How to fix sp1 breaking remote development on windows 2003 via FPSE??

P: n/a

Hello all,

I'm in the middle of setting up a windows 2003 server for

I have however been sucessful in setting up the server by installing
all the updates except sp1 and the server works fine.

Thanks in advance for any help.
