I have terminal server remote application that I need to customize the .RDP file. I used the "Create .RDP file" in the remote app manager to create the original, but need to add a modified version also, or at least know if it is possible.

When I create an RDP short cut manually from my laptop (to the terminal servers IP) and have it start the program on connection, I get the desired results. The "program path and file name" needs to have a mode extension on the end of it's executable.  Something like this.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application\executable.exe     ** (Standard mode for the application)

needs to be:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application\executable.exe XXXX                  

  ** (Custom mode for the application. Just a space and a mode name (XXXX) on the end of the executable)

appreciate any help,
