Normally a thin client already has the RPD installed becase they have no hard drive you cant install applications on them. Look for MSTSC.exe which is the Microsoft Soft Terminal Services Connection

They are for doing remote desktops sessions into a server or another pc to run applications from.
The base load is on a flsh drive but they all come with a remote desktop application for you to remote into a server that you have.
So you turn on the thin client. Open RDP which is the remote desktop program. Type in the server name or ip address then click connect. Enter your credentials and you will be able to use the pc that you just remoted into. Thin clients are used to save money on pc's plus added security and failsafe. All files and applications are on the server that you dial into.
