Enabling RemoteApp Programs for Remote Desktop Web Access
Updated: March 2, 2011
Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2
By default, a RemoteApp program is enabled for RD Web Access when you add a program to the RemoteApp Programs list on a Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server.
Use the following procedure on the RD Session Host server where the RemoteApp programs are configured to determine if a RemoteApp program is enabled for RD Web Access.
Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the RD Session Host server that you plan to configure, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477).
To determine if a RemoteApp program is enabled for RD Web Access
On the RD Session Host server, open RemoteApp Manager. To open RemoteApp Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click RemoteApp Manager.
In the RemoteApp Programs list, verify that a Yes value appears in the RD Web Access column next to the program that you want to make available through RD Web Access.
To change whether a RemoteApp program is available through RD Web Access, do either of the following:
To enable a RemoteApp program for RD Web Access, click the program name, and then click Show in RD Web Access in the Actions pane.
To disable a RemoteApp program for RD Web Access, click the program name, and then click Hide in RD Web Access in the Actions pane.
RemoteApp programs that are enabled for RD Web Access will automatically be available through RemoteApp and Desktop Connection if RD Web Access is configured to use the RD Session Host server as a source for RemoteApp and Desktop Connection.
