The Microsoft® Exchange Server Analyzer Tool queries the CIM_Datafile Microsoft Windows® Management Instrumentation (WMI) class to determine the value of the Version key for several core Exchange binary files:
Gapi32.dll (checked in the System32 folder and the \Exchsrvr\bin folder)
Mapi32.dll (checked in the System32 folder and the \Exchsrvr\bin folder)
If the Exchange Server Analyzer finds the Version value for any of the above files less than the Exchange Server Version value, a warning is displayed. An earlier version number indicates that out-of-date files may be in use.
To remedy this error, install the latest service pack or update rollup for your version of Exchange. If this error persists, run Exchange 2000 Server or Exchange Server 2003 Setup and select Re-install. Running Setup in Re-install mode installs only binary files. It does not remove or reset any user data or configuration data. If you reinstall Exchange Server, you must also reinstall any Exchange service packs or hotfixes that were installed.
To reinstall Exchange 2000 Server or Exchange Server 2003
Log on to the server on which you want to reinstall Exchange. Insert the Exchange 2000 Server or Exchange Server 2003 CD into your CD-ROM drive.
On the Start menu, click Run, and then type <drive>:\setup\i386\setup, where <drive> is your CD-ROM drive.
On the Welcome to the Microsoft Exchange Installation Wizard page, click Next.
On the License Agreement page, read the agreement. If you agree to the terms, click I agree, and then click Next.
On the Product Identification page, type your 25-digit product key, and then click Next.
On the Component Selection page, in the Action column, use the drop-down arrow next to the Microsoft Exchange node, and select Re-install, and then click Next.
