Is it necessary to have Micrososft Expression Media Encoder installed while testing the Media Encoder Service???? Because it is not told in the Installation documentation to install the Expression Encoder until the "Testing the Media Encoder Service and Silverlight Player" step.

Yes, the Microsoft Expression Encoder 2 and its service pack are required for the Media Encoder Service. It is mentioned as one of the prerequisites in the Platform Prerequisites section of the Installation and Configuration guide.
