Windowes Terminal Server and Office

Hi,

I currently have a request to put Office 2000 Pro on our terminal server that is running on Windowes 2000 Server.
I seem to remember reading that office is locked down for terminal server clients. Is this correct? or will every terminal server client connect be able to use this single version of office?

like wise, i've used office 97, 2000 and XP on Win2K terminal services without too many problems.

One thing to watch for...
if the users log on with a roaming profile, sometime desktop shortcuts point to their normal workstation.

I've found this a few times with Outlook shortcuts on the desktop

beasty1711... easiest way I find is to give each user two different profiles using there user properties, one for TS, one for normal stuff but does depend upon your environment I guess.

When you install Office XP for TS at least (only one I have done) there is an MST transformation file to install it with to adjust various functions to work better with TS. Shout if you can't find the details on MS or google.
