How to allow a remote app to see mapped drives

Last Modified: 2020-12-01
I am setting up a new 2019 RDP server.

Its all setup, We want the users to utilize the remote desktop APPS feature instead of the FULL RDP.

When i run programs that need mapped drives it will not run. or find the database.

My question is how to I allow the apps to use Mapped drives?
The user I'm logging into has Mapped drives on its profile on the RDP server.
