Remote Desktop Services - RemoteApp - no connect with this group policy enabled?
Posted on 2012-04-04
We're playing with the RemoteApp for the 1st fine. For years we've only used the standard Remote Desktop connection PC application. Aok.
With Group Policy Enabled "Use Only Allowed Windows Applications", and a real simple example using Calc.exe. RemoteAPP fails to connect and run Calc.exe. Just sort of hangs there and then dies. Nothing in Event Logs. Works aok as soon as we disable the policy. We tried both access via the .msi created icon and the Web RDWeb page.
The group policy is in User Configuration | Administrative Templates | System. Been working as expected for us for a long time, just not with the new RemoteApp.
After searching google, we tried adding more allowed applications to the allowed list such as rdpshell.exe, rdpinit.exe, rdpclip.exe, and about 25 others windows o/s related apps. We also looked at C:> Query Process * when successfully connected w/ policy disabled and made sure we had the few exe's shown also in our policy's allowed list.
Question: What do we need to add to "Use Only Allowed Windows Applications"? Does anybody have RemoteApp working with policy "Use Only Allowed Windows Applications"?
Yes client PC is running RDC 6.0.6001 protocol 6.1 supported.
Any comments appreciated.
