Creating Remote Desktop Collection

Three servers:

1.  RDWeb, Broker, and Gateway.
2.  Remote Desktop Session Host.
3.  Remote Desktop Session Host.

All servers are Windows Server 2016 with all the latest patches as of this posting.

I have done everything so far EXCEPT create the RDP Collection.

QUESTION:  Should I install the application I need to publish via Remote Desktop on the two Session Host computers first then make them into a collection, or create the collection first then install the application?  The application is your typical thick client that connects to a database on another server.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Either way the application must  be installed before you can add it to the collection

Just to be clear, the application MUST be installed to RDS01 and RDS02 before adding them to the collection?
