RemoteAPP

I set up a small lab for testing RemoteAPP. I have a DC and one member computer. I'm running RemoteAPP from the DC - yes I know not recommended. I've created an .rdp file, .msi file and one program to run from web access <myserver>/rdweb.

I can access the web site fine and see the application (Paint) when I select it, it asks for credentials which I enter, the dialog box says starting but the app never starts. Same thing for the .rdp and .msi file. The remote computer is a member of the TS Web Access Group (not sure if users need to be a member of a specific group).

Server 2008 R2
Win7

For the RemoteAPP accessed via the Web it sits for awhile after entering the credentials, with the word 'starting', then it pops open to full screen with a desktop ant the bottom of the screen.

assess the facility usig normal RDP to check it works before diagnosing the remoteapp element.

IE:

rdp to the 'server' using the appropriate username/password
check it connects OK without errors
try opening the application as normal

if this doesn't work using normal rdp, the remote app wont work either. get it working in RDP first then move onto the remoteapp.
