Im having problems getting the Management tools from 2007 to install on my Windows 7 Ent 32 bit desktop. I have install the pre reqs for Exchange, added the II6 compatibility roles under windows features per microsofts KB article. I am a member of the appropate exhange group as well and still once the readiness check passes and I click install, I get the error message:

The system cannot find the file specified.

Any ideas what its looking for or what I could be missing?

Which CD\version of E2k7 Management tools are you trying to install?

Can you try installing the "E2k7 SP3" version of the Management Tools on the Windows7

I am using SP3, I read that this version is required for Windows 7. Since my exchange environment is not SP3, could this cause the problem?

IMO, shouldn't be.

Reason: When we try to access the servers\settings from the older version of the tools...we would get an warning to "use the current and latest version(s)" of the management tools.

The reverse shouldn't be a problem.
