You`d better know if Standard versoin allows you to upgrade to Enterprise or 
not. It seems you only can upgrade to Standard or Enterprise from Exchange 5.5.

Subject: Enterprise upgrade?!?


   My company has a license for Exchange 2000 Enterprise.  When we installed, 
the only installation media we had was not the Enterprise version of Exchange.  
Upon realizing this (we didn't know we had Enterprise licensed), we realized we 
needed to upgrade.  We have been holding off until we received the correct 

   Now comes the question.  When I insert the Exchange 2000 Enterprise media 
into the CD-ROM drive, the AUTORUN kicks up, and I am prompted to install 
Exchange 2000 Enterprise.  I choose this option, accept the terms and 
conditions, and then enter in the CD KEY.  Upon entering the CD KEY, I am then 
forced into a component selection window.  The top-level only has two options, 
"---" and "none".  I am not prompted to upgrade, nor can I select sub 
components for upgrade.  I can not continue as the "Back" button has been 
deactivated.  Is there something special I have to do to install this version 
of Exchange?

   The current setup is Exchange 2000 (Standard), with SP2, and Windows 2000 
Server, with SP2.  On the machine I also have Symantec's AntiVirus for 
Microsoft Exchange 2.5.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
