Installing the Exchange 2007 Management Tools on a Windows 7 32Bit machine.

    Question

  • Has anyone gotten the Exchange 2007 Management Tools to install on Windows 7 32Bit?
    Anyone know why the Tool does not integrate into the MMC Snap-in like it did in the past? It was really convient to have everything I needed in one place and I was also able to change User Exchange Settings directly in the AD.

  • Hi PDV,

    The problem that you have mentioned is a different issue that you are facing during installation.  Please create a new thread.  This is not the appropriate forum to discuss this thread.

    Please post the issue in the Exchange server forums.  The technical team will contact you and resolve this issue at the earliest.

    Thanks,

  • Hi Paolo_ks2008,

    Thanks for your post.

    Please go through the procedures for Installing  the Exchange 2007 Management Tools,


    Applies to:
    Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007

    This topic explains how to use the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Setup wizard to install the Exchange 2007 management tools. You can use the management tools to administer your Exchange organization remotely. The management tools include the following:

    ·     Exchange Management Console

    ·     Exchange Management Shell

    ·     Exchange Help file

    ·     Microsoft Exchange Best Practices Analyzer Tool

    ·     Exchange Troubleshooting Assistant Tool

     Before You Begin

    To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Organization Administrator role. For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007.

    Before installing the Exchange management tools, you must first install the necessary prerequisites for Exchange 2007. For detailed steps to install the necessary prerequisites, see Exchange 2007 System Requirements and How to Install Exchange 2007 SP1 and SP2 Prerequisites on Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista.

    Also, before you perform this procedure, be aware of the following:

    ·        If the computer on which you install the Exchange management tools has a 64-bit processor and 64-bit operating system, you must install the 64-bit version of the management tools. If the computer on which you install the Exchange management tools has a 32-bit processor and 32-bit operating system, you must install the 32-bit version of the management tools. To download the 64-bit version of the management tools, use the same media or download that you use to install Exchange 2007. For 32-bit download information, see Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Management Tools (32-Bit).

    ·     The following table lists the supported operating systems for installing only the Exchange management tools.

    Supported operating systems for Exchange management tools

     

    Exchange version

    Supported operating systems

    Release to manufacturing (RTM) version of Exchange 2007, 32-bit processor

    o    Windows Server 2003 SP1, Standard Edition or Enterprise Edition

    o    Windows Server 2003 R2, Standard Edition or Enterprise Edition

    o    Windows XP SP2


    Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1), 32-bit processor

    o    Windows Vista

    o    Windows Server 2008, Standard or Enterprise Edition

    o    Windows Server 2003 SP2, Standard Edition or Enterprise Edition

    o    Windows Server 2003 R2 with SP2, Standard Edition or Enterprise Edition

    o    Windows XP SP2

     

     

    ·     If you install Exchange 2007 or earlier (or the associated management tools) on the same computer that is running Outlook 2007 and the user's mailbox is enabled for Unified Messaging (UM), you cannot use the Voice Mail tab in Outlook 2007 to configure voice mail options. The voice mail options on this tab will be dimmed. However, you can use Outlook Web Access to configure voice mail options.
    To resolve this issue, perform the following steps:

    1.     Uninstall Microsoft Exchange or any Microsoft Exchange management tools.

    2.     In Registry Editor, locate the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Messaging Subsystem\MSMapiApps

     

    Caution:

    Incorrectly editing the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Problems resulting from editing the registry incorrectly may not be able to be resolved. Before editing the registry, back up any valuable data.

     

    3.     Delete the following values:
    String: EMSMDB32.DLL
    String: EMSABP32.DLL

    4.     Reinstall Outlook 2007 on the server.

     

     

    Installing Exchange 2007 or earlier (or the associated management tools) on a computer that is running Outlook 2007 or earlier is unsupported. For more information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 266418, Microsoft does not support installing Exchange Server components and Outlook on the same computer.

     

    ·    
     Exchange 2007 System Requirements.

