Hi

   I have a window server 2008 standard with terminal services roles installed, and i have added a remoteApp program from TS RemoteApp Manager, and then to add RemoteApp program -< create .rdp files to a shared folder, remote desktop user to click on the .rdp file to run the application from the terminal server,  below is the issue

i have added a remoteApp program, a front end application , at the back it has MS sql 2008 as back end database, with ODBC connected, at first remote user will be able to connect to the application by clicking .rdp files, but when it reachs to database, the ODBC error pop up, and then i added another remoteApp program "ODBC" on it, and again save it to a shared folder on terminal server, remote user click in the .rdp file for ODBC, and configure the ODBC inside, this time i can run the application with no problem with the ODBC, is it a must to manually create a .rdp files for ODBC in order to make the front end application work ?

and when remote user trying to gerenate report, there is no response, it looks like that it can not gerenate data from database, but there is no problem at all when i work physically on the server with the application,  just wonder do i need to add another .rdp as well for this issue ?  

also remote desktop user want to use the printer on their local computer, when they are using the application via terminal server, when they click on print button, the printer only show from the server, not the printer on user's computer, is there any chance user can print out from their local printer instead ? Hope anyone can help with my problem , Thx

- redistribute ODBC connection through Group Policy Preferences. You'll be able to use your application without problems.
- if the client connects from the domain workstation - you can add local printer port pointing to his device. Another way - force them to use remote desktop printing or enable printer capturing in the RemoteApp properties.

Adding sahred printer as a local port may be a hassle if you have more than a few, as you have to add a port for each one of them.

There's, also in the GPMC, snap-in that will let you install the certificate for every account.
