Windows 2012 Remote Apps Question

Hello all. I have a little situation here that I need some help with. I have a Windows 2012 Remote Apps server setup for remote sessions (not remote desktops).

I then had one of my DBA's write a MS Access front end that requires each user to launch a unique copy of the front end. How can I go about setting up and publishing an app where the server will copy the front end file and use that unique copy for each user?

I tried writing a .bat file that copied the file from a shared location to the users profile and then launch the front end, but when I publish it, I can connect to the remote app website, launch the .bat, but it runs that .bat file on the local machine and not the RDS server.

An example of my script is:

-----------------------------
xcopy "\\server1\share\frontend.accdb" "\\server1\users\%username%\desktop" /Y
Start "" "\\server1\users\%username%\desktop\frontend.accdb
----------------------------

You won't get that to work as a remoteapp. You'd need a full remote desktop session or VDI. It is the nature of how remoteapps are published and signed.
