Hi,

We are using Windows Thin Client Server. Can we use Studio 11 in this environment and create a TM?

Regards,

Sudarshan

IMO Studio was not intended as an application for thin clients but I suppose it's possible (I use sometimes the administrative terminal mode for Studio installed on my Windows server, which is very similar).

Nonetheless:
- you must have Professional floating licenses (for other license types the license is disabled if Microsoft RDP is detected);
- you should give a lot of memory to the client (Studio may use up to 2 GB of RAM for some operations e.g. AS dictionary generation), so t may be cheaper and more effective to buy normal workstations if you're planning multiple Trados thin clients (the floating Pro license is also very expensive);
- it's possible you should adjust the user right settings for some files/folders in the shared system folders (generally, it should work, Studio is not so messy as the old Trados).

PS
The last time I tested it for S2009.
The licensing server technology for S2011 changed, so it may be some quirk here.

BTW
The support for MS Terminal Server was recently introduced in memoQ.

Cheers
