MailVault on Microsoft Windows Server 2003
You can run MailVault on Windows Server 2003 to backup and archive email.
However, sometimes there is an issue running MailVault on Windows 2003, caused due to some missing runtime components, which are required. MailVault will probably install cleanly, but will not load when you try to start it.
This is a known issue and resolving it is trivial.
On your Windows 2003 server:
- Download a small executable from the Microsoft website using this URL:http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=5582
- Save it anywhere and run it
- Start MailVault
All should be well.
