When trying to join a machine to an SBS 2011 domain, I receive the following error message: "The Client Advisor program cannot run - client advisor encountered an error while checking computer requirements." This happens as soon as one of the buttons at the beginning is clicked, i.e. 'set up the computer for myself'.

The issue occurs on both Windows 7 Pro and Windows 8 Pro on two completely different machines, so it looks like there is a problem on the server.
I have also tried installing all Windows Updates on both operating systems.
The log files for the connect wizard just say 'Unknown error' or similar.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this, or where to start? I don't know what the connect wizard does technically behind the scenes besides joining the domain, so I'm a bit stuck here. I can successfully join the domain manually.
