Background: Installing a new Exchange 2007 server into an existing SBS2003 domain. I have read several articles and tutorials on this, and was prepared for prerequisite alerts regarding AD and domain controller issues. However, all of the info I have been able to find has stated that these issues would be presented through the Exchange Setup GUI, as in, the installer, upon running, would indicate what additional setup steps I need to take.
But the installer doesn't run at all. Instead, I get an error message that "ExSetupUI.exe has stopped working," and the event below recorded in the event log.
Am I missing something here? The WinSvr2008 is joined to my domain as a member server at this point. I expected to be required to dcpromo it to an additional DC before continuing with the install. But the article I found on MSExchange.org had a screenshot of the Exchange 2007 installer telling the user they needed to promote a DC. I can't even get the installer to run.
Any help would be most appreciated.
