CAD 2009 x64 Running on W2K8 x64 Terminal Server or XenApps


I was hoping to install CAD 09 x64 on my W2K8 x64 running Xenapps or Terminal server. I know this is not a supported setup but I was wondering if anyone out there has successfully managed to set it up? I get an error - 1603 when I install CAD 09 in Xenapps.

Looking at the Autodesk forums, it seems that installing the product on any server with Terminal Services installed causes this error.

Found this:


You want to know if a hosted operating system is a supported environment for AutodeskĀ® software.


AutodeskĀ® products are not supported on hosted operating systems. Common hosted operating systems include:

Citrix MetaFrame application server software
Windows terminal services


Looks like they are preventing the software from installing in an unsupported configuration.
