Problem setting up SBS server 2003 to allow remote desktop

I am running SBS server 2003 and I am using the Remote Access Wizard from the to do list and I keep getting the following error:
*** Running IExpress to build the package returned ERROR 80004005
*** ERROR: Cannot delete temp directory CMP49.tmp
Specifying error location (in CMAK) returned OK
*** CRRASCommit::CommitCMAK returned ERROR 80004005
*** CRRASCommit::CommitEx returned ERROR 80004005
I am attaching the complete rraslog.txt file.
it looked to me that the RRAS wizard failed to create the CMAK package: SBSpackage.exe in the clientapps directory which was in the default location on the standard C:\ClientAPPS location.  
I tried moving to the folder using the instructions from http://support.microsoft.com/?id=830254  (830254 How to move the client programs folder to another location.) which I then moved the folder to E:\ClientAPPS and rebooted. I tried to run the Remote Access Wizard again with the same problem.
Anyone got any idea how to fix this?
Thanks in advance,
Any input or comments are highly appreciated.

More specifically, it looks like you may have applied Windows Server 2003 SP1 to your SBS server, but not the remainder of the required files that collectively make up SBS 2003 SP1.  More details can be found here:


Make sure to download and install those five files in the correct order.
