Remarks

You should not rely upon only the 0x00000001 flag to determine whether Small Business Server has been installed on the system, as both this flag and the 0x00000020 flag are set when this product suite is installed. If you upgrade this installation to Windows Server, Standard Edition, the 0x00000020 flag will be cleared however, the 0x00000001 flag will remain set. In this case, this indicates that Small Business Server was once installed on this system. If this installation is further upgraded to Windows Server, Enterprise Edition, the 0x00000001 flag will remain set.
