Windows 2008 Remote Desktop App: settings are not there for all users


I installed an application for all users (install mode) on a terminal server.
Some configs on the application need to be done like adding a database, configure license etc.
I then published it via remote app. Now when I launch the application none of these settings are there.

Please advise + can I reopen the installation and change it?

If the Add/Remove programs control panel offers you the option to do a Modify (Change) then you could potentially alter the installation.

When this kind of thing happens, the most common issue is that all the settings were not configured while you were still in install mode.

One possible way to change it, would be to wipe out your own profile, and start with a clean profile.  Go into Install mode, and then configure the application, run it, etc.  That should generate the necessary settings to be stored in the registry etc.  If there are other files that need to be in the profile, you might need to setup a script to automatically copy them.

If you need that, I wrote an article on how to set this kind of thing up.

Not related to install mode, a config-file needed to be in the application-folder (according to manufacturer notes) but article was interesting.
