Just looking on the error message it seems that something was missing in the Windows Registry. I opened Registry Editor and browsed to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange. The Setup key was missing. Exchange 2007 management tools were installed to another server than Exchange Server was installed. I logged on the Exchange 2007 server, opened Registry Editor and browsed to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange key. The Setup folder was visible and I right-clicked on the Setup folder and exported the Setup branch.
I went back to my Exchange 2007 Management installed server and imported the reg file.
After importing the reg file my problem was solved and I had another challenge with Export-Mailbox cmdlet.
