I am trying to install a program (Sage 50) on my SBS 2011 machine but get the error that I must be in Install mode not Execute mode, and to give the command
CHANGE USER /INSTALL
but when I give this command, I get the error
"Install mode does not apply to a Remote Desktop Session Host server configured for remote installation."

I was able to uninstall the program with error, but now I can not reinstall it!

SBS cannot be used as a remote desktop server, which is why you can't change modes, which is why you cannot install Sage. You'll need  second server.

That's not the answer I wanted to hear, but I guess it is what it is :) Thank you for the quick response.

FWIW, since posting this question I have installed LogMeIn on the server (which I could do remotely) and then used that connection to run the Sage50 install, which appears to be working.
