I have a HP ML350 G5 server running SBS 2008.   I can join XP pro machnes to the domain.   I cannot join any Windows 7 Pro pc's.

Trend Micro v8 is running on the server.

I have installed dotnet v3.5

I have tried the following:
 - Added rollout 6 as rollout 3 doesn't seem to exist anymore.
 - NSlookup http://connect shows:
    server:  ml350.st2.local  (which is correct)
    address:  192.168.0.2  (correct)

Below this is:
   ***  ml350.st2.local can't find http://connect  non existant domain.

From the Windows 7 Pro pc I can successfully ping ml350.st2.local
On the Windows 7 pc network interface, I manually set the DNS to 192.168.0.2
I manually added ml350.st2.local in the DNS "Append these DNS suffixes " area.

I have tried to use the Launcher.exe program.  It tells me:
"this computer does not meet the maximum operating system requirements for running client setup".

I don't know what to do now.   Please advise!!

This is a known issue and you need to install update rollup 3 to fix this

Please make sure, you backup the server before any updates

Hello, I appreciate your help.  Rollup 3 NO LONGER EXISTS!!   It is now rollup 3.  Please!!  I pay for this service.  I really want answers to be thoughtful and researched.

Now, for the actual answer.   I finally discovered after 19 hours of work, the problem is with TrendMicro.  See this link for the answer:
