Regarding PDF creator, in our Test environment PDF creator works fine. When I tried to move it to the production server, I got an error that because Terminal Services is installed on the Server we need to purchase the terminal services license. Terminal services is installed to allow both developers and admins access the production server simultaneously. The server is not being used by multiple users to access PDF creator. Just our business process that runs on the server. Is the increased licensing costs truly necessary for such an environment?
while the check isn’t in place to prevent the usage you describe, I am afraid there is no other edition which will run on a machine with remotedesktop services. Can the business process maybe run in a virtual machine on the server?
