Hello all,
I have a client that I have to setup for terminal services on a Windows 2003 server.  All users (5 at a maximum) will be connecting via Terminal Services and will need to run Quickbooks.  
Can regular Quickbooks 2011 Professional work on a server like this or do I have to purchase Quickbooks Enterprise?
Thanks.

Check with Intuit first, but my experience with QuickBooks Pro is that it does not run well in Terminal Services and is not supported. But I know that some users have gotten Enterprise to run in Terminal Services (and still had some problems). So do ask Intuit.

My own counsel for 5 users is to put the ledger on a server and run QuickBooks on the local workstations. That may not suit your needs and I understand that. ... Thinkpads_User

nice ...

for the terminal server

terminal server licences are concorrent user licences... u can chose either per user as well as per client when u install terminal server licence.

about the quickbook u can access any kind of application ... the condition is it shoud work on a pc / server.

the licencing is the different issue... some applications having terminal client licences.... ( i.e ms office ) . to work on terminal server.


all the best
