How to Put a Terminal Server Into the Install Mode

Save

A Microsoft Windows Terminal Services server must be switched to Install mode before programs can be added or removed. Once the Install mode is activated, there are no restrictions on adding or removing programs. After activation, the Terminal server must be returned to Execute mode. These two modes can be activated with a single command in the Windows Command Prompt available with the operating system by default.

  • Click the "Start" button and then click "Run."

  • Type "cmd" in the empty box and click "OK" to open the Command Prompt.

  • Type "change user /install" in the Command Prompt and press the Enter key to put the Terminal server into Install mode. A message will appear stating: "User session is ready to install applications," and you can now add or remove programs.

  • Type "change user /execute" and press the Enter key to return the Terminal server to Execute mode after you are done adding or removing software in the Install mode. A message will appear stating: "User session is ready to execute applications."

  • Type "exit" and press the Enter key to close the Command Prompt.
