This hotfix looks like the one I need. However, when I request the hotfix from the server it detects the server as a windows vista 64 bit machine.  I downloaded the hotfix but when I go to apply it the hotfix  install program states the hotfix is not the correct version for my computer.   The server is a dual xeon system running 64 bit SBS 2008 standard.  Any ideas?

I see the web site shows it is for both Vista and Server 2008 but may show as only one. So the fact that it says it's for Vista doesn't surprise me, but the fact that it will not install is a surprise. It is possible it detects SBS differently. This has occurred with other hotfixes as well.
You may need to contact Microsoft to resolve. In some cases hotfix support calls are free.
