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).

  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.
