OCS 2007 R2 – Deploy Server Wizard Has Failed

Recently I was doing an installation of OCS 2007 R2 Standard and I got this message when running the installation wizard:

OCSError1

In the log I found the following error message:

Failure
[0xC3EC796C] One or more errors occurred during execution of the wizard; the wizard was unable to complete successfully. Please check the log file for more information.

OCSError2

And when looking a bit further, following the link provided in the first message i found this error message:

Failure
[0xC3EC78D8] Failed to read the Office Communications Server version information. This can happen if the computer clock is not set to correct date and time.
