Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007 setup cannot continue because the local computer is running Microsoft Windows Server ™ 2003, Web Edition.

Exchange 2007 setup requires you install Microsoft Exchange to a computer that runs on a supported operating system.

To resolve this issue, install Microsoft Exchange to a non-Web Edition of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or later.
