Remote Apps - Windows Server 2012

Morning,

I have been encountering an odd issue where my Microsoft office applications do not want to run inside RDweb access (or through Remoteapps and Connections) when you first initially launch them. I get an error stating "Couldn't open this program or file, either there was a problem with Word 2013 or the file you are trying to open could not be accessed".

I get that error for any Office application that I try and run. Our other apps launch fine. If I have another app already launched, like Acrobat, then there is already a connection established on one of our RDSH servers and I can open the Office applications without any concerns.

Any suggestions would be great, thanks.

Thank you for your response. I had a configuration mistake with my setup. All is working now.

I am experiencing the same issue with Excel.  If I connect to the TS via RDP it works fine.  We are using RDWeb to publish the application.  When I open Excel manually, I receive the error "Couldn't open this program file...."  I've confirmed that the file associations work.  There is software that launches Excel out of and ERP product that states that Excel is not found; just as a side not.  I've published the file associations as well.  I am guessing it comes down to a profile issue; but not sure.
