Hey all,

 I am trying to install a program on a terminal server drive but when I do it tells me the program doesnt have premission to log on as a administrator, now I have tried logging into the machine locally with the adminstrative account and I still get the same message then when I go to premission it tells me this has been shared for admin purposes the premissions cannot be set, I go to my sbs server and try to change it in shared folders and I still get the same error message. If anyone can please help how is a person supposed to install a program on this drive. Attached is a jpg with the error message from the program and also frm trying to change the premissions

I assume the application is eCopy?
If so many applications are not supported on Terminal services.

Q:Will eCopy Desktop work on Terminal Server or Citrix?
A: No, currently eCopy Desktop is not supported on Windows Terminal Server or Citrix.

You shouldn't have a problem with Office applications unless they are 2007. Office 2007 requires you must buy special volume licensing. If you have the appropriate license it won't be a problem.

The permissions issues are usually due to a application trying to write a registry key that is locked on a non-PC O/S which is by design.
A few applications may require you to put the server in install mode using:
change user  /install
to exit install mode:
change user  /execute

Yes open a command prompt/DOS window.
You have to do so when no one else is logged on as some files/keys may be locked if in use. Best to do so from the console, and to assure no one will log on while you are working run:
  change  logon  /disable
  change user  /install
    install your new application/s
  change user  /execute
  change  logon  /enable
