Hi guys,

I'm having some issues with security in outlook 2010 installed on windows 2008R2 RDS server when being accessed by our main workflow application.  Before outlook 2010 we used to control outlook security by using a security form stored in exchange public folders.  Now with outlook 2010 this has changed somewhat.  Using win7, it detects that there is AV installed and is not a problem.  But with a RDS server, it shows as "Antivirus status: Unavailable. This version of Windows does not support antivirus detection.
I can't find anything conclusive on the net, other than reg hacks or installing software etc.

If anyone can help point me in the right direction with this it would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Jim

Server editions of Windows do not have the "Security Center" feature that consolidates AV and firewall status, therefore WMI queries and API calls that rely on this feature do not work.  There is no workaround.

Hi Phil,

I have found a way round this :-)  installing Outlook14-simplemapi.adm detailed here - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2723336.  I think I glossed over this article the first time as I picked up on using .ADM so dismissed it stupidly.

This has resolved the issue which I'm glad as we're planning to rollout 2008r2 this year which will be accessed by 200+ users.

Thanks Cliff for responding.

Regards,

Jim

I was not convinced Phil was right, so I continued to research this and looked back at what I had already researched... Finding the answer right in front of me.
