I have recently installed Windows Server 2012 standard to replace a Windows 2008 R2 remote desktop services server.

One thing i am having troubles figuring out is how to create a RDP file to distribute to end users for RemoteApps.

I can access RemoteApp's fine by going to the RDweb site internally, however i'm trying to distribute an RDP file to end users which includes appropriate terminal services gateway information, etc.

there no longer seems to be that option via the management gui.

thank you.

This is not available in Windows Server 2012 as standard snap-in as in Windows Server 2008/2008R2

Now, you need to follow a little bit different path. Check these MS documents for that at

thank you.

interestingly i found that even though i did a clean install of 2012, i gave it the same computer name as the 2008 R2 terminal server it replaced.

RemoteApp RDP shortcuts generated from the 2008 R2 system still work to connect to 2012.
So if anyone else is doing a similar migration path, if your application paths are the same and terminal server computer name is the same then your RDP shortcuts from 2008 R2 should still work, but microsoft no longer gives the option of using RDP or MSI methods to deploy remoteapps, you must use web feeds.

that's it, unless you can convince Microsoft to bring the RDP method back :)

that was ideal for trying to deliver Software As a Service where we host apps on a terminal server for our clients.
