I am configuring a Remote Desktop Services in Windows Server 2008 RC2 and it is encountering problems when I attempt to put the server in install mode.

I get the following error when I attempt to do so:
Install mode does not apply to a Remote Desktop Session Host server configured for remote administration.

What's the procedure to when installing applications in RDS?
When I installed RDS, it installed the remote administration tools as a prerequisite and I am unable to uninstall them without first removing RDS.

You don't need to use "Add Programs".

Just run the setup.exe directly from the network location or CD/DVD without going to "Add Programs"

If you are going to put this server in RDS application mode then you would need to change the system to install mode but you first need to put the server in Application mode before trying to add programs.

If you are going to keep the server in Remote Admin mode then no need to install programs witin install mode

You need to make sure that Session host is installed.
