Hi, I'm looking for a program to turn Windows 8 or 7 into an Application Server/Terminal Server.  In the past I used XP unlimited or Elusiva, both are out of business.

Is there such a thing? or do I need to use server and make one there, I really didn't want to that, the users like using 7 or 8 better.

Thanks guys.

It has always been illegal to do that, which is why those companies go out of business. They usually get sued out of business. Stay legal and set up a real RDS server with CALs. When you install the desktop experience role, the GUI is virtually identical to the client version of the OS so the "users like 7 or 8 better" simply isn't an issue.
