Windows 7 can't connect to SBS 2008

When I try to connect Windows 7 to a fully patched SBS 2008 server I get
>>
Verify computer requirements - Unsuccessful.
Operating System Requirements

This is the same problem as http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2008/Q_24869670.html

That was posted five months ago. I would assume the fix would be incorporated in an update by now. Regardless, I cannot find where to download rollup 3

Hi,

Update the SBS 2008 with Update Rollup 3.

You need to perform Windows Update to install the same.

Refer this:

Hope this helps,
Shree

I would really like to install rollup 3 but I can't find where to download it. The site http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969121 does not have a link to where it can be downloaded

This is not a beta version of Windows 7

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

Click on Start > R Click on Computer > Properties
At bottom left click on Windows Update
You should see a link at the bottom of all that text that says
"Check online for updates from Microsoft Update"   Click that link
I suspect you'll get Update Rollup 3

Search 969121
Click Add button and click View Basket link.
In the new page, click Download button.

You'd think it would be an automatic update by now
