Installing software over RDp connection
Posted on 2007-12-02
I'm setting up a SBS2003 R2 Sp2 for a small non-profit organisation.
Most of their users will log in over teh internet using RDP.
They will be using Outlook and Access 2003.
When they log on, and try to open Ol for the first time, the installer tries to run. It ends with
"The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur
if you are running Windows in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer is not
correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."
Googling learned me that the installer does not run over RDp connections.
Is there a work-around for this problem? It's almost impossible to ask those users to come to the server and login locally....
