Hello,

There should be a GPO for that:

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options

These two settings:

Interactive Logon: Message title for users attempting to logon
Interactive Logon: Message text for users attempting to logon

Easiest thing is to use the Task Scheduler.

Create a new task and set the trigger as At Logon, then under actions select display a message, enter the message details and save the task.

You mean the web interface?
In that case, no it's not possible.

Glen KnightCommented:
RemoteApp is delivered through the web interface or through the RDP client with specific settings and is populated on the start menu as applications only rather than desktops.

As I said, unless you are loggin on directly to the server using a full Remote Desktop Session or a Console Session there is no way to display a message.

Strange because from the console it works !
Are you sure that RemoteApp is delivered through the web interface ?
I'm not using Remote web access, more over IIS roles services are not installed and RemoteApp is working fine through RDP or MSI package deployed.

I said Web Interface or through RDP.

You still connect to the RDP client but you run an isolated session instead of a full desktop session.
