MultiPoint Server Software Requirements

There are no software requirements for MultiPoint Server besides the installation of the operating system. Server software or user programs can be installed on MultiPoint Server as long as the following criteria are met:

  • The server hardware and the version of MultiPoint Server must meet the minimum requirements for the software. For example, if a program requires an Active Directory domain, it will not work correctly if it is installed on Windows MultiPoint ServerĀ 2010 for OEMs, which does not enable connecting to a domain.

  • You must have the appropriate rights and licenses to use the software. Your MultiPoint Server license and WMS or Remote Desktop Services (RDS) Client Access Licenses (CALs) do not entitle you to use other programs, such as Microsoft Office.


    Some user programs require special licensing for use on an RDS server. Microsoft Office, for example, requires a Volume License for multiple users when it is used in a MultiPoint Server environment.

  • Users must comply with the terms and conditions that come with the software.

  • User programs must be designed and supported to run in RDS sessions.
