office std & pro on terminal server

Posted on 2005-05-09

I have a quick question, can I install both Standard & Professional versions of Office 2003 on a Terminal Server 2003 ?

Alternatively, if I just installed Office Pro, how could I restrict some users from being able to use the applications that I don't want them to be able to play with (ie. thats why I am wanting to install Standard). Specifically I don't want them to be able to create Windows Rights Managed documents or to be able to use MS Access.

While I'm asking questions, does anyone know if MS licensing supports this type of deployment ?

Max points as I'm hoping for a quick & concise answer. Thanks.

    I would just change the NTFS permissions on Access.  Create a group "Access Users" and assign them rights to run Access, removing "domain users" from being able to access it.

    But I don't believe you can have both on the same system.

    ok, thanks. Even if you could, it would seem that even if it was possible it would be both "not recommended" and "unsupported" by MS.
