- Updated script to install Exchange 2010 prerequisites
I have made a couple of minor updates to the prerequisite installation script. One is changing the way the source directory is determined. Instead of hardcoding the directory, the directory that the script is running from will be used. This allows you to simply put all files in the same directory as the script and run it from anywhere (except for UNC).
Another change is a correction when checking for installation binaries. I failed to account for the backslash between the directory and the filename so, even when the file exists, the script wouldn’t see it.
The last change is moving the NETTCPPortSharing service setting after the Windows components installation completes so that the setting is immediately configured. This allows you to begin the Exchange installation without rebooting.
The download and inline code from the original post have been updated.
