Applications are missing after upgrading to Windows Small Business Server 2003.

Cause:  If applications other than those available by default were installed on client computers, they will not be upgraded.

Solution:  You must reinstall these applications on the computer running Windows Small Business Server 2003 and then reinstall them on client computers after the upgrade is complete. Command lines used to install these applications are stored in the registry in the following location:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\clientsetup\sbs2k_archive\Client Applications\

CautionCaution
Incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data on the computer.

After the upgrade is complete, start the Client Setup Applications Wizard and use the command lines to reinstall the applications.

To start the Client Setup Applications Wizard
  1. Click Start, and then click Server Management.

  2. In the console tree, click Client Computers. In the details pane, click Set Up Client Applications.

  3. Follow the instructions in the wizard to add client applications.
