Ensure the Needed Software Is Installed First

  • Solution: When attempting to perform the installation from the ISO file or the DVD, you are presented with a graphic screen that indicates whether those first three items are installed before proceeding to Step 4, which is Install Microsoft Exchange. One way to install those options is to click the links from the installation screen, or, you can seek out and install these features personally. In some cases, you might not need to install them.

.NET Framework v. 3.0 or 2.0 with Hotfix or SP1

On Server 2008, perform the following steps:

  1. Select Start, and then click the Control Panel.
  2. From Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools.
  3. From Administrative Tools, double-click Server Manager.
  4. From within the Server Manager console tree, choose Features, and then select Add Features.
  5. Using the Add Features Wizard, select .NET Framework 3.0, and then finish the wizard.

On Server 2003, you are welcome to download the 3.0 Framework and install. If you are already running 2.0, you will be prompted that there has been an update to this version for download before the installation of Exchange will take place. Or, you can simply download the .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 (which includes the update).

Make sure you use the 64-bit version of the .NET Framework.

Microsoft Management Console (MMC) 3.0

If you run Server 2003 R2 or Server 2008, the 3.0 Microsoft Management Console (MMC) is already installed, and you do not need to do anything else. If you work with Server 2003 (pre-R2), you might need to install the MMC 3.0, which can be downloaded either from the installation portal link or by downloading it directly from Microsoft at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=907265.

PowerShell 1.0

Installing PowerShell from Server 2008 is done in the following way:

  1. Select Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. From Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools.
  3. From Administrative Tools, double-click Server Manager.
  4. From within the Server Manager console tree, choose Features, and then select Add Features.
  5. Using the Add Features Wizard, select PowerShell, and then finish the wizard.

If you are working with Server 2003, you need to download and install PowerShell. This can be done through the installation portal link or by going to the download site (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=926139) for PowerShell and performing the download and install manually.
