Hello experts,

Would it be possible to run an application from the RDP session without actually running the RDP in the background similar to a citrix session with published applications?  I have a few users who only need to run a few applications and don't need the RDP running in the back ground.  Just curious if this can be done.

You can do this with Windows 2008.

Earlier versions of the server require the likes of Citrix I'm afraid.

Sorry - I was under the impression that you were after a way to publish a seamless appilcation from a server.

Not a problem.  I didn't explain it clearly in my original post.  I was trying to get an application to run on the user's end without having the remote desktop running.  This seems to did it for what I was after.  I guess the only issue is that I can only run one application at a time and can't run more than one.

What you posted was more of what I wanted, since you can have multiple applications running.  However, this won't be possible until I setup windows 2008 server.

Thanks for the help.

Thanks for the advice on using windows 2008 server.  I will look into that once I can set that up.  However, that gave me an idea and was able to set it up using windows 7 as a test and temporary workaround.

You're more than welcome. I wouldn't be too much assistance on the Win 7 method, but if you want any assistance on the 2008 method, just holler :)
