Vmware View Agent install on a Windows 2003 Enterprise Terminal Server

I have a Windows 2003 Enterprise Server that is running as a VM on ESX and it is our terminal server. I have setup Vmware View and it is running fine with thin clients and desktops this works just fine.

However, I would also like to give access to our terminal server through View but when I try to install the agent on the terminal server, it starts to install and then quits when it gets to the configuring RDC part of the install. It then roles back the install and finishes. There are no error messges in the eventviewer and no error logs or evidence that v the view agent was installed on the harddrive.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? and what to do to get the vmware view agent to install
