Outlook 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2

Hi,

We are getting the attached error.
As we know this is because the retail version of outlook cannot run on terminal services and we must get a volume licence etc.
What we want to do is remove terminal services licencing so we can use the standard RDP as if you were connecting to a networked workstation and then use the copy of Outlook.
Any ideas on how we can go about removing the licences so that we can run it this way?

Thanks

I have not tried it, but maybe you can open outlook, go to help and change the SN there?
Or open command prompt and use slmgr.vbs to remove it.
"slmgr.vbs /?" and use appropriate switch

Sorry, misread the question.
Here's the procedure to do it


To uninstall (remove) the Terminal Server role service

1.Open Server Manager. To open Server Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
2.In the left pane, expand Roles.
3.Right-click Terminal Services, and then click Remove Role Services.
4.On the Select Role Services page, clear the Terminal Server check box, and then click Next.
5.On the Confirm Removal Selections page, click Remove.
6.On the Removal Progress page, removal progress will be noted.
7.On the Removal Results page, you are prompted to restart the server to finish the removal process. Click Close, and then click Yes to restart the server.
8.If you are prompted that other programs are still running, do either of the following:
• To close the programs manually and restart the server later, click Cancel.
• To automatically close the programs and restart the server, click Restart now.
9.After the server restarts and you log on to the computer, the remaining steps of the removal process will finish. When the Removal Results page appears, confirm that the removal of Terminal Server succeeded.

You can also confirm that Terminal Server is removed by following these steps:
a. Start Server Manager.
b. Under Roles Summary, click Terminal Services.
c. Under Role Services, confirm that Terminal Server has a status of Not Installed.
