Terminal Services Remote App Problem

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
With terminal services I have added some shortcuts from internet explorer and from firefox. I also have one application (.exe) that is setup as a remote app.  When I select any of the shortcuts, the authentication process works fine and the app displays, but after about 15-20 seconds, the app closes. If i select another app, or the same one, the authentication process starts over and I get the same results.  However, if I select the (.exe) remote app, the authentication process and the app are displayed fine and remain working.  I can then open the shortcut app's and they work fine as well.  Anyone know why the shortcuts I have linked are closing the RDS remote app session.

 I am running Microsoft Server 2008 R2 as a virtual server.  Clients are XP and Vista.  These results are not 100% consistant, but 90% of the time this is what happens.
