Install Quickbooks POS 2018 on Terminal Server / RDS

We have a user wanting to install Quickbooks POS in a Terminal Server/RDS environment.  (Specifically a Microsoft Azure hosting environment)  I am looking to gather information as to whether this is possible or allowed.  Full disclosure, we are testing it but it is not allowing any more than one simultaneous login to the POS program.  We are given a specific error message essentially stating that Quickbooks POS cannot be opened under more than one user account on the same machine.  Is this the final answer or is there a method of installing in such a way that this can be done for multiple users on the terminal server host?

Explore another solution to host it. You may host it on your premise or the cloud.

@RMerrisKemperCPA  That's a great question!

 

While we don't support RDS, it sounds like your method works. If you want your POS to open from multiple computers at once, you may want to install it on the local machine and access the files on the server. 

 

Here are some suggested workarounds from other users in the community: QuickBooks RDS Server Certificate Revoked

 

Let us know if you have additional questions.

Are there any plans to change the licensing so that at least the software will run on a RDS server?
