I have sever exe files that user click to access an inventory database that works with Windows 2003 Terminal Server but it will not work with Windows 2008 64 bit Terminal server even if I change the .PIF shortcut compatibility mode. I thought 32 bit applications should work, does anyone know a work around to get old Windows DOS applications to work on Windows 2008 64 Bit Terminal Server.
