Microsoft Exchange Transport Server

I have just installed Windows Server std 2008, and then started to install Exchange 2007 onto a Standalone Server. As soon as I go to finalize the install I get a Exchange Transport Server error, when I check the Service as it needs to be running to finalize the installation, it just says Starting, but never starts, I have formatted and reinstalled this Server in the hope that it may have been a dodgy install, and this Service still wont start, meaning I am unable to finish the Exchange 2007 Server installation.

Any help would be great

I have another couple of silly questions for you ..

1) is the computer part of a domain (I know it seems dumb but I am just checking)

2) the person you are logged in with is an administrator in the domain and also has enterprise admin rights?

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

lastly can you check the status of IPv6 on the computer you are trying to install on.. it must not be disabled on the computer or you will run into the problems you are.. you can renable it and then the errors should disappear

Thanks for that, the training DVD I used was for 2003 Server and Exchange 2007, and they disabled IPv6. I have 3 more of these to do, you have made my job so much easier, as I have been stuck on this for a couple of days, and was about to log a call with MS.
