The PC with this IP address has not be found, or does not have Server service running.
First try to ping the address
ping -n 1 169.254.102.56
and if that succeeds, open Services applet and see for Server service. Start it.

If this is the dialin IP of the server, it might be a wrong one. It is a APIPA address, used if no DHCP and no static IP is setup or available. I reckon you should use the real server IP instead of the APIPA / Dial-in one. Windows often has issues binding services to the dialin adapter - it does not work in most cases.

Now I understand. First you need to transfer the installation package to this computer. This can be done
  • by RDP, if you enable Drive Sharing in your RDP client settings and reconnect. Your local drives will show as \\tsclient\c aso. in Explorer, and can be used to drill down to the file. I recommend to move it to the root, as drilling down several folders is very slow.
  • using the dial-in connection and your local Server service, if enabled. Use a network drive share from remote to local, and copy as usual.
After having the installation package ready, you can install it in the RDP session.

Start Remote Desktop client, but do not connect yet.
Click on "Options" to open more settings, and choose tab "Local Resources".
Check the drive sharing option.
Now you can connect.

You will have to look into your Services applet of Control panel for the Server service.
