MS: Office 2007 Setup fail or crash on Windows 2003 x64 Terminal Server/Citrix

When you tried to install Office 2007 on a Windows 2003 x64 server with Terminal Server or Citrix installed the setup fail or crash.

This problem may occur when the 64-bit version of Windows Server 2003 is running Terminal Services in relaxed security mode. Office 2007 Setup program is only supported when Terminal Services is running in full security mode.

To work around this issue, you must run Terminal Services in full security mode. When you run Terminal Services in full security mode, Terminal Server users will have the same permissions as members of the Users group. To do this, follow these steps:

1) Open Terminal Services Configuration.
2) Click Server Settings.
3) Right-click Permission Compatibility, and then click Properties.
4) Click to select the Full Security check box, and then click OK.
