My apologies for the delay in responding;

There are several applications that exhibit problems when running under application terminal services. The one in particular is Mavis Beacon (network version) however, my question is more general.

Can anyone tell me how best to determine if an application will run in the Terminal Application Server environment?  Is there a quick way to validate product stability?

Additionally, can anyone recommend some freeware tools that will emulate multi-user concurrent user access?   The intent here is to test a specific product that is being concurrently run by N users under ATS.

Any help or a direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Sorry fo the Delay

The quickest way to test if an application will run in a TS session is to check if there are user based settings in HKLM or users based configuration files in the Local Program installation directory or under the system folders.  many legacy application ignored MS best practice in how and where it be installed to.

Business Objects was one of these instances, (it better now) Cognos Impromptu is another case in point, ( this is still a badly behaved applicatgion).
Forced accept.
