We're considering purchasing Acrobat Prof'l 8.  Since we're a nonprofit, we get a good discount, but have to download the software from the site (no cds).  I'm trying to figure out if this will work okay on a terminal server.  I looked at this document -- http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/acrobat/WTS.pdf -- and am wondering what this means --> "Issue #1123402: Any Acrobat product with activation (for
not work in a Citrix or WTS environment. You must use contain activation) in a Citrix or WTS environment."  If it does work, do we buy 1 license to load on the server & only 1 client can access it at a time?  Or, are we better off buying several copies & loading it directly on the clients?

You need to buy the multi-user license kit.  That gives you a special serial # you enter that allows multiple users on one server to use one copy of Acrobat 8.  There is NO difference in the installation, just the serial # is special.

I forgot to mention, I have Acrobat 7 Std and Pro running on several MS Terminal Servers with no problems.

Ok, thanks.  Not sure what we'll do because the nonprofit place we buy from doesn't sell mutli-user license kits??  I'm assuming that's bought separately from the software, right?  Software for a single desktop is $45.

I would call a CDW rep and ask them for a quote.  That is where I get all my Adobe multi-user licensing from.
