Office 365 (Wave 15) version of Office Pro Plus is not Installable on Remote Desktop Services (RDS)

    Some new information to help clarify deploying Office 365 Pro Plus on Remote Desktop Services (RDS) or Terminal Services (TS). It is also not available on Pooled VDI machines, a rare Microsoft VDI topology where multiple users share the same desktop.

    Companies looking to deploy using RDS need to purchase Volume License (VL) agreements which require a minimum of 5 quantity of any Microsoft product. However, you only need to license 1 copy of OfficePro Plus (recommended with Software Assurance so you get new versions) in addition to 4 others products (Server, Microsoft Project, Visio, etc) to cross the 5 qty threshold.
