    remote apps problem

    Hello all i have been playing with the remote app feature of 2k8 and have ditrubuted apps via rdp and msi the problem i have is that if i launch the app on any machine other than the actual 2k8 server it just launches a normal rdp session. (i have tried win2k3 and xp).

    At this point it asks me for a server to connect to in the same way it would if you run mstsc.exe from the run command, where it should ust launch the remote app, clearly i am missing a vital piece of configuration but what??? any ideas as always gratefully excepted.

    thanks in advance

    Are you running the latest version of the RDP client? I am not sure it's the cause, but a good place to start.

    Remote Desktop Connection (Terminal Services Client 6.0)

    As above you must have the latest RDP client to ba able to use it. This is avalible on XP SP3, Vista SP1, Windows 2008 and Windows 7.

    I had a little play with remote app a while ago and I can't point you in the direction of where to fix this problem exactly, but I remember there being some method of flagging an app to run as a remote app by default. Sounds like this has been enabled somehow?
