You need a volume license version of office and enough copies to assign one to each RDS CAL. (You don't "install" licenses but you can only install the Volume License versions of Office on an RDS server and then you need the paperwork to prove you have sufficient licenses).

Log into the terminal server as admin, preferably at console.

Start the installation, and during the initial features setup you have the choice for 'Only my user' and 'For all users'. Obviously chose the all users options, and complete the installation.

Ensure you have CAL's to cover the users you are covering

Cheers
