TS RemoteApp Step-by-Step Guide

Updated: July 7, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

With Terminal Services, organizations can provide access to Windows®-based programs from almost any location to almost any computing device. Terminal Services in Windows Server® 2008 includes Terminal Services RemoteApp (TS RemoteApp). You can use several different methods to deploy RemoteApp programs, such as Terminal Services Web Access (TS Web Access). With TS Web Access, you can provide access to RemoteApp programs through a Web page over the Internet or over an intranet. TS Web Access is also included in Windows Server 2008.

noteNote
In Windows Server 2008 R2, Terminal Services was renamed Remote Desktop Services. To find out what's new in this version and to find the most up-to-date resources, visit the Remote Desktop Services page on the Windows Server TechCenter.

RemoteApp programs are programs that are accessed remotely through Terminal Services and appear as if they are running on the end user's local computer. Instead of being presented to the user in the desktop of the remote terminal server, the RemoteApp program is integrated with the client's desktop, running in its own resizable window with its own entry in the taskbar. Users can run RemoteApp programs side-by-side with their local programs. If a user is running more than one RemoteApp program on the same terminal server, the RemoteApp programs will share the same Terminal Services session.

In Windows Server 2008, users can access RemoteApp programs in several ways, depending on the deployment method that you choose. They can:

  • Access a link to the program on a Web site by using TS Web Access.

  • Double-click a Remote Desktop Protocol (.rdp) file that has been created and distributed by their administrator.

  • Double-click a program icon on their desktop or Start menu that has been created and distributed by their administrator with a Windows Installer (.msi) package.

  • Double-click a file where the file name extension is associated with a RemoteApp program. This can be configured by their administrator with a Windows Installer package.

The .rdp files and Windows Installer packages contain the settings that are needed to run RemoteApp programs. After opening a RemoteApp program on their local computer, the user can interact with the program that is running on the terminal server as if it were running locally.

To access RemoteApp programs that are deployed as .rdp files or as Windows Installer packages, the client computer must be running Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) 6.0 or RDC 6.1. A supported version of the RDC client is included with Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista®. To download RDC 6.0 for Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 2 (SP2), or Windows XP with SP2, see article 925876 in the Microsoft® Knowledge Base.

noteNote
RDC 6.1 (6.0.6001) supports Remote Desktop Protocol 6.1.

To access RemoteApp programs through TS Web Access, the client computer must be running RDC 6.1. RDC 6.1 is included with the following operating systems:

  • Windows Server 2008

  • Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 (SP1)

  • Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3)

This guide is intended for the following audiences:

  • IT planners and analysts who are evaluating the product

  • Enterprise architects

  • IT professionals who deploy or administer terminal servers, line-of-business (LOB) applications, or applications that can be more efficiently deployed with TS RemoteApp

TS RemoteApp is especially useful in scenarios such as the following:

  • Remote users. Users often need to access programs from remote locations, such as while working from home or while traveling. If you want users to access RemoteApp programs over an Internet connection, you can allow access through a Virtual Private Network (VPN), or you can deploy TS RemoteApp together with Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway) to help secure remote access to the programs.

  • Branch offices. In a branch office environment, there may be limited local IT support and limited network bandwidth. By using TS RemoteApp, you can centralize the management of your applications and improve remote program performance in limited bandwidth scenarios.

  • Line-of-business (LOB) applications deployment. Companies often need to run consistent LOB applications on computers that are running different Windows versions and configurations. Instead of deploying the LOB applications to all the computers in the company, which can be expensive in terms of time and cost, you can install the LOB applications on a terminal server and make them available through TS RemoteApp.

  • Application deployment. With TS RemoteApp you do not have to deploy and maintain different versions of the same program for individual computers. If employees need to use multiple versions of a program, you can install those versions on one or more terminal servers, and users can access them through TS RemoteApp.

  • Roaming users. In a company with a flexible desk policy, users can work from different computers. In some cases, the computer where a user is working may not have the necessary programs installed locally. By using TS RemoteApp, you can install the programs on a terminal server and make them available to users as if those programs were installed locally.

Before you configure TS RemoteApp, you should decide how you want to distribute RemoteApp programs to users. You can use either of the following deployment methods:

  • You can make RemoteApp programs available on a Web site by distributing the RemoteApp programs through TS Web Access.

  • You can distribute RemoteApp programs as .rdp files or Windows Installer packages through a file share, or through other distribution mechanisms such as Microsoft Systems Management Server or Active Directory software distribution.