     Procedure

     To use the Exchange Server 2007 Setup wizard to install the Exchange 2007 management tools

    1.  Log on to the server on which you want to install the management tools.

    2.  Run Setup.exe from either the directory where you downloaded Exchange 2007 or from the DVD.

    3.  On the Start page, complete Steps 1 through 3.

     

    Note:

    If you already have Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, Microsoft Management Console (MMC) 3.0, and Microsoft Windows Power Shell installed, these steps will be unavailable. If you have not installed Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, Setup will link to .NET Framework Developer Center. If you have not installed Microsoft Management Console (MMC) 3.0, Setup will link to MMC 3.0 update is available for Windows Server 2003 and for Windows XP. If you have not installed Microsoft Windows PowerShell, Setup will link to Windows PowerShell 1.0 English Language Installation Packages for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 and for Windows XP Service Pack 2.

     

    4.  On the Start page, click Step 4: Install Microsoft Exchange. Setup copies the setup files locally to the computer on which you are installing Exchange 2007.

    5.  In the Exchange Server 2007 Setup wizard, on the Introduction page, click Next.

    6.  On the License Agreement page, click I Accept the terms in the license agreement, and then click Next.

    7.  On the Error Reporting page, click Yes or No, and then click Next.

    8.  On the Installation Type page, click Custom Exchange Server Installation. If you want to change the path for the Exchange 2007 installation, click Browse, locate the appropriate folder in the folder tree, and then click OK. Click Next.


    Installation Type page

    Installation Type page of Setup Wizard

    9.  On the Server Role Selection page, select Management Tools.

     

    Note:

    The management tools are installed automatically if you install any other server role.

     



    10. 
    Server Role Selection page
    Server Role Selection Page of Setup Wizard

     

    11.  If this is the first Exchange 2007 server in your organization, on the Exchange Organization page, type a name for your Exchange 2007 organization.

    The Exchange Server organization name can contain only the following characters:

    o  A through Z

    o  a through z

    o  0 through 9

    o  Space (not leading or trailing)

    o  Hyphen or dash

    The organization name cannot contain more than 64 characters. The organization name cannot be blank. If the organization name contains spaces, you must enclose it in quotation marks.

    12.  On the Readiness Checks page, view the status to determine if the organization and server role prerequisite checks completed successfully. If they have completed successfully, click Install to install Exchange 2007.

    13.  On the Completion page, click Finish.

    I hope these procedure resolves your issue.  In case of any problems on the same, please post us back.

    Thanks

  • Thanks ANBU M...but I already found this Article and another one specifically for 32Bit OS´s.

    After you choose Management Tools at this step here:

    10.  Server Role Selection page
    Server Role Selection Page of Setup Wizard

    Exchange does a System check and then comes up with an error saying "System not supported" or something to that effect and then the install routine ends.
    The only workaround that I have been able to find so far is installing the Remote Admin Tools and the Exchange Admin Tools on a W28K Terminal Server.
    Which actually is not a bad idea on the security side, I should not really be Administering these Systems on my PC Workstation anyway.
    But I still don´t like the fact that MS split the two worlds up again, after bringing them together in W2K and selling it to us as the "Great Solution"
    I know this is better for MS, their Developers from the AD side and the Exchange side can work seperately and do their own thing without having to check with the other one all the time, but it sux for us Admins!!


    CIAO,
    PDV

  • Hi Paolo_ks2008,

    I tried installing the Exchange Server 2007 SP1 Setup in Windows 7 32bit OS and it was successful.

    I used the link http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=6BE38633-7248-4532-929B-76E9C677E802&displaylang=en and selected the “E2K7SP1EN32.exe” and opted for the “Run” option.

    After the Installation I can open the application successfully.

    Note:

    1)      I Installed the Exchange Server 2007 SP1 in a VM with Windows 7 32bit OS.

    2)      Installed the application using an Admin user with full privileges.

    3)      “E2K7SP1EN32.exe” is the latest installer of Exchange 2007.

    In case, if you still face problems with the installation, please post back.

    Thanks
    Anbu M

  • Hi Paolo_ks2008,

    I tried helping you on this issue, even though this is not exactly for this forum.
    There are separate forums for Exchange server.

    Have you followed the above mentioned steps?
    In case, could you please brief me the stage in which you were stuck up with the error message.

    Thanks
    Anbu M

  • Hi Anbu M,

    Thanks for the Link...It got me a little farther along as the install I was using, but I now get another error which is rather strange.
    It says that the Machine I am trying to install Exchange on is not a member of a valid Site. This is not the case though, and Im a little unsure of how to proceed.

    It gives me a link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998159.aspx


    Thanks for your help,

    PDV
