Install R and R Studio on Windows server

Can R and R Studio be installed on a Windows server together with multiple users accessing the software through RDP? If yes, can someone share help/guidance on how this might be done. TIA!

We recommend Posit Workbench as a much better way to provide RStudio to multiple users. There's also an open source RStudio Server which serves a similar purpose (though is limited to one session per user). Both allow users to use RStudio right in the browser, no RDP required.

That said, we know lots of folks who do indeed have multi user setups using RDP, so it's possible! A lot depends on whether you are also trying to share access to folders containing data/code.
