Managing Exchange Server 2007 using a Windows XP workstation
Some administrators don’t like to use Terminal Services sessions to manage their Exchange Server environment. In this article we’re going to see how to install the Exchange Management Tools on a workstation running Windows XP 32bit.
At the moment, there is no support for installing Exchange Management Tools on Windows Vista. If you are running Windows Vista, you should wait for the release of Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1.
If you’re running a Windows XP x64 bit, you can follow this document but you should use x64 Tools and hotfixes. In this article we’re going to show how this is done in a Windows XP 32bit machine.

Install IIS Common Core files on the workstation
Install .NET Framework 2.0
Install a hotfix for .NET Framework 2.0
Install the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) 3.0
Install Windows PowerShell
