Exchange Installation Help One of the nicest things in Exchange 2007 is the way the installation and support interface has been improved. So much has been written about PowerShell but I am a big fan of the way they continue to improve the GUI experience as well. First of all, the subtle use of providing PowerShell syntax with every wizard execution is a great way to make beginners more comfortable with the command line. The second is the feedback you get upon installation of Exchange server. In days past you would get some kind of cryptic 08x0048394 error when an installation pre-requisite was not met or something didn’t happen right under the covers. This has been slowly getting better, but what you get now with Exchange 2007 is nothing short of excellence. I don’t know if this has been baked in to other products as well as I haven't played with the new versions of other products yet. Here is a shot of the feedback when installing the Exchange management tools in preparation to run LoadGen for some performance testing. I can then easily click on the link and go to the relevant KB article, download the hot fix for .net and be on my way.
