install a Windows program

Asked by Richard Shulimson on 2014-07-12

I have a Ubuntu 11.04 server in a completely Windows network (all but the server of cource) everything seems to work fine, samba (file/print server) web server, DNS... I have windows programs i.e. Adobe Photoshop. I would like to be able to centralize the program and run it from the server itself... none of the other computers on the network are capable to run the program but for the machine the server is now installed on. So my question is, How can i have a windows program installed on Ubuntu server 11.04 and run it from the server from my windows machines? Something like an application server or terminal server or something. The server is running Ubuntu server11.04 with 4Gb of DDR2 RAM 1-80Gb HDD (OS installiation) 1-640Gb HDD (has a bunch of WINDOWS programs and media), Intel P4 CPU. Any Help would be welcome. Thank you.

Ubuntu 11.04 is not supported in any way. It is EOL. I suggest you wipe Natty off and do a clean install of Trusty which is LTS and supported til April 2019.
