Detect if running in terminal server session

Is it possible to detect whether my application is running within a Terminal
Server session or not?

I'd like to automatically switch off some of my graphics rendering under
this environment as they can be quite slow to transfer over a terminal
server session. The graphics should still be displayed when running directly
on a local session.

Thanks,

Hi All, Coding in C#.Net 2.0 A requirement of my app is that certain functions should not be allowed to execute if excel is running. The app is used in terminal server sessions so checking if "excel.exe" is run by current username is not good enough. I need to determine if the session running my app, is also running excel.
