    Hi Guys,

    What is the best practice for putting Office onto a Terminal Server. Is it just a case of installing it as admin? or do you have to use the special files on an office disk?

    Not sure about best practice but I would install it as the local admin and don't forget to use a VLK ;)

    Do MS have a version of Office that can be installed on a terminal server? I tried installing a normal copy of MS Project and it told me that this version cannot be run on a terminal server.

    I seem to be remember being instructed to do it using option add software from within add/remove programs (win 2k3) rather than just running setup.exe directly.

    No idea why just something that sticks in my mind!

    Should be able to - small MS doc here, not sure what version of office you're using though, but i guess it wouldn't be much different - Clicky

    Go old school and type change user /install at the cmd prompt before install. change user /execute when you're done 8) Oh use the console session for rdp too because I've had a few problems installing software on a TS remotely. Jim
