I am getting an error when installing Office 2007 STD on the SBS 2008 Server. I have managed to install the Office 2003 but need the 2007 for the GFI faxmaker converter. I receive the following

Microsoft Office Standard 2007 setup did not complete successfully. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

I have tried the Office Fixit site  by removing all Office 2007 attempts. And I am out of ideas. Thx Sam

The short answer is; you DON'T. Office is a client program and should never be installed on a server (terminal servers being the sole exception.) similarly, you wouldn't install Exchange on your home machine just to send and receive email (you'd use outlook, thunderbird, or similar and connect to a mail server.)
More specifically, however, Office dll's have very real and documented conflicts with Exchange dll's, so installing office will break your server. Don't do it.

Talking to the SBS team @ Microsoft or their documentation no such comment was ever made. They just want me to pay $550 for the solution. I will if no one at this site can help. I am surprised of your responce.

This is not an exceptabel solution.

You can spend the money if you want, but the answer I gave is Microsoft's official position: Outlook and Exchange *never* go on the same server, as documented in a *!!!MICROSOFT KB ARTICLE!!!*
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/266418
So I'm not sure why you feel that this answer is not acceptable when it is the official answer MS gives.
Servers are not clients machines and shouldn't be used as such, and vice versa. Pure and simple.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I can play whack-a-mole and keep posting documents that show that office products (not just outlook) should not go on an exchange server (or any server for that matter) but I am choosing not to. It is a bad practice, is not supported, and will make a mess of your server.

You would be better served calling gfi, not ms, and getting the server version of their product set up properly, which I can say from personal experience, has NO office dependencies.
