Microsoft Office 2013 Professional on Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Server

Hi,
 
 When I was installing Office 2010 Professional version of software on the Windows 2008 or 2008 R2 Terminal Servers, I had to buy Volume License version. The regular retail version of Office 2010 Pro. would not work.
 
 I need to install Office 2013 Professional on a 2008 R2 Terminal Server. Should I buy VL version again?

Thanks.

You need to use a Volume License of Office 2013 to install it on an RDS server (Remote Desktop Services, née Terminal Services)

No need for VL anymore, you can use ProPlus with shared computer activation: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn782860.aspx
