I have deployed Office 2016 Pro Plus on a RDS server, all of which is working fine. However, one of the users who's working remotely is now saying that they need MS Access, which I didn't install during the initial deployment.  I assumed that when I ran setup.exe again (through Install Application on Remote Desktop), it would go into the "Uninstall or Change" mode that you get if you launch it from the Programs list. However, it's not doing that but launching setup.exe as if it's a fresh install.

I'm leery of going through the entire install again, because I don't know what effect it will have on the already installed applications.  Is it possible to launch an .exe or .msi from the Pro Plus CD to install Access only?  Does anyone have any experience with this or a way around doing a complete install again?
