Peachtree 2010 on SBS 2003

I'm having the same problem. The server is setup for admin TS. You dont have the change user mode when in admin ts. When I try to run the setup from console, rdp, log me in I get the same error on all of them.

Have you tried running setup directly from the \peachw\install\ directory instead of the autorun one?

I had to setup my server for terminal services (just let it run in 120 day trial mode so you don't have to specify a license server), reboot, install Peachtree, and turn terminal services back to admin mode.

Poorly written installation package.

I do not think SBS allows you to install Terminal Services at all.

Yes I did run from the install folder. Wow I hope I dont have to install terminal services on this server. I think that is going to be the solution. I agree a poor package. It has been my experiance that every year we have problems with PeachTree.

It shouldn't really cause you any grief, except the reboot, just go into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Add/Remove Windows Features turn on Terminal Services, reboot, install Peachtree, et voila!

"I do not think SBS allows you to install Terminal Services at all."

Ooh...I didn't see that comment.  Perhaps you need to disable remote access and install it at the phsyical console.

The reboot is the problem. They never stop working. Ok I only see term lic. on this SBS. I have never installed on SBS before. I have many standard servers. Is it in a different place?

 Can I run Terminal Services in Application Server mode on SBS 2003 R2?
 
A. No. It is not possible to run Terminal Services in Application Server mode on SBS 2003 R2. Running Terminal Services in Application Server mode on a domain controller presents a potential security risk to your network and so application mode is disabled. If you want to use Terminal Services in Application Server mode, we recommend that you purchase an additional Windows Server 2003 license and install an additional server running Windows Server into the SBS 2003 R2 domain. You could also run Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 on SBS 2003 R2 and then run Windows Server 2003 in terminal services mode within Virtual Server. See the

Well I finally got an answer. I dont like the answer. This is from Sage.

NOTE: Due to limitations within the Terminal Services portion of the Windows Small Business Server 2003 Operating System, Peachtree will not operate as Multi-User in this environment

Actually I had the same issue, hate to say it but Sage support is worthless, while you cannot operate Peachtree on the server via Terminal Services, you can install it (via the console or remotely using Dameware or another nonRDP method) to use it as a centralized server, just install it via the console and choose server only. Just an FYI to whomever comes across this. And yes, SBS does allow terminal server installation (As stated above) in admin mode only.
