  • What’s in the Desktop Experience Feature?

    The Desktop Experience feature includes the following Windows Vista components and features:

    Windows Calendar

    Windows Mail

    Windows Media Player

    Windows Aero and other desktop themes

    Video for Windows (AVI support)

    Windows Photo Gallery

    Windows SideShow

    Windows Defender

    Disk Cleanup

    Sync Center

    Character Map


    How to install Desktop Experience?


    1. Open Server Manager: click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and click Server Manager.

    2. In the Features Summary section, click Add features.

    3. Select the Desktop Experience check box, and then click Next. and then click Install.

    You need to install the Desktop Experience Feature.

    Once you have done that you will encounter an error stating you need Windows 2003 or 2008. You’ll need to edit the ocscore.msi with orca and delete the conditional install entry for windows 2008
