Greetings Experts.

I have a remote office that must use Terminal Server/Remote Desktop to remotely access an application that is on a server at our central office.  This application however is very cumbersome to use with just a single monitor.  Remote Desktop is not able to span multiple monitors so I have a problem.  

I have been trying to find other tools to allow for this type of functionality.  I have heard of some 3rd party products that can actually take individual applications that are installed on a Terminal Server and have a "virtual" launch icon on the local desktop - without the need for a full Terminal Services window.  The end user launches the app and views it as if it were installed locally, but it actually is being run on the Terminal Server.  I have found some old articles to do with "Tarentalla's Canaveral IQ" but the Tarantella site no longer exists.  I thought they might have been bought by, but the newmoon site doesn't resolve for me either.  

Does anyone know of a product that could help me with my issue?

Please note: We are a windows shop running Windows 2003 servers.  Management frowns upon open source OS and apps.  (no linux solutions please)
