Deploying Microsoft Teams on an RDS (Remote Desktop Services) Server 2019 can be a complex task, fraught with potential pitfalls and challenges. If you’re facing issues with the installation, configuration, or performance of Teams on your RDS server, you’re not alone. Let’s dive into the process and get your Teams up and running.

Download Teams msix

Download Teams (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/new-teams-bulk-install-client) and put it in a folder. In my case I put it in C:/IT. I downloaded MSTeams-x64.msix

Powershell commands

Open powershell as admin and run this command:
(location and file name will need to be changed to match yours)

Dism /Online /Add-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackagePath:c:\it\MSTeams-x64.msix /SkipLicense

If you get the error “To install this application you need either a Windows developer license or a sideloading-enabled system.”
