RDP icon, start IE with specific URL as only program launched

HI,

What path and run as information should I use in a RDP icon 'Programs' tab option so that IE is the only program started and it intially starts at a URL that I define.

I want to deploy to a few users this RDP icon so that only IE start and they use the web app.

Thanks.

If this is on a PC and you only want it to run IE, you can change the shell to iexplorer.exe http://urlpath

Here is a site that has the regkey you have to change...http://www.revolunet.com/snippets/snippet/change-windows-default-shell-replace-explorer.

If the users just need an icon that will take them straight into an application from a web site, check out the documentation on tsweb.

I tried it and I got the same error.  If you click on the HELP button on that error, it tells you what you need to do: you have to add IE to the RemoteApp Programs list.

But, I also found a "Step by Step" guide on MS's Technet site that explains how to set up RemoteApps:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc730673(WS.10).aspx

Here is the section on adding programs to the RemoteApp Programs list:

I hope this helps.
