RemoteApp certificate problem Windows 2102 R2

I have enabled RemoteApps on a Windows 2102 R2 RDS server.

From a Win7 client all works well if I use a browser to access the RDS server, manually install the (self signed) certificate and use the remote-apps.

However,  on the same client, when I try to add the remote-apps through Control Panel > RemoteApp and Desktop Connections wizard I keep getting a certificate error. (below)

* I have installed the (self signed) certificate into the Trusted Root Certification Authorities on the Win7 client.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

I've also spotted this error when connecting via a browser.

certificate error
I believe the error could be becasue my certificate name  does not exactly  match the name of my RDS server.

In the link below

I spotted this line -  You know the name on the certificate must match the name RD Connection Broker uses to identify itself.

I had created a new certificate called remoteapp.domain.local where as the FQDN of my RDS server is rds.domain.local.

So, I created a cname alias in my domain DNS that points remoteapp.domain.local to rds.domain.local.

Now, when I enter https://remoteapp.domain.local/RDWeb/Feed/webfeed.aspx into the Remote Apps control panel the wizard works.

My Remote Apps are appearing in my Progams menu.

thanks for all your help.
