Are you using the Exchange 2007 SP2 installation Tool for SBS?

If not - you should be!

Just install SP3. You won't need the SBS tool.

Before running the update:
Stop all AV services and stop: Windows SBS Manager Service.

Don't bother with SP2. Was very buggy.

Hope that helps,

As per what Olafdc has said, are you trying to install SP2 or SP3 now?

SP3 should be a clean install on the exchange environment.

That error message comes from which install - SP2 or SP3?