Diagram showing RemoteApp deployment components

If you use TS Web Access, you can deploy RemoteApp programs from a single terminal server or farm, or a link to the full terminal server desktop, directly through TS Web Access. All RemoteApp programs on the terminal server or farm that are configured for TS Web Access will appear on the TS Web Access Web site.

noteNote
Additionally, TS Web Access includes the Remote Desktop Web Connection feature, which allows users to connect from a Web browser to the remote desktop of any server or client computer where they have Remote Desktop access. You can determine whether you want this feature to be available to users. For more information, see Configure Remote Desktop Web Connection behavior.

To deploy RemoteApp programs by using TS Web Access, you must complete the following tasks.

 

Task Reference

1. Configure the server that will host RemoteApp programs. This includes installing Terminal Server, installing programs, and verifying remote connection settings.

Configure the server that will host RemoteApp programs

2. Use TS RemoteApp Manager to add RemoteApp programs that are enabled for TS Web Access, and to configure global deployment settings.

3. Install TS Web Access on the server that you want users to connect to over the Web to access RemoteApp programs.

Install the TS Web Access role service

4. Add the computer account of the TS Web Access server to the TS Web Access Computers group on the terminal server.

Populate the TS Web Access Computers security group

5. Configure the TS Web Access server to populate its list of RemoteApp programs from a single terminal server or single farm.

Configure the data source for TS Web Access

You can also deploy RemoteApp programs through .rdp files or Windows Installer packages that are made available through file sharing, or through other distribution mechanisms such as Microsoft Systems Management Server or Active Directory software distribution. These methods enable you to distribute RemoteApp programs to users without using TS Web Access.

noteNote
If you distribute RemoteApp programs through Windows Installer packages, you can also configure whether the terminal server will take over client file name extensions for the RemoteApp programs. If this is the case, a user can double-click a file where the file name extension is associated with a RemoteApp program.

You must complete the following tasks to prepare RemoteApp programs for distribution through a file share or some other distribution mechanism.

 

Task Reference

1. Configure the server that will host RemoteApp programs. This includes installing Terminal Server, installing programs, and verifying remote connection settings.

Configure the server that will host RemoteApp programs

2. Use TS RemoteApp Manager to add RemoteApp programs and to configure global deployment settings.

Add RemoteApp programs and configure global deployment settings

3. Use TS RemoteApp Manager to create .rdp files or Windows Installer packages from RemoteApp programs.

After you create .rdp files or Windows Installer packages, you can distribute them to users.

Before you can deploy RemoteApp programs to users, you must configure the server to host RemoteApp programs. The following procedures are covered:

noteNote
These procedures apply to an environment where you are using a single terminal server to host RemoteApp programs.

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the terminal server.

  1. Open Server Manager. To open Server Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.

  2. Under Roles Summary, click Add Roles.

  3. On the Before You Begin page of the Add Roles Wizard, click Next.

  4. On the Select Server Roles page, select the Terminal Services check box, and then click Next.

  5. On the Terminal Services page, click Next.

  6. On the Select Role Services page, select the Terminal Server check box, and then click Next.

  7. On the Uninstall and Reinstall Applications for Compatibility page, review the information, and then click Next.

  8. On the Specify Authentication Method for Terminal Server page, select the desired authentication method, and then click Next.

  9. On the Specify Licensing Mode page, select the licensing mode that applies to your Terminal Services environment, and then click Next.

  10. On the Select User Groups Allowed Access To This Terminal Server page, add any users or groups that you want to add to the Remote Desktop Users group, and then click Next.

  11. On the Confirm Installation Selections page, verify that the Terminal Server role service will be installed, and then click Install.

  12. On the Installation Results page, you are prompted to restart the server to finish the installation process. Click Close, and then click Yes to restart the server.

  13. After the server restarts, the Resume Configuration Wizard completes the installation. When you see an Installation succeeded status message on the Installation Results page, click Close.

We recommend that you install programs on the terminal server after you have installed the Terminal Server role service. If you install a program from a Windows Installer package, the program will automatically install in Terminal Server Install mode. If you are installing from another kind of Setup package, use either of the following methods to put the server into Install mode:

  • Use the Install Application on Terminal Server option in Control Panel to install the program.

  • Before you install a program, run the change user /install command from the command line. After the program is installed, run the change user /execute command to exit from Install mode.

If you have programs that are related to each other or have dependencies on each other, we recommend that you install the programs on the same terminal server. For example, we recommend that you install Microsoft Office as a suite instead of installing individual Office programs on separate terminal servers.

You should consider putting individual programs on separate terminal servers in the following circumstances:

  • The program has compatibility issues that may affect other programs.

  • A single program and the number of associated users may fill server capacity.

By default, remote connections are enabled after you install the Terminal Server role service. You can use the following procedure to add users and groups that need to connect to the terminal server, and to verify or to change remote connection settings.

