Install QuickBooks on a Terminal Server

ONLY QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions 10.0 and newer is supported in this environment (with limitations). QuickBooks technical support does not provide support for the following:

  • Setting up, configuring, or enabling terminal services.
  • Enabling clients to connect to the server.
  • Setting up user permissions for server connections.
  • Issues with terminal server connections (for example, connecting to the server or dropping connection).
  • Latency or slow performance issues.

Note: Terminal Services is a feature of Windows Server Operating Systems. We recommend researching Terminal Services or engaging a Windows Server professional before making changes in such an environment. Resources on the Microsoft web site may be helpful, such as Install Programs on a Terminal Server (Windows Server 2008).
