Cause

An attempt was made to install the Softalk Share Server provider on an Exchange server.

Detail

It is not permissible to install the Softalk Share Server provider (client) on the same computer as Microsoft Exchange. Small Business Server includes a cut-down version of Exchange so this also applies herewith.

The implementation of MAPI on an Exchange server is different from that of a non-Exchange server. The MSMAPI.DLL on an Exchange server is not compatible with Softalk Share Server.

The Softalk Share Server server may be installed on such a computer however, the provider (client) should not.
