How to edit xml configuration file when installing Office 365 E3 on RDS Terminal Windows Server 2012

When attempting to install Office 365 on a Windows Server 2012 OS set up for Terminal Services I get the error message in the url below when trying to follow the installation instructions from Microsoft.

The error likely results from not knowing what to replace the "\\SERVER\SHARE\" with when editing the xml configuration file per the other url instructions below from Microsoft.  My regular network guy wanted to help but was too busy even at $100/hour due to getting a gigs paying $1,200 to $2,500/hr.  Still willing to pay $100/hr for help if anyone is willing to remote in using my join.me account and have other server admin needs as well.

Intallation guide I was following:

Hi Dilip,

The link you provided is actually included in my post for help.  I don't know what to replace \\SERVER\SHARE\ with.
Are you able to help if we start a join.me session to remote into the server?

Thanks
Ray

Hello Ray,

You have to replace the Share folder name of office source folder. Once you have to download the office source and share this folder and give full permission to this folder and then replace the shared folder path to \\SERVER\SHARE.

Please keep one point in your mind if firewall disturb your network then please disable the firewall.

Below information and link helps you to deploy office 365

Office 2013 installations that use Click-to-Run will download the Office product from the Internet, with full UI, and with automatic updates enabled.
Some administrators will need more control beyond the default Click-to-Run installation behaviour in order to work best in their environments.
Using the Office Deployment Tool, an administrator may:
• Download an Office installation source to a network share location
• Configure an installation to use a network share as the installation source instead of the Internet
• Configure an installation to suppress all UI
• Configure the logging for an installations
• Configure whether Office will automatically update or not
• Configure which products and languages to install
• Remove Office Click-to-Run products

Administrators run the Office Deployment Tool at the command line. The tool consumes a configuration file, which the administrator can modify to specify what the desired action is.
Office Deployment Tool and the options expressed in the configuration file from these links:

Please try this.

The sample configuration files provided by Microsoft as examples included inappropriate character "?" and other formatting characters that required deletion to enable the configuration file to function properly.  The errors in the configuration file needed to be resolved for configuration file to work.
