RemoteApp Tool

April 12th, 2018 by and tagged , ,

As I was working with a Remote Desktop Session Host the other day, and creating some RemoteApps (more on that in a post shortly), I came across an interesting utility from Kim Knight, the RemoteApp Tool . It makes it possible to do some interesting things with RemoteApps, including creating .msi files to deploy them. But what interested me the most was that it allows you to have RemoteApps from Windows clients! The clients must be Enterprise editions (or equivalent in earlier versions), and this does not get around the single console user limitations of Windows client, but it’s a perfect solution for users who have multiple computers they use and do not want to have to buy multiple copies of specialized software. Or set up a full RD Session Host just for their home environment! The program is free-ware, appears to work well, and solves several problems with managing RemoteApps for SOHO or SMB environments. Recommended!
