Exchange Server 2003 SP2

I am running MS Exchange Server 2003 SP2 on a Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 platform
Also installed is Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 - Device Update 4.0

I need to install a 3rd party fax connector on the machine and am wondering the impact.
The changes to be made involve installing a fax connector including
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0*
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 runtime components*

I am wondering will this have any impact on my current MS Exchange environment?
I need to be sure before I install.

If your Exchange version is designed to use .Net framework 1.1, it will continue using it event if you install all the other framework versions.

Hope that helps.

I don't think you're getting any trouble doing this. Different versions of Microsoft .NET Framework can be installed  and co-exist in the same machine (in fact, they were designed exactly to do that). And Visual C++ runtimes shouldn't be a problem, too.

I think you can go on with your installation with calm. But don't forget to create a restore point before start, for your security.

Hope that helps.

Have you conacted the supplier to confirm this is compatible with your exchange servers and that it will not cause any issues ? That would be my first step.

I have contacted the supplier and it is compatible.
The product is Rightfax 9.4, a well known market leader made by Opentext / Captaris.
I was just triple checking to see if anyone had experienced issues with similar installations

Anoter question - will IIS in Exchange continue to use Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 - Device Update 4.0 or will it starting using the newly installed Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0?
This may impact some servcices such as Outlook Web Access.
