I try to run setup.exe /DisasterRecovery and get a pop-up about "known compatibility with this version of windows" and I am allowed to continue but then I quickly reach a FINISH screen and nothing was installed.

Nothing.

Should I install dotnet3 and dotnet3.5 first before running the exchange installer?  Could that be it?

Yes could be. The best bet would be to ensure you have the latest Service Pack installed!

When I installed all the latest software it worked smoothly.

Also, I ran:


setup.exe /DisasterRecovery (to install exchange 2003)

setup.exe /DisasterRecovery (to install sp1)

update.exe /DisasterRecovery (to install sp2)

And only after all that did I restore the db.
