If you are using/installing UltraEdit a lot, you might have experienced that you can register it for only one user on the machine...
But as I am setting up a Windows 2008 Terminal Server for several users to access remotely, it is a PAIN to register the key in UltraEdit on every user account.
Every other piece of software just work, what has been gone wrong with UltraEdit? / Is there a plausible fix for this problem?
Thanks a lot in advance!
You need to copy the license file "uedit32.reg" into the "%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\IDMComp" directory for each user. Easiest way to do this is probably a vbscript wrapper when the application is launched.
Have you contacted the vendor? It sounds like the application isn't really designed for use in a terminal server environment, which makes me wonder if you have licensed it properly for a TS.
The ultraedit registration is most likely adding something to the registry. You could probably figure out what it is adding with something like regmon. Then simply add that bit to everyone's registry as part of the login script.
Did you try installing and registering it using the "Install Applications on Terminal Server" selection in the control panel? You could also just run this from a command line before registering:
change user /install
Just make sure to run this afterward:
change user /execute
