  • Are you trying to install Exchange 2013 on Windows 2008 server? And not R2?

    It is not supported.

  • No!  I have installed Exchange 2013 on MS 2012 standard server, as stated above.  The AD which means Active Directory is located on a 2008 R2 server which is also the DC which means Domain Controller.  Which is very much supported.
