Are you installing Blackberry on the server?

Why are you trying to install the CDO.dll on SBS, as it is already installed as part of the exchange installation. If you are trying to install Blackberry on the SBS server, it should utilise the existing cdo.dll, etc. Also if you are installing Blackberry on the SBS server, which version are you installing, is it professional, enterprise or enterprise server express. I think you can install either professional or enterprise express on that SBS 2003, you cannot install full blown enterprise on an SBS, it has to reside on a seperate server, hence the reason for the cdo.dll and mapi.dll being installed.

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

As I said, you cannot install enterprise on an SBS box, it has to sit on it's own server with the exchange management tools installed. I know you can now download the Enterprise server express free from Blackberry, it supports one device and would be the best way to go, but also according to Blackberry tech document it has to sit on a seperate box. If you can still get a hold of Blackberry professional software (you may have to call blackberry), it does install on SBS 2003 as long as it is service packed to SP2 (both exchange and server)

Hi,

You can skip the cdo 1.2.1 warning on sbs2003 with exchange 6.5 sp2. Just lick next the Blackberry installation will continue.

Hope this helps,
Shree

i understand that bb enterprize express can be installed on the sbs 2003 computer, but as part of the preinstallation tasks it says to install the cdo 1.2.1, which i can't. if i just click next, as shreedhar suggests, shall i have later problems or malfunctions because of that?

No, it will work with out any problems. We have installed this way on many SBS 2003 servers.

Have you already checked the current level of the installed on the server, there is a microsoft article on how to check this, might be worthwhile googling it.
