This article describes how Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) and Microsoft TechNet subscription customers can enable Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 to run on a server on which Office 2010 was installed and activated and on which the Terminal Services (Remote Desktop Services) server role was later added.
