TS RemoteApp on SBS 2011

I am setting up a SBS 2011 for the first time and am wondering if I can use TS Remote App to allow a user in a remote office to access an application installed on the server? If so, I'm looking for a guide of sorts to set this up. Ideally I'd like a shortcut on the desktop in the remote office that would seamlessly connect the user to the application hosted on the server at the main location.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

SBS cannot be a remote desktop session host server. And remoteapps is built on RDSH, so no this cannot be done. Client applications need to be installed on a properly licensed RD server with CALs.

There is even an official kb article saying it will give you trouble if you do and it is not supported:

Ofcourse you can go for a virtualized solution, install a windows 2008 R2 standard on the physical machine with just the Hyper-v Role enabled, install SBS 2011 as first VM and install a second virtual machine you may use the same license used as physical installation for use as RD Server.

Well that seems to pretty definitively answer my question. I noticed in the MS KB article it says something about SBS 2011 Premium Add-In. Is that something I can purchase and apply to my existing SBS or would it have to have been purchased originally instead of SBS 2011 Std?

The premium add-on can be bought later on so that would be an option. Please nite that of you don't use the sql license buying a windows 2008 R2 standard is cheaper.
