Anyone Use Terminal Services for Deploying an App?

P: n/a
I'm in the frustrating process of trying to deploy an A2003 mde which
is a front end to an oracle server across several hospitals,
university environments and research facilities. The networking
protocols are such that our Oracle server won't allow a lot of the
users in so we're trying to deploy the app in a Terminal Services
environment.

Each user logs into the Terminal Service server - it's like remote
desktop. Am I right in assuming that I should make sure each user has
his/her own copy of the application just like in a multi-user network
environment? Like many apps, this application relies on creation of
querydefs specific to a user's choices on various input controls.
Does TS open a separate instance of the mde for each user so that this
is not a concern like it normally is in a multi-user environment?

Any comments on Access deployment on TS would be much appreciated -
thanks very much in advance.

Yes. The Auto FE Updater also works well with TS or Citrix.

You still have to give each user thier own copy of the FE MDE.

Note that you don't necessarily want to use the users Home directory to place the FE
MDE. The home directory might be on their local server thousands of miles from the
TS system thus negating all advantages of the TS. You may want to use a user FE
folder on the file server instead. Ideally would be the TS however the IT department
might not want you doing such.
