Pretty sure

Pretty sure, though someone can certainly feel free to prove me wrong, that Terminal Server will only install on the server versions of Windows. So NT, 2000 (Advanced) Server, Windows 2003 Server, etc.

Hi ,

The link says to follow few command lines.
Are these safe to run since this has few reg changes too.

Also , If windows xp does not require then why are these commands mentioned.

correct me if am wrong.
Thanks much for your help.

You've been mislead.

The terminal server license is installed on the terminal server and not on Windows XP. There is some client access software but that is not a license but I bet some could confuse this with that.
