I can't install Office 97 SR2 on Terminal Server.

A. If when you try and install Office 97 SR2 on a terminal server via the Add/Remove Programs control panel applet you get the error:

"Setup cannot register MSJET35.dll in the system registry because an older version is in use. Close all applications and try again"

this is because the Terminal Server License Service is using the file. To workaround this stop the licensing service

C:\> net stop "terminal server licensing"

Click Retry on the error dialog and install will continue.

Once installation is complete restart the service

C:\> net start "terminal server licensing"

Office 97 has now been installed for use by all your terminal server clients.
