We recently deployed Windows 7 SP1 64bit to all the IT staff and the user support team required Exchange Management Tools installed on their workstations. I just asked them to go ahead and copy the installer on the local disk and fire up the installation as administrator and choose management tools in a custom installation. I was told that there was a compatibility issue error while doing the installation.
I installed the following features just to make sure that the perquisites are met.
- IIS 6 Management Console
- IIS 6 WMI Compatibility
- IIS Metabase and IIS 6 configuration Compatibility
- IIS Management Console
I tried the installation again as administrator and checked the compatibility mode to Vista SP2, got the following error.
So trusting in the good old restart trick I restarted and ran the same setup as administrator and compatibility mode (right click > Properties > Compatibility) Vista SP2. It worked like a charm!
