Different IE version for Terminal Server users?

We have a Win2008 Windows terminal server with a bunch of users.  A couple of users runs a web based temperature control web application that requires a specific version of Java, and other users need a newer version of IE.
Can I have different version of IE running on the same terminal server?

MED-V is indeed a VM. Period. That means you CANNOT run this on a TS. Simple as that.
Regarding Java, with RDS CALs you get the App-V licenses included. That means you can use App-V to virtualize Java so different users on the same TS/RDS can indeed run different versions of Java on a per application basis actually (same user can run three apps all with three different Java versions).
IE, there is no way around it at the OS level.
What can be done is use something like Browsium Ion/Catalyst. That will allow you to tackle the different IE versions requirement.

Your best solution is to virtualize IE so that you can publish various versions to the terminal server.

Sounds like it's still running virtual machines on the same hardware?

It is not a seperate virtual machine, but a virtual application.  Allows you to contain all application files, settings, registry entries, dlls, within a virtual package so that these DLL's and settings do not interfere with the base VM.

The document talks about using MED-V, WinXP mode and Terminal Services.  We are already using Terminal Services.  Isn't WinXP a virtual machine?

No, it is an operating system.  Give IETester a try to see if it meets your needs. It is a seperate browser that allows you to have the rendering and javascript engines of IE10, IE9, IE8, IE7 IE 6 and IE5.5 - users can pick their IE version on the fly.

There is no solution for me but since this thread has been opened for so long, I'm closing it.

Thank you all for the help.
