Hi everyone. I have a standard windows 2003 server with terminal services installed. I installed a standard copy of Office 2007 Professional. Whenever I tried to open up a word or excel doc, the program opens but then I get a message saying "This copy of Microsofft Excel cannot be used on Terminal Server".

So where am I going wrong?

You're going wrong with the Office version you're trying to install. Office 2007 *has* to be a Volume Licensing version to be installed on a terminal server.
