I have rebuilt our SBS 2003 serer (Standard) and now need to install our Trend Micro virus software. The virus software installation starts and after a few moments informs me that I need to close Microsoft Management Console (MMC) before I can continue.

What do I do if nothing else is open?

when you check the task manager, is there no mmc.exe running?

Check your task manager if mmc is still open in the process list, terminate it and continue the installation process.

Thank you for the advice - while it was not the direct solution it did steer me down the right road.

I opened the Task Manager and was able to see how the MMC turned on and off in the Processes. Even with the MMC off, I still received the message referred to in the beginning.

At the start up process of the Trend Micro software there were two options. The default was a pre-scan and there was an option to not do a pre-scan. I selected not to do a pre-scan and installed the software. So it appears that the 'error' was being triggered by Trend's own pre-scan dialog box.

Thank you for your help.

I found issue was the box for "show processes from all users" wasn't checked within the Task Manger, Processes. Once I checked that box the mmc.exe process was then listed and I was able to terminate the process and continue with the Trend upgrade.
