Hi,

Does anyone have experience of running Access 2003 runtime over terminal server.  Are there any issues with doing this?  I'm guessing that if I just had access 2003 on the terminal server I would need an Access 2003 licence for each conecting user or am I wrong?

Thanks

I use 2000 on a term server. I have a runtime version on the server that runs my .mde  The only issues I run into on occasion is it's slow...but that is a network issue. I keep the client (.mde) on the term server and the BE on a shared network drive.

Thanks J.  So am I correct in the assumption that each connecting user would need an Access 2003 license if I didn't use access runtime but that if I use access runtime there's no cost (except for the developer ediition)?

That's correct, a shared runtime liscense is what we use. Using runtime also protects us from having users opening the database to do any kind of form or report editing and the .mde protects the code. They can still run queries, work in forms and manage data.

>form or report editing and the .mde protects the code
The mde will also protect the forms and reports.  However, tables and querys are a whole different kettle of fish ;-)
