Installing Applications on a Terminal Server

Because of the Sophos issues that many of my clients experienced, many endpoints required a re-installation, particularly on Terminal Servers. This is a quick and easy reminder of best practices for installing applications on a terminal server.

  1. Log on to the server as a domain administrator
  2. Open up command prompt and type the following command
    change user /install
  3. Your session will now be ready to install applications that will work across all user profiles.
  4. Install the application required e.g. Microsoft Office
  5. Once you have finished the install open up command prompt again and type in
    change user /execute
