Multiple users accessing the same MSACCESS.exe application

We have a Remote Desktop server running 2012 R2.  On there, we have several users, each running MS Access.  Every user has their own .accde front-end within their local folder.  However, each .accde file is using the same MSACCESS.EXE runtime program - to do what they have to do.  

Is this OK and are there any issues doing it this way?  Or, do we need to install a full runtime for each user (I'm really hoping not).

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

  That is the way to do it, and no, you only install the runtime once through multi-user mode in control panel.  Once that's done, it's available for all users.
