When launching a remote desktop session, I want a specific program to start automatically upon login. I have set the "Start the following program on connection" field in the RDP settings. I login fine, but the desired program doesn't start automatically. Even with a simple program like notepad, no go. I've tried notepad, notepad.exe , "notepad" and "notepad.exe".
The computers are simple Windows XP Pro SP3, no domain controller here (so no domain controlled profiles, etc).
I've tried using gpedit.msc to set User configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Terminal Services->Start a program on connection, but no luck.
I've tried this to-and-from two different machines in the office. Same deal.
