Hi,

OK so I need to deliver an application to a branch office, but I don't really want publish the whole desktop rather just the application. I understand it's possible to link a remote app directly to a local desktop.

I have Windows 2012 R2 server and the company has purchased RDS 30 licenses, I am confused to be honest. I was suppose to attend a training course this week but it got cancelled.

I've spoken to Microsoft licensing and they told me to download "Microsoft Application Virtulization 4.6"

My question is where to start do I need Remote desktop services if so how do I install the licenses as we have no keys - or "Microsoft Application Virtulization 4.6" or do I need both?

I need a nudge in the right direction

Thank you

Ian

If you're keeping it simple and just have a single RDS Server then just install the RDS roles on that server and publish the app via RD RemoteApp or Web Access. You can install the application in question on the RDS and then publish it as a WebApp that your users can get to via Internet Explorer or you can create an installable (*.msi) RDP Connection that you can deploy via group policy to the machines or users in question. To the user it will appear as if the application is installed on their local computer.

Here's a good reference point to get you started with installing your RDS: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/10758.deploying-and-configuring-rd-webaccess-in-windows-server-2012.aspx

You don't have to, but it might be easier to manage if you do.
