When I try and join a Windows 7 Pro system to a Small Business Server 2008 R2 domain using the http://connect I only get so far before it says that "The system does not meet the maximum operating system requirements for running client setup"   CRAZY.

I think this is known problem but I need a very quick fix for the http://connect glych. Has anyone got one.

Or, has anyone get a safe sequence (DNS issues etc) for doing it manually. Thanks,
