Getting Office 2007 to run on terminal Server 2003

Hi there,

Weve been used to installing a copy of office 2003 on a terminal server so when clients log in they can use outlook, word, etc.  However today weve tried to install office 2007 for the first time and it blocked the first 'normal' version, it then let us install office enterprise version but then wouldnt run.

My question is, How do we get office 2007 on a terminal server so 5 remote users can log on independantly and use it?

We arnt looking for anything illegal (although if theres a grey area fix, or loophole we dont mind ;))

we just need it to work, as our clients are going back to the stated next week and we need this to work! :) :)

Really grateful to any ideas

You'll need a Volume Licensing version of Office 2007 to install on a terminal server, OEM/retail versions won't work; no grey area, no loopholes.
Error message when you try to start a 2007 Office program within a Terminal Server client session: "This copy of Microsoft Office <Program> cannot be used on Terminal Server"
