I've been told that it is possible to install Quickbooks 2009 on a Windows 2008 Terminal Server.  I need this install to work in multi-user mode.

I have attempted to install already, but when I try to open a company file QB tells me that I must be an administrator to start the QB DB service.  Problem is that when I am doing this, I am logged on as the administrator for this machine.  I have searched for this solution for a while, but I can't find any instructions specific to 2009, and I can find no references to multi-user mode.  I don't think this would be a problem if I were simply having one person access the DB, but Unfortunately, I have two.

Any help would be appreciated

What  I have read here is that the QuickBooks 2009 Server application does not run on Server 2008. I called Intuit and they are working on it but no time frame as yet. I have one client where we are putting off Server 2008 because of this. ... Thinkpads_User

I should note that I am running Windows 2008 in a Parallels Server VM on a Apple xServe.  I think I am going to create a separate dedicated VM running Windows XP to host the QB Database server piece.  Then I will install only the client piece on the Windows 2008 TS.  

I would still like other ideas incase this doesn't work.  

Thanks
