If memoQ is running on a terminal server (such as Windows Remote Desktop Services), you can use the memoQ Terminal Server configuration tool to activate memoQ on the terminal server, and configure machine-wide settings. These settings belong to all instances of memoQ running on that server.

On a terminal server, memoQ runs in multi-user mode. Normally, memoQ cannot be started more than once on a computer. Multi-user mode allows users to start memoQ in more than one instance, each running in parallel.

Only runs on a terminal server: You must run this on a server computer that will run several instances of memoQ. You must be administrator on Windows Server to do this.

How to get here

In Windows, press the Windows key. Type memoq. In the list of programs, click memoQ Terminal Server Configurator.

Note: The Terminal Server configuration tool is not available if memoQ was not installed in the multi-user mode. For instructions to install memoQ in multi-user mode, see the memoQ virtualization guide guide, available from the memoq.com website. (Despite the old version number, the guide can be used to install memoQ 8.2 on terminal servers.)

Important: You need to log on to the computer as an administrator before you can use the Terminal server configuration tool.


What can you do?

Start the Terminal server configurator for the first time

The machine-wide settings are available in four categories. You can configure the following settings:

Licensing: Use this category to specify and manage the licensing server that provides the licenses for the current terminal server. This page is the same as the CAL Licenses page in the Server Administrator. To learn more, see Help about the Server Administrator.

No fixed translator or project manager licenses: In multi-user mode, memoQ does not work with regular (individual) translator pro or project manager licenses.

Auto-update: On a terminal server, individual users cannot update memoQ from the Kilgray website. Instead, you can enable, disable, and schedule automatic updates through the Terminal services configuration tool.

Spell settings: Individual users cannot install new spell checker languages. As a server administrator, you can use the Terminal server configuration tool to install all necessary languages for memoQ's spelling checker.

Default TM Scheme: You can specify the descriptive fields that will be available in all new translation memories created in memoQ by any user of the terminal server.

When you finish

To save your changes in the current category: Click Save. The Terminal server configuration window remains open, so you can change other categories.

To display the settings in another category: Click a category on the left.

To return to Windows: Click Close. If you have not saved all changes, the program will remind you.
