Terminal server 2003 user profiles

Hello,
I've got a strange problem, i installed sbs2008 premium on a new ml350.
On my old server i have installed windows server 2003  R2 SP2.
This one is configured as a terminal server.

Previous for the new installation the old server was a dc and ts in one.
After installing in from scratch, i have problems with the users settings.
After i install a program as administrator, i have to install it again for each user that logs on to the terminal server.
Also all the settings i have to configure, for each user?

When i installed the software i didn't set the parameter change user / install.
Is ther a way to change it, so when i install software en configure the settings. that it applies for all users?

This will cause an issue with Certain Programs only which require the user to have admin or power user privileges on that machine. You can set it locally to avoid giving the user admin access across the domain.

Then it depends on the software, for example Microsoft Office. Each user has to complete the final steps before Using Office. Also Each user will have to setup Outlook according to his/her preferences.

Which software are we talking about?

I think there is something wrong in tse and not the software.

To eliminate whether it is an issue with the software or TS, try something simple like Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Install it as an admin, then log on using different profiles, you will be able to use it on all profiles, except each user has to agree to the license agreement.

Do you get any specific option asking whether or not the program should be able available to all users during setup?
