As decribed by Microsoft, "If a program other than Setup.exe or Install.exe starts from the CD-ROM automatically, the dialog box does not appear and the installation appears to be successful. However, the installation may not be successful because Windows is not in Install mode. Install mode allows for all the registry changes to be replicated to every user. If Install mode is not used, only the current user has the needed settings. ."

You will need to place your Terminal Server in Install Mode. To do so, please review the following Microsoft knowledge base article, Terminal Services May Not Warn About Changing to Install Mode to Install ProgramsQ238357
