Hi I have just got a load of windows 7 machines and I'm trying to join them to a 2008 domain using the http://connect option. All of them are failing saying this computer does meet the requirements. . I have look at microsoft article kb969121 but the server says there are know new updates to install. I can join them to the domain using the right click on My computer option but the customer obviosly wants to do it the same way as the vista and XP

Please can someone help need surely windows 7 should work on sbs 2008 by now.

Many thanks
