Cannot Install Microsoft Office Pro Plus 2007 on a Terminal Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a VL and I'm trying to install Office Pro Plus 2007 on a Terminal Server (Server Standard 2003 R2). Everything goes through but when I open one of the programs the message comes up saying that this copy of office cannot be installed on a terminal server. Any ideas?

  • Hi,

    You can check this kb, which describes the issue you met with:


    This issue occurs when a retail edition, a trial edition, a pre-installed edition (PIPC), or an OEM edition of a 2007 Office program or suite is installed on a Terminal Server computer. Terminal Server does not support the installation of these editions of 2007 Office programs or suites.


    To resolve this issue, remove these editions of the 2007 Office suite or program from the Terminal Server computer. Then, install an edition that uses a Volume License Key with the 2007 Office suite or a program that does not require License Activation.


    I see you own the VL, but you also need use the Volume Licese version Office to install.
