How to - Or is it possible to publish a ClickOnce application in RDWeb

Client has a clickonce application which they currently launch from a sharepoint site.  They have requested we also publish it to their Remote Web Workplace.  I tried to add it, but it either doesn't work or forgets the file path.  Is is even possible to set up there?  Or, what would I need to do to be able to launch it from there?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Where does the actual app reside?
If you have the option you should have the developer recompile the app with a standalone installer, then you can publish it without any issue whatsoever.

It resided on a different server, but seems to be standalone already.  If I move the folder to another computer I can run it there just fine.  I've even tried putting in on the server that hosts the rdweb, but it still won't run from the web interface.

If you have a local copy in say C:\MyApp\MyApp.exe then run through the Publish Application wizard in the RDS section of Server Manager and manually choose the .EXE file.

Once published you should see it in RDWeb and it should run so long as the app is properly signed and does not require any kind of funky UAC bypass.

EDIT: The wizard may choose a UNC path (\\ServerName\C$\MyApp\MyApp.EXE) change that to the local path to avoid network signing issues.
