Server Core-specific installation guide

The Server Core edition of Exchange Rules Pro is designed specifically for the Server Core version of Windows Server. Since this version does not include graphical user interface, you need to install the basic components of CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro using a dedicated msi setup file via Command Prompt (cmd). To manage the program, you need to install CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro Administration Panel from the standard exe setup file on any client machine connected to the Exchange Server, following the standard installation guide.

For detailed installation guide on the Server Core, visit Deployment on Server Core.

Standard installation guide

Follow these simple steps to install CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro.


Download or copy the installer to each server with the Hub Transport role (Exchange 2007 or 2010) or Hub Transport service (Exchange 2013 or 2016).


The installer contains two modules: Exchange Rules Pro Service and Exchange Rules Pro Administration Panel. Begin with installing the Exchange Rules Pro Service on each of the Hub Transport servers (Mailbox servers, if running Exchange 2013/2016).

Note! During the installation the Microsoft Exchange Transport service is restarted.


To be able to create and edit the rules, you need to install the Administration Panel. We recommend that you install it on a workstation. It can be located in the same domain as the Exchange Rules Pro Service, or outside of it. Download or copy the installer to the chosen PC and run the installation of Exchange Rules PRO Administration Panel.


After the installation a short application tour will launch. Take a look at the hints we have prepared for you and proceed to creating your first email rules!
