Terminal Service

Hi..
I installed Terminal Service on the server and on the clients to run application...working ok.
Now when i try to install any software like office2000  or backup or... a Terminal Server Install Failure message appears saying:
A terminal server must be in install mode before you can install a program. When you use Add/Remove Programs in the control Panel to install a program, this automatically puts a terminal server in install mode.

so if you click ok..nothing happens... if you click on Add/Remove Program.. also nothing happens.
Still I can't install any software on the server.
Note: the server is Domain Controller and logged in as Administrator.
Please advice.
Thanks.

I suggest you manually place the TS into install mode using this command:
C:\> change user /install

To change back to execute mode use:
C:\> change user /execute

And to check you current mode use:
C:\> change user /query

I hope this helps

Somebody told me that this terminal message is normal.. and whenever you want to install any program, you have to go to Add/Remove program screen and install your software by clicking Add new program...
