.net installed (Pic 2).

I installed Microsoft Unified Communications Managed API 2.0 SDK (64 bit) from the following link:

Hi Arabsoft_Security,

Try to start the installation again on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 SP2 because Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 is not supported operating system for Office Communication Server R2:


And dont worry about the steps you have just finished like AD and Schema prep because ocs will find and detect that this step was completed and continue on the other steps.

However you can find a lot of work arounds that may make the installation completed like what it came here http://it-proknowledge.blogspot.com/2009/09/ocs-2007-r2-on-windows-server-2008-r2.html 

but it will not works fine and you will face many other problems that will make you alway busy on solving it.
