I am trying to install Citrix metaframe server 4.0 from the CD, I went to Add/Remove program in control panel then selected add new program and browsed to the cd and msi file and run it from there, but I get the message about Terminal server needs to in application mode. How to do that?
I tried from Add/remove windows component , selected terminal server but the details button is grayed out, I thought there was a way to do it from there but couldnot find a way.

FYI, I have terminal server installed on the same computer where I am trying to install citrix

any help?

    Try this:

    Go to Add/Remove Programs, then Add/Remove Windows Components. Go to terminal services, uncheck it, then check it again, then click Next, and make sure it's set to Application Server mode.

    Or do this:

    Before installing use this command in cmd:
    change user /install

    And after install, type this command:
    change user /execute

    When you install Terminal Services, you get the option to install it in Application Mode or Remote Administration Mode - in your case, it sounds like it's installed in Remote Administration Mode.  You need to uninstall Terminal Services, then reinstall it.

    failed to connect to preferred farm server
