Error Sharepoint Portal Server Required





    I am trying to install Forefront for Sharepoint 2007 and get an error stating "Setup believes that you may not have the required Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server installed"


    This system is Windows 2003 Enterprise service pack 2 32 bit with SharePoint 2007 Enterprise. The virtual environment is made up of a seperate SQL 2005 server and another server hosting the WFE.


    Any help would be appreciated.
