We are currently running an old version of Citrix and I would like to replace it with Terminal Services.

We do not need remote desktop though and all we are using is Citrix ability to run an application on the server that looks like it is running locally.

I think Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services can do that but I am not sure really where to start?

You can only have your Seamless Applications when using Citrix, sorry. Server 2003 (or Windows 2000) Terminal Services by themselves only support a connection to the desktop. If you want anything more fancy than that, you need Citrix.

Thank you.  That is kind of what I was coming to understand.
