Problems installing Exchange 2003 SP1 & SP2 for Small Business Server 2003

Hello & thanks for your help with this issue! We have recently taken responsibility for a Small Business Server 2003 client server (not built or previously supported by us) and are trying to update it in order to resolve a couple of issues with Exchange 2003 Outlook Web Access. In particular the Red Cross issue in the main text area when composing or replying to email messages in OWA. The articles I have already reviewed advise we need to ensure Exchange 2003 SP1 & SP2 are installed, but each time I try to run SP1 I receive an error message "A fatal setup error has occured" and refers me to the eventlog.txt file (which I have attached) for further information. I would appreciate someone casting their technical eye over the eventlog file & providing any guidence or suggestions as to how to progress this issue, preferably without having to completely remove & reinstall Exchange - though if this is the only way to fix the issue then I will carry out the necessary procedure. Many thanks in advance! Justin.

Thanks for your help gaffie, right on the mark! Following KB839495's registry additions allowed Exchange SP1 to be installed & SP2 was also installled with just one error, but this did not seem to cause any problems with Exchange operation. With these dependencies in place KB911829 could then be installed to fix the red X isssue for Vista users. Thanks again, Justin.
