I am trying to install outlook 2010 X64 on Server 2008R2 that has exchange 2010 running on it but it will not install.
it doesnt give me a specific error, it appears to install normally but at the very end it gives me a message that says that it incurred and error and could not install. I also tried to install office 2010 pro X64 and got the same result. The server 2008R2 is running in a VM - i don't thinkg that should be the issue. Any ideas?

Server 2008 R2 is not listed as supported:
Supported Operating Systems:
- Windows XP with Service Pack (SP) 3 (32-bit)
- Windows Vista with SP1 (32-bit or 64-bit)
- Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-bit or 64-bit)
- Windows Server 2008 with SP2 (32-bit or 64-bit)
- Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit)
In addition, I don't think this issue only happens on Outlook, I believe it is a office 2010 64bit issue. So I move this thread into Office 2010 setup and deployment forum.
i read the requirements initially but it states " Windows Server 2008 or later (32-bit or 64-bit)"
I assumed the "or later" to mean SP1, SP2, R2, etc
Is there a timeline as to when it will work on Windows Server 2008 R2? I have Exchange 2010 on this server and need Outlook 2010 X64 in order to import/export pst files
What Windows Server 2008 R2 version are you using? I just tried to install Office 2010 ProPlus 64bit on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise edition, and that worked 100%.

yes - full admin rights - it's running exchange 2010 as well which i installed and configured with no issue
i wish it would give me an error message - it goes through the entire install and at the end the screen looks exactly like the installation successful screen with the exception that it states that it incurred and error and could not install
I do have AVG antivirus running but I wouldnt think that it would prevent the install
I was under the impression that you should NEVER install Outlook (or office) onto a server that has Exchange Server already installed.
I may be wrong but the question begs why do you want Outlook installed on the mailserver? Outlook is a client app not a server app, except when installed on a Terminal Server.
I had a browse and found this:-
So I wouldn't try it.
