  3. On the Communications Server 2010 (Beta Refresh) Installation Location page, click OK.

  4. On the End User License Agreement page, review the license terms, select I accept the terms in the license agreement, and then click OK. This step is required before you can continue.

  5. On the Deployment Wizard page, click Install or Update Communications Server System.

  6. On the Communications Server 2010 (Beta Refresh) page, next to Step1: Install Local Configuration Store, click Run.
