  • Remote Apps

    I'm currently transitioning some people from one terminal server to another. They have an application that they aren't going to be using for that much longer, but need to refer back to in the short term. Only a few users need to still access it. We don't want to reinstall it on the new terminal server because it is resource intensive, so we decided to make it available as a remote app, hosted on the old terminal server.

    I installed the .msi file that I created on the old terminal server. When one user on the new terminal server starts up the app, it seems to work ok. But when a second user starts up the app, it seems to kill it for the first user.

    Does anyone know why this might be happening? Thanks.

    Edit: This all on Windows Server 2008 R2.

    Is this issue occur during logon to the TS desktop by using the users accounts?

      No it does not.

      When I install the .msi file for the remote app, am I supposed to install it in "change user /install" mode like I would for other terminal apps?

      Also, I should have mentioned, the new terminal server is on a different domain in a different physical location. Access to thes old system is only being allowed because of this required application.

        1. Not all the application works with RemoteApp. You can try to use TS Web Access or using a regular RDP (to the TS Desktop or for RemoteApp).

        2. You can try to reboot the server after installing the MSI. However, change user isn’t required today for MSI applications.

        3. Do you use Software Restriction GPO? Or GPO limit users sessions etc.?

          I ended up restarting the server, and it fixed the issue. Thanks for the help.

          Let me ask a followup question. If the users are logged into the same domain as the server hosting the remote app, is there a way to avoid having them login when they double click the remote app's shorcut?
