Disable the terminal services role and it will work.

Your source is wrong, the agent must be installed when the terminal server role is not installed/enabled. You then install the agent in desktop mode. Please follow http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2057605

It will work but it does not make sense to use those because of the way they are licensed.
