Passing variables from remote desktop session to local machine running the session.
Posted on 2007-10-04
Need to pass variables from a Microsoft Remote Desktop session ( server2003to the OS and applications of the local workstation (2000 or xp) running the remote desktop session.
The application running on the remote desktop session is a Delphi exe accessing a paradox file.
We need the remote desktop application to pass data that tells the local desktop what application to open ( MSWord, MSExcel, Adobe, etc) and what file to get.
We do not want to install these MS applications on the remote desktop machine.
When the user chooses a record in the remote desktop Delphi application, the local workstation opens the correct application locally ( not remote desktop) and loads the correct file.
