Cost savings are not an issue here. It is important to cut the products correctly. However, according to your description, the Acdrobat license on TS is a little different from MS Office applications and server CLIENT access licenses. Can someone explain to me the licensing structure of Acrobat on the Windows Terminal Server? I found the following article about deploying Acorbat on the termainal server. It has only been mentioned that Acrobat is licensed by desktop. Does this mean that I have to buy 10 licenses if we only have 2 users and use those 10 desktops to access Acrobat on the terminal server? According to MS, licensing ms desktop applications on TS, e.B. Office, is no different from licenses on desktop computers. You purchase an MS Office license for a desktop and that license is attached to the machine. Any user who signs in to this desktop, whether it`s a domain user or a local user, can use this copy of Office. If you want 10 MS Office users to access TS, you need to count the number of desktop computers, including laptops and thin clients, that they will access to the TS server. If all users share a workstation, purchase a license, if they access the server from 100 computers, buy 100 licenses.

So MS licenses its desktop application and it`s basically the same as the Acrobat license on TS. However, you should still purchase TS CALs and SERVER CALs separately, depending on your needs. As far as I know, neither MS nor Adobe provide their own tools to control/license on the TS server. Can you be more specific about the server and usage? Acrobat and Adobe Reader can be installed on a Windows Server terminal, but you must have a license for each simultaneous use of the product You must contact Adobe Sales for installation and licensing information. Do you think you want to use it as a server application? I don`t think there`s a licensing model with which you can do that. There is a server usage clause in the Acrobat XI EULA – see Section 2.1.7. 14.2.1 If you acquired the Software in Germany or Austria and have your habitual residence in that country, Section 8 does not apply, but Adobe`s legal liability for damages is limited, subject to the provisions of Section 14.2.2, as follows: (i) Adobe will only be liable up to the amount of damages generally foreseeable at the time of entering into the Purchase Agreement for damages, caused by a slightly negligent injury. a material contractual obligation and (ii) Adobe is not liable for damages caused by a slightly negligent breach of a non-essential contractual obligation. However, your description of Adobe licenses states that if users only access the TS from a fixed station (PC, laptop, or thin client), you can only purchase as many Acrobat licenses as there will be users who will supposedly use it, even though potentially all users have access to the application. It`s true? 14.3 Additional Terms for Pre-Release Products.

The Software may contain features and functionality (the “Document Features”) that appear to be disabled or “grayed out”. These document features are only enabled when you open a PDF document created with the appropriate activation technology available only from Adobe (“Key”).

You agree not to access or attempt to access disabled document features or to bypass permissions that control the activation of such document features. You can only use document features with PDF documents activated with keys purchased under a valid license from Adobe. Any other use is not allowed. It is only recently that Acrobat has become acceptable for licensing in Terminal Services by Adobe for a partial user base. If you have a network of 20 users using the Terminal Server with MS licenses, you can`t say that only 10 people use MS Office and only need 5 email accesses, so I only need to buy 10 Office licenses and 5 Exchange CALs. According to MS Licensing, when we called them about it, we still have to buy 20 Office licenses and 20 Exchange CALs, even if they are only on their own desktops and thin clients. 14.4 Settings Manager. Using WebPlayers, especially Flash Player, allows the software to save certain user settings as a locally shared object on your computer.

These settings are not associated with you, but allow you to configure certain settings in Flash Player. For more information about locally shared objects, see and for more information about Settings Manager, see As for the MS desktop on TS. If you have 20 users accessing the TS, you will need 20 licenses. It doesn`t matter how many computers these users use to access the TS. In terms of Acrobat DC on TS. I`m not 100% sure, but it should be so – if you only have 5 users using Acrobat Pro DC, you need to buy 5 subscriptions and assign them to their email addresses. Once they are on the TS, they need to sign in to Acrobat Pro DC with these email addresses.
