This blog article explains how to install DocumentsCorePack for MS CRM on a terminal server for CRM Online.
When installing DocumentsCorePack on a terminal server for CRM Online, you have to provide your Login Credentials for the initial installation. Enter a valid username and password.
Next, modify the registry. This ensures that other users are able to create a connection with their own login credentials easily when they start using DocumentsCorePack for the first time on the terminal server.

Now browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PTM EDVSysteme\ and select the configured profile (you can see the profile used in the HKLM\SOFTWARE\PTM EDV Systeme\DocumentsCorePackclient2011\ActiveProfileSetting).
Depending on the architecture of your server (x86 or x64), the location may vary. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\PTM EDVSysteme\ -> If this node is present please also perfrom the following modification for these registry keys.

If now a different user logs on for the first time on the server, he will be presented with this dialog as soon as he tries to use DocumentsCorePack. The user can then enter its own user specific credentials.

Please note: These steps will only work, if the actual users do not have an actual profile yet, which is only the case on initial installation.
