Is it possible to host (and acesss) a remoteapp on localhost (from localhost) with the above OSes?  There is a workaround for WindowsXP (https://www.mydigitallife.info/workaround-for-remote-desktop-client-to-connect-to-localhost-local-terminal-server-service/) but the same workarounds in Windows 8.1 Enterprise results in the error "The number of connections to this computer is limited and all connections are in use right now.  Try connecting later or contact your administrator."
