I am using RemoteApp to publish a program for Windows 7 Embedded thin clients and a few laptops that use RDP.  The published app is basically an "application launcher" that gives a menu of programs within a suite to launch.  It takes up a small portion of the screen in the center of the monitor.  Once you choose the app you want, it launches full screen and you are in.  The problem I am having is that sometimes the application itself disappears leaving only a square the size of the "application launcher" as the application but nothing is there.  You can see a portion of the desktop within this screen.  I suspect that the application has minimized itself and I have no idea how to get it back to the foreground.  Again, just to clarify, the published app is a small launcher screen I call the "application launcher" and then they choose the app from that which then launches in full screen.  Somehow, this gets minimized within the remoteapp session and the user is left with just visible wallpaper the size of the original app launcher.  The application is definitely minimized WITHIN the remoteapp session and not on the local machine.   The only way I can get the thin client working again is to logoff the session from the terminal server.
