Deploy an RDS Farm Windows 2012R2/2016/2019

Publish RemoteApps

The programs published in RemoteApp allow you to launch programs from Remote Desktop Session Host servers by giving the user the impression that it is running from his or her computer. Only the program window is displayed.

This solution has the advantage of using the power of the servers and facilitates the administration by needing to update only the servers. In the context of deployment of new post, this solution avoids having to install all the software.

Using RemoteApps can confuse users if they are not well informed about the operation. If the redirection of user documents is not in place, the files saved by the application will not be available on the computer.
