How to install an application on Windows Server 2008 Terminal Server?

as usually I'm a little bit lost in the very basic topic:-)
I need an advice about what is the correct procedure to install some application on Terminal Server running Windows Server 2008 so that the TS users will be able to use that application independently? By the application I mean MS Office for instance.

I know about RemoteApps, but not sure if this is the most feasible solution. The users will need to access the server through RDP from the Internet.
Thank you very much in advance

    I believe if your users are going to be using RDP to connect to the server then you just need to install it through the programs control panel applet.

    However, if you want specific settings configured then you'll want to use a transform file to do things like set default directories, etc.  You can create the transform files with help from the Office Resource Kit available from microsoft.
