How do I install an application on my Terminal Servers

Good evening Experts,

I have a similar question already open related to terminal services, but the direction of this question goes to installation. I want to install the open source application PdfCreator on my round Robin Terminal servers. My question is, do I need to install the app on both servers since they are working together as round robin partners , and secondly how do I publish the app to my users that log on via a dumb terminal. This is not citrix, so I am not publishing per se , so will the users just have the application when they log on the next time or do I have to do anything further?

A step by step how to would be nice.

The two terminal servers are called:
!and
!
The applications shown is just an example. I want to install PdfCreater.

You will need to install the application on both servers. To get the application to stream to the user you can use RemoteApp. You add the RemoteApp role on both servers, once done you would select the exe to run and create an icon that the users will use to launch the app. Finally set the security of who has access. The users will double click the icon, login and the app will load. Look and feel once the app is loaded is like it is running on the local machine.

The RemoteApp Role was already loaded on both servers. All I did was install the software on both servers and then logged into a terminal session and used the software. done.

Why did I not have to go through the last part of your comments SagiEDoc.?

The last part of the comment just makes the application available to the user as an application. The reason you would want to do that is the client will not have access to the server but only the app. Both methods will work but using remoteapp will be considered a more secure and limiting method.
