RDS 2008 R2 RemoteApp Not Running - Does Run from Remote Desktop?

Scenario:
Installed an VB6 application on our RDS server (RDS1) that basically installs some components but then runs from a shortcut to a shared folder on another server with an argument e.g. \\SERVER1\AppFolder\Bin\RunMe.exe \\Server1\Appfolder\ where "\\Server1\Appfolder\" is the argument.

This works great if I Remote Deskop into RDS1 with a full desktop.  But if I publish as a RemoteApp I receive an COMCTL32.OCX error???

Any thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks!

Create a batch or CMD file that calls the application and publish that as a remote app. Does it work in this case?

Just tried it with my fingers crossed :-) No luck.  Great idea though.

Again, it (the .cmd file) does work from the desktop but when running the published RemoteApp the command shell does show up briefly but then I receive the same error message???

Try on the batch file to show the path before you call the app (the path variable). That could be the issue. If you see a weird path you can set it on the batch.

Figured it out... As embarrassing as it is to admit... I neglected to install the application in RD-Install mode prior to installing!  An uninstall from the original user and then a re-install, in RD-Install mode, and the app works fine.

Thanks for your thoughts Claudio!
