I'm trying to install the first Exchange 2007 on our network. All servers are Server 2003 running on Server 2003 functional level. I'm trying to run setup.com /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions from the command prompt but I get the following message;

Setup failed due to insufficient permissions. Please, make sure that the  current user has local administrator permissions. Error: The source was not found but some or all events logs could not be searched. Inacssible logs: security

The machines I'm running this command is a fresh installation of Server 2008 using 64 bit where I intend to install Exchange. I'm using a domain admin account to do this. I added the domain account to the local administrator groups but nothing. Any ideas?
