Remote app problem

I have a client that is using server 08r2, they are NOT on a domain. I have gone through the steps of setting up the rdweb, and terminal services. The cals are registered and everything is where it should be. The problem I am having is that the .msi package doesn't seem to work.
I have read that this is intended for active directory, domain users and groups. The clients didn't want to be on a domain so my hands were tied. Will this work at all without them being on a domain?
Thanks in advance for any help.

What is the name of the program that you are trying to install that is failing?

The Software is a accounting software called rfms. The users can remote into the server and run it just fine, the problem is that I don't want them to have access to the server. I created a msi package with the remote app RFMS and sent to them to install. The install works fine but says it can't find the server and crashes.

Thanks for that. I didn't realize that the msi was for the RemoteApp installer.

Have you tried to create an RDP file instead for the remoteapp? Does that work or are you trying to get file associations to work as well?

I didn't try the rdp file, but I did resolve the issue, I needed to point the remote app to the ip of the server, they don't host their website locally so that was why it didn't work. I changed that setting and it took off immediately.
Thanks for the help everyone.
