I have a VMware VM that I have installed with Windows 2008 Server SP2 (64-bit) and I am installing Exchange 2010 on it. I am using the installation from Exchange 2010 SP1 and I can't get past a number of errors that say I need to apply hotfixes based on KB articles bla bla bla. I am dead in the water on this install until these errors are cleared. I can't get past the readiness checks due to it.
I'm going handle this one error at a time.
My first error:
When Exchange does readiness checks, my Hub Transport Role Prerequisites FAIL. It says the computer requires "the update described in Microsoft Knowledge Base articles 977624 (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=977624
). Without this update, the RMS features may stop working."
I proceed to:
and on this web page it has only the option to request a Vista fix. There are notes saying that this is the SAME fix required for Windows Server 2008.
I make the request
I get a link in my e-mail,
I download the fix using the link and get a file called "399943 intl i386 zip.exe"
I run the download and it extracts another file called "Windows6.0-KB977624-v2-x8
6.msu" and this updater tells me, "The update does not apply to your system"
Thanks for nothing Microsoft. I would appreciate any help solving this error.
