When you install a program on a Terminal Server for multi-user
access, you have to put the TS into "install mode". This can be
done in 2 different ways:
(1) Control Panel - Add/Remove programs - select your application
setup.exe - choose "Make this program available for all users".
This method works only if you are installing a program from a CD
or harddisk.
(2) If you install a program from a web site like Windows Update,
you cannot use method (1). In such cases, you have to put the TS
in "install mode" by hand. Open a command window and type (without
the quotes): "change user /install". Then install the program.
When the installation is finished, do not reboot, but type in the
same command window: "change user / execute" to put it back into
"execute mode"

The above assumes that the TS is installed in "Application Server
mode" (i.e. it allows an unlimited amount of user sessions). If
the server is installed in "Remote Administration mode", then the
above is neither possible nor needed. You have only 2 concurrent
connections for administrators and multi-user support is not
build-in.

This article explains in detail why install mode is necessary on a
TS, and what it does. Check the section under Installation mode
and Execute mode:
