When I try to launch my Windows Server 2003 virtual machine from within the MS Virtual Server R2 management webpage, I get an error that says "Error on page" & the virtual machine won't launch (see screenshot).

The host operating system is Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server and I am using Internet Explorer 8 (see screenshot).

All Windows updates have been installed on this server.

What do I need to do to fix this?

Or, is there any other way of starting and administering MS Virtual Server 2005 virtual machines besides using Internet Explorer?

Use VMRCPlus from Microsoft to manage Virtual Server 2005 R2.

You should be running Virtual server 2005 R2 SP1 with the update rollup.  Available at

So VMRCPlus allows me to manage Microsoft Virtual Server R2 virtual machines with an actual program (similar to what Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 uses) WITHOUT having to use the web browser interface?

Yes. It's pretty handy. You can run it locally or remotely.
