Quickbooks 2005 via Terminal Services

I am trying to set-up QuickBooks 2005 to be used via terminal services, however when a user attempts to open QuickBooks, I receive a message stating that either power user or administrator rights is required.  Granting a user administrative rights certainly makes the program work, but is unacceptable otherwise.  I found the following post that recomends a work-around:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Windows_Server_2003/Q_20885839.html?query=Terminal+Services+Quickbooks&clearTAFilter=true  However it seems to apply to version 2004, not 2005.  Does anyone know of a workaround to make the 2005 version of Quickboks run sucessfully on Terminal Services?

Susan Bradley has documented setting this up for standalone machines and via group policy.

Right click on the QB icon in default user and select the checkbox under compatibility to "allow non-administrators" to run this program.  Every TS or Citrix user will then have the correct settings to launch QB.
