Hi there,
Outlook web access etc stopped working on a clients SBS 2008 server. We spent some time looking into before deciding to follow a microsoft paper on resintalling. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=320202
We have managed to uninstall the Client Access Applications, however, we can't reinstall them as we get an error of:
"Specified Directory C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\BIN\CMPNENTS\EXCHSRV80 Does not exist.

The folder doesn't exist, and it doesn't exist on the SBS 2008 CDs. There is an Exchange12 folder on DVD 2 but that doesn't work.

Has anyone seen this before, or have any ideas on how to reinstall this? I saw another post about this on Experts Exchange however the solution they used was to reinstall the server, this is not an option for me.

Worked a treat. Just copy the EXCHSRV12 folder to the C drive, and tell the install tool to use that folder for location of files and it works.

Beware, the reinstall put the applications into the Default Website and not SBS web sites as they were before. you need to mess around with port numbers to get them to work again.
