Word macros in a terminal server environment
Installation of Word Toolbars in a Terminal Server Environment
Applies to Amicus 2016\V20
Log on to the Terminal Server as the Terminal Server administrator
Install the Merge Toolbar using the KB here.
- Ensure that all folders in Windows Explorer are set to show extensions
- Ensure that Word and OfficeClickToRun are not running as processes
- Exit Amicus
In Windows Explorer, navigate to the C:\User\AppData\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP folder, where User represents your UserName. (You might need to first set your Windows Explorer View options to show hidden files.)
Right-click on STARTUP and choose Sharing and Security. Click the Security tab. Click Add.
In a terminal services environment, type the name of the group that includes all Amicus users (e.g. “Remote Desktop Users”) in the “Enter the object name to select” box, click Check Names, and then click OK. Alternatively, enter a single user's name, click Check Names, click OK, and repeat for each additional user.
On a shared computer, type another user's name in the “Enter the object name to select” box, click Check Names, and then click OK. Repeat for any additional users.
Copy the Amicus7.dot and AMICUS.DOT files from your STARTUP folder specified in step 3 above to the corresponding STARTUP folder in the similar path for each of the other users.
Other users will now have the Merge Toolbar installed, and see the Install Now button grayed out in their Document Assembly dialog of Preferences
