            TATEMS Installing on Terminal Services/Remote Desktop Services or Citrix for Remote Access

            For Terminal Services aka Remote Desktop Service do a Full Install 
            Logged as Administrator and using Add/Remove Programs or the 
            Terminal Service aka Remote Desktop Services- Application
            installer to navigate to the setup file called:

            tatemsmsi.exe on the CD or download.

            When TATEMS is installed on Terminal Services aka Remote Desktop Services
            or Citrix only one person at a time can access via remote access.

            If you need to let more than one person at a time use TATEMS via
            remote access then each additional simultaneous user will be required
            to have their own license.

            Here is the work around to let more than one person at a time have
            access to TATEMS.

            After the install is finished...

            Create a sub folder for each user that will log in to use TATEMS
            in this folder

            C:\Program Files\TATEMS 2005 
            (or in C:\Program Files (x86)\TATEMS 2005 on 64bit)

            For Example for you might use

            C:\Program Files\TATEMS 2005\Scott

            copy this file


            in the

            C:\Program Files\TATEMS 2005

            folder to each users sub-folder folder
            ( EXAMPLE: C:\Program Files\TATEMS 2005\Scott ).

            Then log in as each user and send a shortcut to the desktop for that
            file in the corresponding folder that matches the user name.

            You can use the wrench.ico as the icon for the shortcut you create.

            Then use the shortcut you create instead of the one created by the

            You can delete or hide or move the one created by the installer.

            Whenever you do an update you will need to copy TATEMS2005.mde to each
            of the users sub-folders. You can create an Xcopy batch file to do the
            job for you. 

            You will need to own a separate license for each different user when
            logged in to terminal services or Citrix server in this configuration.

            And use the link below to see how to setup TATEMS as a RemoteApp for
            multiple users so that you only give your users access to TATEMS and
            not to an entire desktop on the Terminal Services Server:
