Hello.

I am trying to upgrade my Exchange Server 2010 (Currently without any service packs), with SP3.

I have downloaded and extracted Exchange 2010 SP3 - And trying to run setup. However when I run setup, it seems it can't detect my currently installed exchange server.

I have no options called "Install Microsoft Exchange Server upgrade", only the option to Install Microsoft Exchange over again. See attached screenshot.

How do I get the setup file, to locate my currently installed Exchange server, in order to upgrade to SP3?

Thanks.

SP3 you can only install on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 SP2, Microsoft Windows Server 2008R2 or Microsoft Windows Server 2012 coexistence with Exchange 2013 will be possible after installation CU1 (Cumulative Update 1) for Exchange 2013

SP3 is essentially a full exchange install, what makes you think it cannot detect your existing ORG?

I have downloaded the correct SP3 installation file (Also tried again, with the links you provided.)

I am just greeted by the same screen, see attached file.

If I try to proceed with installation, see attached file.

It appears SP3 was already installed - Just me being dumb.
