You would need to install it from a network drive with a MSI.

You can't install software via the RDP client as that client just transmits keystrokes and screen shots.

As RDP is not an install tool, just for viewing and remote control, I'd suggest one of the free Sysinternals PSTools - psexec.exe
It can copy the install package to the remote machine and run it with elevated privileges. That way the user doesn't need admin rights and you don't have to travel to see them.
