The following steps explain how to install your QuickBooks Financial Software on a Terminal Server.
Note: While QuickBooks can run in a Terminal Server environment, only QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions is supported in this environment (with limitations). Enterprise Solutions support engineers do not provide support for the following:
- Setting up, configuring, or enabling terminal services.
- Enabling clients to connect to the server.
- User permission issues for server connections.
- Issues with terminal server connections (for example, connecting to the server or dropping connection).
- Latency or slow performance issues.
Note: Terminal Service 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.
