Knime on Terminal Server

I'm considering to run Knime on a terminal server. Is there a way to automatically give each user his own workspace, like the flag -data in eclipse? I prefer to run knime independently and not as an eclipse plugin.
Thanks,

"-data" works in KNIME just like in Eclipse. So you could create a Link-file to knime.exe with an additional "-data %HOME%/knime_workspace" (does this exist in Windows?) or similar.

There is an even easier way to achieve that. If you have a multi-user environment for a single KNIME instance each user gets an own workspace and configuration area. This is done by simply putting:

osgi.instance.area.default=@user.home/KNIME/workspace
osgi.configuration.area=@user.home/KNIME/configuration

into the config.ini file in the installation directory/configuration folder.
@user.home is the user's home directory, KNIME/workspace is just an proposed name for the folder ;o)
