Hi all,

My company is helping out a local school that's had to close by hosting it's peachtree accoutning software on our servers - with the intent that we give terminal server access to the software to the few people that still need it for the next few months.  I installed the software through the control panel, logged in as admin.  It runs perfectly for the admin user, but gives the following error anytime anyone else tries to run it:
"Peachtree could not detect the status of the peachtree.ini file".

i googled around, and it seems there's some registry entries that were advised to add to mess with the compatability checks, but those registry entries were for a 2003 server, not a 64 bit 2008 - so i'm hesiitant to do them.  Link to what i'm talking about here:
(3rd post)

For reference - software = peachtree premium 2005 accounting.  Server = windows server 2008 64 bit with terminal services enabled and users coming from AD.

Anyone have any ideas?  please help!
