I have installed Microsoft Office 2007 on our Windwos 2008 Terminal Server by going to Start, Control Panel and Install Application on Terminal Server.  The installation completed successfully.

When I try to open up Excel, Word or Outlook I receive a message saying "This feature is not available.  For more information, please contact your system administrator".

Can anyone advise me how I can resolve this ?

Many thanks in advance

Did you install a Volume Licensing version of Office 2007? If not, then that's the problem. Only the Volume Licensing versions of Office 2007 will run on a terminal server.

Hi oBdA,

Thanks for your post

The version I installed was one that came with the Microsoft Action pack so not sure if it was Volume Licensing code but suspect it isn't

That is definitely not a VL version. Your error message is slightly different, but here's the KB article about it:
