I've reloaded Access 2003 on my Terminal Server.

As a member of the Domain Administrators group, I can launch Access.
As a Terminal Server user, it will not launch unless I Run As Administrator.

Can someone tell me what I'm missing here?

Many Thanks

It potentially points to a permissions issue, in the absence of anything in the logs it would be my first check

use something like filemon to check what the application is trying to access in either the registry, or file system which it cant as a user.

I'm not sure about permissions.

Here is my procedure. Am I missing something?

Logged in as Domain Admin at the console.

Used Fixit to clean out office install.  BTW, I only have the problem with Access.  I am only installing Access at this time because I am upgrading Office to 2007 (leaving Access as 2003)

Change User /Install
Install MSO2003 from Add/Remove Programs.
Install SP3 from Add/Remove

Launch Access.
Windows Installer kicks in.
Launch Access again - Windows Installer kicks in.

Just for kicks, Logon as user - Access tries to launch (from task manager).  the access process terminates immediately with no entry in the error log.

Thanks
