Problem distributing the rdp file in Terminal Services.

I have an application that is made available via Terminal Services 2008.  On the Terminal Services server I create an MSI installer. The option to do this is available in TS Remote App Manager. So the MSI is created on the Terminal Server. I then copy it to the client. I launch it and it spawns an .rdp file.

For some reason upon launching the .rdp file I get an error that says "Cannot open C:/Program Files/xxx/xxx/this.exe . " It seems it tries to access the executable locally for some reason. Is there something I'm doing wrong which would cause this behavior. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Is the software you are trying to publish written in Microsoft's ClickOnce technology?  If so, it will run in a terminal server session but not as a RemoteApp or even a Citrix app.

if you look at the shortcut path, does it look similar to this:
"C:\Program Files\RemotePackages\WINWORD.rdp"
