Cannot install a program in XP Mode, Remote Desktop Error

Hi

I apologise if this has already been asked and solved. I am trying to install a program in XP Mode and every time I try to run the setup.exe I get the following error message;

"The Windows Installer does not permit installation from a remote desktop connection"

Please can you advise if there is a way around this issue

Regards

Paul
