We are in the process of migrating a client from sbs 2003 to sbs2011.
We are ready to remove exchange 2003 but when we go to add/remove programs, Windows SBS2003 and hit change/remove, all we get is brief pop up that states  "Setup is loading insallation components. components 2 of 40. then the box just closes.

the SBS server is sbs2003 SP2. it is not R2.

Thank you,

Joe
