Client setup cannot be copied to this computer - SBS2003 P R2

I am replacing an existing customers SBS2003 Premium R2 server. I have given the server a newname but retained domain name. In the past I disconnect the client workstations from the previous domain and migrate them to a workgroup, run the connectcomputer wizard recoonect to domain and I'm done.

Not this time though. I get the error message "Files that are critical to client setup cannot be copied to this computer. A network adminstrator must reinstall the Client Deployment component on the server....

Well I have done this - No change
There is a number of articles suggesting that I reconfigure URLScan security tool to allow .exe files.
Now I'm not sure if I am on the right track here but where do I find this tool and modify?
Any assistance greatly appreciated.

The URL Scan Security tool is found here:

Check out this forum thread for someone who had the same symptoms and successfully resolved it.

Thanks. Since posting I have found URL Scan but as I read it is not required in IIS6 although "can" be used.
I have since downloaded and installed with no change. As a result I have uninstalled and still get the same result.

As for the article you mention. Been there done that (thanks anyway) but it made no difference.
So I sit here clutching straws. Seems to me searching google that this problem exists and there are a number of different solutions for this.

Thanks
Philip
