To verify the version of the Exchange 2007 for the media you have with you, you can check the version of Setup.exe. If in case you have 8.1.240.3 then you have Exchange 2007 with SP1.

You can verfiy the versions by comparing it with this article:

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Hi,
What is the base OS, can you please confirm the base OS once again, I agree you have said that it is Windows 2008, but I need a confirmation please. Run ExBPA on the server and let me know.
As far as one of the errors, download and install: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=CC41218D-7E37-4546-BF0B-1276959EE3EF&displaylang=en

Are you using RTM media or SP1 media?
You can only install Exchange 2007 SP1 on to Windows 2008. RTM is not compatible.
You can download Exchange 2007 SP1 x64 from Microsoft and use that as the service pack is the complete installation.

The base OS is Windows 2008 Enterprise Edition 64-Bit with SP1. Plesae clear me the following  -

How do I check whether the Exchange 2007 software is included with SP1 or not?

Is it true that Exchange 2007 with SP1 is only compatible with Windows 2008?

Whenever I am trying to install the Windows Media Encoder 9 Series x64 Edition it's giving the following error:

The media should show what version it is trying to install. I think the splash screen says so as well. If it doesn't say SP1 then I would doubt if it is Sp1 media.

As for what I said about the compatibility, if you don't believe me then here it is from Microsoft: http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2007/08/16/446709.aspx

If you are in any doubt then simply download Exchange 2007 SP1 from Microsoft and try installing that.

Thanks Mestha for your suggestion. The splash screen is not showing SP1. Let me download Exchange 2007 SP1 and then I'll try to install.

However, if I want to run EBPA tool on Windwos 2008 platform it is showing Microsoft .Net framework 1.1 is required for installation, but I have already installed the .NET Framework 3.0 as it comes along with Windows 2008.  I also downloaded the .NET Framework 2.0 x64 and tried to install, it is showing "The product is already installed as a part of the Operating System".

Hi X-sam, the version is showing 8.0.685.24, that means the Exchange is without SP1. Let me download Exchange 2007 SP1 and install it.
