admin pack install error on 2003 server's.

Hello,

I have two 2003 systems each with sp2 installed. I've downloaded the admin pak from Microsoft but on install i get the following error:2003 admin tools can only be installed on xp pro with sp1 or on computers running windows server 2003 operating systems".
I'm trying to install on to a 2003 system - any ideas?
Thank you

No need to download; just check your %systemroot%\system32 folder, the adminpak in the required version is there.

That worked thank you. Can i ask, I have an AD domain with 2 test user account. I installed exchange on a seperate server. My i look into the properties of teh 2 existing account i dont see the "exchange tabs". I was told to install teh admin pack on teh exchange server. I've now doen this (thanks to you) if if a create a third user in teh domain the email tabs are present but there not there for the first 2 original accounts. Am i doing something wrong?
Thank you.

The first two don't have an email account because Exchange wasn't installed when these accounts were created.
Right-click the user in the console, choose "Exchange tasks", and create mailboxes for them.
