To install applications on a terminal server, best practices recommend you use change user command;

    Log on to the terminal server as an administrator and close all applications.

    To open a command prompt, click Start, point to All programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command prompt.

    Type change user /install and press ENTER.

    Install the program on a local NTFS file system formatted drive as directed by the installation program.

    At the command prompt, type change user /execute when installation is complete.

    If applicable, edit and run the program installation script.

Good Luck!

Hello

I know that licensing contract terms are most close to SF, but I think you need more than one license for using office like that.
