Can you put Lacerte and Quickbooks on MultiPoint?
Now on the train home from the Sacramento IT pro group (see photos posted up on www.facebook.com/smbmvptour ) and here's the answer to a couple of questions that came up...
Can you put Quickbooks on MultiPoint?
Answer: Yes. Officially speaking the party line of Intuit is that they will support Quickbooks Enterprise in a terminal server environment. But here's the reality of the real world. Quickbooks Pro (non enterprise) works just fine in a TS environment. I'd recommend that you use the CUTEPDF writer instead of Intuit's native pdf printer, but it-does-work.
Can you put Lacerte and Lacerte's DMS on MultiPoint?
Answer: Yes. Both Lacerte tax program and DMS are supported in a terminal server environment. http://www.cpapracticeadvisor.com/article/10263177/intuit-mdash-lacerte-tax-software?page=2
Although it is normally installed locally, Lacerte can be used in a Citrix/Terminal Server environment, if the firm has access to the IT expertise to set it up, providing remote offices or staff with access to the system
Bottom line MultiPoint is a terminal server box. It it will work on TS, it will work on MultiPoint.
