What is the process for remote desktop environments when it comes to purchasing licenses?  Do you have to purchase a Webroot license for each concurrent user that connects to the server or do you just need 1 license for the server?

If it's a remote desktop server, just one for the server. For any other sort of VDI setup, you need one for each OS instance that is used by an end user.
So if we have 50 concurrent users remoting into that server, we only need 1 Webroot license, correct?

Due to the way Webroot works, yeah. Not sure if that will change in the future, but for now you lucked out 🙂
One of my clients does have a VDI environment so that answered my next question. Thanks.

Yeah for VDI you'll want one install on each OS. Are the OS instances persistent or are they destroyed on log out?
They use thin clients so the only OS is the server.

gotcha - in that case just one install. Basically the rule of thumb is one install of Webroot per OS.
Hello,
In the original post of this thread, it was asked:

Then the client replied:

Is this still the case?
 
We have Windows Server 2012 R2 with approximately 10 users via Remote Desktop Services.
 
Thanks,