  1. Start the System tool. To do this, click Start, click Run, type control system in the Open box, and then click OK.

  2. Under Tasks, click Remote settings.

  3. In the System Properties dialog box, on the Remote tab, ensure that the Remote Desktop connection setting is configured correctly, depending on your environment. You can select either of the following options:

    • Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure)

    • Allow connections only from computers running Remote Desktop with Network Level Authentication (more secure)

    For more information about the two options, on the Remote tab, click the Help me choose link.

  4. To add the users and groups that need to connect to the terminal server by using Remote Desktop, click Select Users, and then click Add.

    The users and groups that you add are added to the Remote Desktop Users group.

    noteNote
    Members of the local Administrators group can connect even if they are not listed.

  5. When you are finished, click OK to close the System Properties dialog box.

After you have prepared the terminal server to host RemoteApp programs, you can use TS RemoteApp Manager to do the following:

In TS RemoteApp Manager, you can also delete, modify, import RemoteApp programs and settings from another terminal server, or export RemoteApp programs and settings to another terminal server. For more information, see Manage RemoteApp programs and settings.

To make a RemoteApp program available to users through any distribution mechanism, you must add the program to the RemoteApp Programs list. By default, programs that you add to the list are configured to be available through TS Web Access.

  1. Start TS RemoteApp Manager. To do this, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Terminal Services, and then click TS RemoteApp Manager.

  2. In the Actions pane, click Add RemoteApp Programs.

  3. On the Welcome to the RemoteApp Wizard page, click Next.

  4. On the Choose programs to add to the RemoteApp Programs list page, select the check box next to each program that you want to add to the RemoteApp Programs list. You can select multiple programs.

    noteNote
    The programs that are shown on the Choose programs to add to the RemoteApp Programs list page are the programs that are found on the All Users Start menu on the terminal server. If the program that you want to add to the RemoteApp Programs list is not in the list, click Browse, and then specify the location of the program's .exe file.

  5. To configure the properties for a RemoteApp program, click the program name, and then click Properties. You can configure the following:

    • The program name that will appear to users. To change the name, type a new name in the RemoteApp program name box.

    • The path of the program executable file. To change the path, type the new path in the Location box, or click Browse to locate the .exe file.

      noteNote
      You can use system environment variables in the path name. For example, you can substitute %windir% for the explicit path of the Windows folder (such as C:\Windows). You cannot use per user environment variables.

    • The alias for the RemoteApp program. The alias is a unique identifier for the program that defaults to the program's file name (without the extension). We recommend that you do not change this name.

    • Whether the RemoteApp program is available through TS Web Access. By default, the RemoteApp program is available through TS Web Access setting is enabled. To change the setting, select or clear the check box.

    • Whether command-line arguments are allowed, not allowed, or whether to always use the same command-line arguments.

    • The program icon that will be used. To change the icon, click Change Icon.

  6. When you are finished configuring program properties, click OK, and then click Next.

  7. On the Review Settings page, review the settings, and then click Finish.

    The programs that you selected should appear in the RemoteApp Programs list.

You can configure global deployment settings that apply to all RemoteApp programs in the RemoteApp Programs list. These settings will apply to any RemoteApp program that you make available through TS Web Access. Additionally, these settings will be used as the default settings if you create .rdp files or Windows Installer packages from any of the listed RemoteApp programs.

noteNote
Any changes to deployment settings that you make when you use TS RemoteApp Manager to create .rdp files or Windows Installer packages will override the global settings.

These global deployment settings include:

To define how users will connect to the terminal server (or terminal server farm) to access RemoteApp programs, you can configure terminal server deployment settings.

  1. In the Actions pane of TS RemoteApp Manager, click Terminal Server Settings. (Or, in the Overview pane, next to Terminal Server Settings, click Change.)

  2. On the Terminal Server tab, under Connection settings, accept or modify the server or farm name, the RDP port number, and server authentication settings.

    ImportantImportant
    If the Require server authentication check box is selected, consider the following:

    • If any client computers are running Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2, or Windows XP with SP2, you must configure the terminal server to use a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate. (You cannot use a self-signed certificate.)

    • If the RemoteApp program is for intranet use, and all client computers are running either Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista, you do not have to configure the terminal server to use an SSL certificate. In this case, Network Level Authentication is used.

  3. To provide a link to the full terminal server desktop through TS Web Access, under Remote desktop access, select the Show a remote desktop connection to this terminal server in TS Web Access check box.

  4. Under Access to unlisted programs, choose either of the following:

    • Do not allow users to start unlisted program on initial connection (Recommended)

      To help protect against malicious users, or a user unintentionally starting a program from an .rdp file on initial connection, we recommended that you select this setting.

      ImportantImportant
      This setting does not prevent users from starting unlisted programs remotely after they connect to the terminal server by using the RemoteApp program. For example, if Microsoft Word is in the RemoteApp Programs list and Microsoft Internet Explorer is not, if a user starts a remote Word session, and then clicks a hyperlink in a Word document, they can start Internet Explorer.

