More RWW woes with XP SP2 and SP3

Following on from my blog regarding RWW on SBS2008 ( and the need to have XP SP3 or RDC 6.1 for XP SP2.
After applying the following, I had a client who still could not connect to RWW. An error message appeared.
“The wizard cannot configure Remote Desktop Connection settings. Make sure that the client version of Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 6.0 or later is installed on this computer”
But it was installed!!??? Check out
Go to the Internet Explorer Add-Ons, and enable the Microsoft Terminal Services Client Control ActiveX control or the Microsoft RDP client Control ActiveX control.
If this is already enabled, or after this is enabled, you will also need to re-register the ActiveX control.
Run the following commandregsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\mstscax.dll

SBS 2008 Content Filter Updates

For the past month, I have received less than 10 emails in total. How did this happen? I used a combination of IMF Tune v4.1 for Exchange 2007 and TrendMicro Worry Free Business Security Advanced v5.1 beta with Anti Spam setting to medium.

This worked great until yesterday…. Then I started getting few spam messages continuing until today. I had a look to see if the Content Filtering Updates were happening and discovered a whole new world of working with what used to be called IMF in SBS 2003.

This is an excellent article which highlights the differences and how to make the necessary changes to update.
However, I found that some of the steps had already been performed, probably by the tweaked version of Exchange 2007 that ships with SBS 2008.

The general steps are as follows:
1. Enable updates (should already be enabled in SBS2008). Go to Exchange Management Console – Server Configuration – Hub Transport. The action pane on the left shows either Enable Anti-spam updates or Disable Anti-spam updates. You can click and re click to toggle this. When enabling, set everything to Automatic.
2. Check to see that you have the latest update using the Exchange Management Shell. Use the command get-AntiSpamUpdates to check the installed version.
3. Go to Microsoft Updates to see if there is a newer version. You can also subscribe to the Exchange Server 2007 anti-spam RSS feed here –
