Making Windows Application work as a Remote App on Windows server 2008 R2

Hi All

I have a Windows App that I want 10 staff to be able to access as a Remote App.
I've got the licencing for Cals etc in place.
I've created 10 users on the server and made them mobile users.
Its mostly working except:-

The things I need resolved are:
The users keep getting asked for credentials, despite ticking "remember ..."

Occasionally they get a message :-
select a session to reconnect to.  they then have to pick from a list of connections.
Why is this happenning?

On a couple of Vista machines the RDP icon is different and when clicked it tries to run the App in a desktop rather than as a Remote App.

Many Thanks

Sam

Such Remote Application only can be accessed via Citrix.

You need to install Citrix on your server where you can install the applications which will be accessible to the users. They can connect to the Citrix Farm and access those apps which will be executed on the Remote Server and not on their Desktop.

Hi Reach

Thanks for the reply but I'm afraid that's not true.  Windows 2008 R2 fully supports Remote Apps.  We've got it working just a few teething problems that need ironed out.

If you configure your server as Terminal Server, then you can allow many other users to access the Application same time. In that way you can use it (This could be work around for your problem) about the remote apps on Windows 2008 i will have a check and get back to you

This is being cancelled as there was no response to the question.

I'm also sorry to say we're now going to cancel our membership as the last few questions posted have had little or no response worth mentioning.

No one came forward with a solution.  The one response we did receive clearly had no knowledge of Windows 2008 Server.

Seriously disappointed with the lack of response this fee charging forum has these days.
