Server 2003 Small Business - Server Managment Error.

When I run the Server Managment Application it opens up fine.
If I then try to run any of the wizards it opens up the wizard I request then when I select Next it closes down.
I am awaire that this was an issue with SP 1 & 2 and the easy way would be uninstall SP2 and then setup Remote Access then reinstall SP2 but thats not an answer I want to do.

When I was looking at adding user cal's a couple of days ago it was crashing as per above.   I went into somthing and ticked a box that allowed me to carry on.   I cant remember what I did though.

Any ideas?

I don't know where you got that workaround, but it's not right.

"I went into somthing and ticked a box that allowed me to carry on.   I cant remember what I did though."

More than likely you added the wizard to the Data Execution Prevention exclusion.  This is in System Properties > Advanced > Performance Settings.  (yes, a strange location for it, but that's where it is).

Again, this is a workaround that would indicate that you don't have a properly patched machine, but it will allow you to get the wizards to work.
