- Can InstallShield tell the system is running as Terminal Server?

- On a system that is running Terminal Services, each user has a unique Windows directory which seems to be the issue for us to install the s/w.

Dependent software requires files to be installed in Windows directory (say C:\Windows) but "WINDIR" variable returns "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Windows". This misleads the setup putting the files in the wrong directory.

I doubt that IS has such system detection, but you could certainly use this knowledge to create your own condition.

'cause certainly a WINDIR value containing "Documents and Settings" is non-standard and you could safely assume it to be running under Terminal Server.
