Thanks for your post and Russ' input.
Yes, you can check the Event log for more error information. If the issue also occurs when you try to run other SBS wizard, as a work round, you may try to turn off DEP over these wizard applications.
- Accessed DEP (Data Execution Prevention) via >> My Computer properties >> advanced tab >> Performance Options >> Settings >> Data Execution Prevention Tab
- Option already Selected: "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except for those I select."
- Added the problematic application "addusr.exe" (which is under C:\Program files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Administration\ folder)in the list.
Now try to add user via Add user Wizard via Server Management to check the issue.
Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is a set of hardware and software technologies that perform additional checks on memory to help prevent malicious code from running on
a system. In Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005,Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1, DEP is enforced by
hardware and by software.
The primary benefit of DEP is to help prevent code execution from data pages. Typically, code is not executed from the default heap and the stack. Hardware-enforced DEP detects code that is running
from these locations and raises an exception when execution occurs. Software-enforced DEP can help prevent malicious code from taking advantage of exception-handling mechanisms in Windows.
