I am installing the First Exchange Server into my domain. This is a test lab with no previous Exchange installs. I am onto a fresh 2008 R2 server with all the Windows Updates done. I am using the SP1 installer.
Going through the installer prerequisites, it complains the server needs the following: KB982867, KB979744, KB983444 and KB977020. These all seem to be "hotfixes". Is this for real? All are related to various versions of .NET. Why are these not rolled up into a service pack of the .Net? Am I missing something? This is going to be a real pain in deployment not getting these from the regular updates.
