Newby question alert.

OK. I have a Server 2003 server already running in TS mode for my QuickBooks
Enterprise Edition. I just found out that I need to load Office on the TS
for everything in QBES to work.

Since Office is going to be loaded on the TS can everyone use it? Is it
legal? They have 15 TS licenses for the 15 people that will be accessing
that server. I know that they would be very happy to not have to buy more
Office applications. Thanks in advance for all the help.

Office is licensed per device.

That means that you must have a valid Office license for every
client which runs Office. It doesn't matter if Office is installed
locally on the client, or if it is run within a terminal server
session on the client.
Note that Office licensing is *not* per user, and *not* per
*conncurrent* connected devices.

Just the one that came with it. Do I need to get a different license to use
it like this?
