    Question PDC on Windows 7 Ultimate

    I am involved in a local amateur theatre group, and we have just gone online with our box office system.
    We don't have a big budget (well virtually none), so have got a Dell Netbook (win 7 ult) which we use to pull in and store our emails. We also have a PC in the box office (win xp pro sp3) and a laptop (win 7 ult).
    As we take on more volunteers to help staff the box office, I find I have to enter usernames and passwords on all 3 machines.

    Can I install an Active Directory Users bit out of Server 2003/8 (or install a 3rd party program to do the same thing) and install to Win 7 Ult?

    Welcome to the Lounge!!

    No. You need to have a Windows server to run AD.

    Thanks for the quick reply, Joe. I was hoping there was a third party program I could use. Fortunately only 3 machine's at moment, so setting up usernames and passwords isn't that much of a major issue.

    Use generic logins for the volunteers, real ones for staff - assuming you have staff.

    cheers, Paul
