Sorry I am unable to run office over RDP or install.
Have you changed mode from exec to install prior to your attempt?
RDS runs in exec mode, you gave to use a command prompt in elevated admin role, then run the change mode command.

Are you installing the pack, or an application at a time?

Hi Arnold - I'm not following sorry for being blond.
On an RDs/terminal server, the default operating mode is exec, no install is permitted/allowed without changing the operating mode for the session.

Open a command prompt (cmd.exe) run as administrator
Run the command change user /query of it says exec, that means you can not install anything. To install, run change user /install (leave this window)
Now you can run and install applications,
Once done with the install. Run change user /exec in the window previously left.
