In addition, if you don't want to install the GUI component of ABE on all your file servers, you can install it on a test server and then copy the abecmd.exe file from your %SystemRoot%\system32 directory into the same directory on your file servers. Or optionally, if you only want the GUI component of ABE on your file servers and not the command-line tool, you can copy the abeui.dll file from the %SystemRoot%\system directory your test server to the same directory on your file servers and then register the dll by running the command regsvr32.exe %SystemRoot%\system32\abeui.dll on each file server. Don't forget that this only works on Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2003 SP1 servers.
