What's different between sequencing on a MS Terminal Server box and a workstation?

Should you be doing user/global installations on the TS or just install as a regular user? Any other gotchas?

I know of two sites where we had great success rates sequencing on XP and sharing the sequence between XP and Terminal Server. I still keep some Terminal Server VMs for sequencing because the odd application will need to be sequenced there but I think as long as you are in the same family (XP/2003 or Vista / 2008), base applications are identical and group policies are similar you should have fairly high success rates.

Ok, great.

For those few apps that require the TS server, do you install the apps in "install" mode? I'm thinking not.

These apps will be deployed to the TS server and desktop clients with SCCM in stand-alone mode. Not sure if that's a factor.. shouldn't be I guess.

I'm trying to get my brain back in App-V mode. I switch back and forth between App-V and MSI every 6 months and it's scrambling my head.

What install-mode does is to "enable" shadow-registry (registry update in conjunction with time-stamp), .INI redirection and something more I can't recall.
So if you would like a "cleaner" package and don't want TS so handle ex. the HKCU population then don't as it will still be there in the "bubble".
