Hi,
I'm trying to install "Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (Windows 2000).  During the install I get the following message "Windows Terminal server needs to be in install mode to continue.  Click OK to continue if you are install mode, or click CANCEL to abort the installation."  

How do I turn on "install mode"

Thanks!

also, it just occurred to me that you can also install programs on a terminal server by uising the add/remove programs control panel applet. this automatically sets the mode to install during the installation and then back to execute at the end.

the above instructions are on how to use the manual process for changing the mode of a terminal server.

good luck!

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
