2003 Exchange Admin Pack to work on Win7

Recently got Hyena, so I can manage things more fluently from my laptop. New laptop is a Win7-64.

In order to remotely admin Exchange, including any "exchange tabs on user Properties", it says I need to install some MS Exchang Admin pack.  currently I normally just remote into the Exchange server and use AD Users from there to admin people or setup new users. If I create the users from AD Users on my desktop, those Exchange tabs do not appear and mailboxes do not get created.

I could continue to just remote into the server, but that is not always ideal.

How do I get this functionality to work from my AD on my Laptop?? (Once I can see them using the MS AD, I'm sure Hyena will work.

You are out of luck running the 2003 tools on the x64 version of Windows 7 unless you want to run XP mode on your system.  See the following link for XP mode overview:  http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

Not cool.. well, we are getting new 2010 exchange server this year, but that's 6 months away.

Thanks for the depressing news.
