ESM Exchange 2003 on Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I see some older threads that are a bit hard to follow regarding this. What is the official Microsoft solution if an administrator wants to run Exchange System Manager for Exchange 2003 on ones Windows 7 x64 or x86 system? Also on those systems to be able to run ADUC and have the Exchange tabs and create new accounts with mailboxes.

    Is there a link to the official procedure?

  • There's no official procedure because it is not supported:

    There are a few hacks out there that might get you up and running, including this one from 'sofaking':
