You must publish Explorer.exe as an app with the appropriate switches to open the folder you want.

For example if I want to open the Documents share on Server1 from RD Web I have to publish explorer.exe with the following switches

explorer.exe /e,/root,\\Server1\Documents

I have created hardlinks using
Mklink /j c:\shared_visible_folder\newsortcut c:\destination

created linked folder in the folder which is visible in RWW.
the workaround worked.
