Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007 Setup cannot continue its attempt to install the Client Access Server server role, the Mailbox server role, or the Exchange 2007 Administrative Tools on the following Windows operating systems:
Windows Server 2008 R2
Windows Server 2008
Windows 7 (Administrative Tools only)
Windows Vista (Administrative Tools only)
This problem occurs because the Internet Information Server (IIS) 6 Metabase Compatibility component and the IIS 6 Management Console component are not installed.
