What permissions do I need to install the Windows 2000 Server Terminal Services client on Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP?

A. Windows 2003 and XP both ship with the Remote Desktop Connection software, which is the latest Terminal Services client. However, there might be times when you want to use a previous version of the client. To be able to install previous versions of the client, you must be a local administrator or have Write and Modify permissions on the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing\Store\MSLicensing registry value.
