you need to do a little bit more troubleshooting ; what do you see in event application logs when user B fails to run reports ; do you see any errors or warnings ?

do you see anything in your application when user tries to pull reports ? does user B have proper access permission to report feature ?

But when user B login with remote desktop with his own user login, the report work probably, only when he use remoteapp has the report problem, let me remote the terminal server now to see if there is any event application log, i see similar case from microsoft forum,

Do the user B access the remote App have roaming profile. May be issue with the profile, try to rest the profile of the user B and try to access the App.

Best practise is to rename the profile folder instead of deleting it.

Does user A use the same version of RDP Client that user B is using?
With RemoteApp, make sure all of your users are using the most recent version of Remote Desktop Client. You can experience some weird behavior using earlier versions of RDP client and RemoteApp.

Open RDP client (mstsc.exe) on your workstation but instead of clicking 'connect', click the upper left corner then pick "about". See my screenshot. Win Xp SP3 probably all run 6.1 but you should check. I'd upgrade the version since you're experiencing odd behavior only when using RemoteApp.

Yes, you'll find it on microsoft's site. Scroll down to the link to the RDP client download for XP SP3.
