When you try to start a Microsoft 2007 Office program within a Terminal Server client session, you may receive the following error message:

This copy of Microsoft Office Program cannot be used on Terminal Server. Please contact your local authorized Microsoft retailer for more information.

Additionally, the 2007 Office program closes unexpectedly.


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.
