It is installed already - I want to be able to interact with the desktop. Issue I am having is when our support team connects to the server and tries to start a 3rd party application, the application opens in the console window.  We need to change it so that the terminal services user are actually interacting with the desktop rather than a virtual desktop.

If the application is started in the Console session then it is probably something application specific which is causing it to bind to Session 0 (the console) rather than the logged in user's Terminal Services session.

Applications for Terminal Servers must be specifically coded to work with them, so this would be something I suggest you take up with the manufacturer of the program as to why it does not bind to sessions other than Session 0.

oh.. for your administrators.. they will need to log into the server using (this computer) rather than the domain... sorry i miss read you previous... this is how i do it to be able to manage sessions etc.. on the server.

If the application launches in the console session, the application is not written properly to work with TS. I'd therefore suggest Accept using http:#a22770596.

I am afraid I have to object to this action, only because this question errs into the "You can't do that" side of things. You CAN do it, but as I said, it's down to the authors of the application.
