We are running a Windows 2003 R2 32 Bit terminal server with Microsoft Office 2003.  We want to upgrade to Microsoft Office 2007.  Is there any known issues with upgrading the Office Suite and Terminal Services?

One thing to note - You will NEED the Volume License version of Office 2007 to properly install it on a terminal server.  Other than that, I wouldn't expect problems.

Besides making sure you have a Volume license, it would be best to completely uninstall 2003, reboot, then install 2007.  Don't install over the top in a terminal server environment.

Make sure you execute the change user /install from a cmd prompt

I recently upgraded our staff from 2003 to 2007 in a TS environment and had no probs (don't forget to install latest service pack etc and defrag afterwards)
