RemoteApp Manager on Windows Server 2012 R2 is missing

The RemoteApp Manager on Windows Server 2012 R2 is missing, but all of the other Remote Desktop Services programs are present:

RD Licensing Diagnoser
Remote Desktop Gateway Manager
Remote Desktop Licensing Manager

I need to change a shortcut on the RD Web Access page due to a program update, and the original shortcut is no longer valid. I have searched everywhere on the server, and that app is missing. Can someone point me in the right direction or how to change the published apps on the RD Web Access page? I am desperate because several users want access to that program again.

Thanks in advance

Are you logged onto the correct server that has the Remote Session Host Tools ?

Almost all RDS tools got pulled into Server Manager in 2012. Only the licensing tools stayed separate. So this is completely normal. You use the remote desktop services pane in server manager now to manage the remote apps in a collection.

Go back to overview and finish setting things up. That there is no other tabs on that pane suggests that setup was not completed or the configuration was removed.

If you are trying to manage older servers such as 2008 R2  you'll have to use 2008 amR2/win7 management tools as well. 2012 cannot manage older RDS deployments.

This was already setup before I started working here, and everyone uses this RD Server to access programs from the Web Access page. Is there anywhere else this would be configured from? We usually control access to these programs by security groups, and I'm trying to look around for a GPO but I am having no luck.

No. Everything happens from server manager. You can do a minimal deployment without server manager at all and forcing settings via gpo, but it'd be kludgy. And RDWA generates its web pages using collections published from server manager, and that can't be replicated with GPO alone. Make sure all servers with RD roles have been added to server manager though.
