Updated: February 2, 2011

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

This topic describes how to install Forefront TMG on your computer in interactive mode. In interactive mode, you monitor the installation process, and enter the required setup information when prompted by the setup process. To run setup in interactive mode, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer.

Before installing Forefront TMG, you must run the Preparation Tool to verify that the applications that are required for the successful installation of Forefront TMG are installed on your computer. If you run Forefront TMG without first running the Preparation Tool, the installation of Forefront TMG will fail if the computer does not include the required applications. These applications vary by installation type.

“Forefront TMG detected Windows Filtering Platform filters that may cause policy conflicts on the server. The following providers may define filters that conflict with Forefront TMG firewall policy: Microsoft Corporation.”