    • Allow users to start both listed and unlisted programs on initial connection

      CautionCaution
      If you choose this option, users can start any program remotely from an .rdp file on initial connection, not just those programs in the RemoteApp Programs list. To help protect against malicious users, or a user unintentionally starting a program from an .rdp file, we recommend that you do not select this setting.

  5. When you are finished, click OK.

To define whether users will connect to the terminal server across a firewall through TS Gateway, you can configure TS Gateway deployment settings. For more information about TS Gateway, see the TS Gateway Step-by-Step Guide.

  1. In the Actions pane of TS RemoteApp Manager, click TS Gateway Settings. (Or, in the Overview pane, next to TS Gateway Settings, click Change.)

  2. On the TS Gateway tab, configure the desired TS Gateway behavior. You can configure whether to automatically detect TS Gateway server settings, to use TS Gateway server settings that you specify, or to not use a TS Gateway server.

    If you select Automatically detect TS Gateway server settings, the client tries to use Group Policy settings to determine the behavior of client connections to TS Gateway.

    noteNote
    For more information about client Group Policy settings, see the Help topic "Using Group Policy to Manage Client Connections Through TS Gateway." (To open TS Gateway Help on a Windows Server 2008-based server, click Start, click Run, type hh ts_gateway.chm, and then click OK.)

    If you select Use these TS Gateway server settings, do the following:

    1. Configure the TS Gateway server name and the logon method.

      ImportantImportant
      The server name must match what is specified in the SSL certificate for the TS Gateway server.

    2. If you want the connection to try to use the same user credentials to access both the TS Gateway server and the terminal server, select the Use the same user credentials for TS Gateway and terminal server check box. However, users may still receive two prompts for credentials if conflicting credentials exist from any source such as Group Policy settings, and those credentials do not work. They may also receive two prompts for credentials if default credentials are used for the connection and those credentials do not work.

    3. If you want the client computer to automatically detect when TS Gateway is required, select the Bypass TS Gateway server for local addresses check box. (Selecting this option optimizes client performance.)

      To always use a TS Gateway server for client connections, clear the Bypass TS Gateway server for local addresses check box.

  3. When you are finished, click OK.

You can specify common Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) settings for RemoteApp connections, such as device and resource redirection, and some user display settings. These settings will apply when a user connects to a RemoteApp program through TS Web Access, or when you create an .rdp file or a Windows Installer package from an existing RemoteApp program.

  1. In the Overview pane of TS RemoteApp Manager, next to RDP Settings, click Change.

  2. Under Devices and resources, configure which devices and resources on the client computer you want to make available in the remote session.

  3. Under User experience, choose whether to enable font smoothing and the desired color depth.

  4. When you are finished, click Apply.

    noteNote
    To configure additional RDP settings, such as audio redirection, click the Custom RDP Settings tab. For more information, see Configure custom RDP settings (optional).

  5. To close the RemoteApp Deployment Settings dialog box, click OK.

noteNote
If you do not sign .rdp files with a digital signature, or if you sign .rdp files with a digital signature that clients do not recognize (such as a certificate from a private certification authority), some redirection settings that you specify in TS RemoteApp Manager may be overridden by the client. For example, if you enable all redirection settings on the Common RDP Settings tab, and a user connects to an .rdp file that is not signed, disk drives, and supported Plug and Play devices will not be redirected automatically. These devices and resources will only be redirected if the user enables these redirection settings in the RemoteApp warning dialog box that appears when they try to connect. This default behavior helps to reduce potential security vulnerabilities. (Note that the same behavior occurs if you enable serial port redirection on the Custom RDP Settings tab.)

You can specify custom RDP settings for RemoteApp connections, such as audio redirection. These settings will apply when a user connects to a RemoteApp program through TS Web Access, or when you create a Windows Installer package or .rdp file from an existing RemoteApp program.

noteNote
You can use custom RDP settings to configure the working directory for RemoteApp programs. By default, the working directory for a RemoteApp program is the same location as the program executable file. If you configure the working directory as a custom RDP setting, the setting will apply to all RemoteApp programs that are available through TS Web Access, and to any .rdp files or Windows Installer packages that you create from a RemoteApp program. If you want to customize the working directory for RemoteApp programs that you plan to distribute as .rdp files or Windows Installer packages, you can add the working directory as a custom RDP setting, create the files from the RemoteApp programs, and then clear the working directory custom RDP setting.

  1. In the Overview pane of TS RemoteApp Manager, next to RDP Settings, click Change.

  2. On the Custom RDP Settings tab, type or copy the custom RDP settings that you want to use into the Custom RDP settings box.

    To copy settings from an existing .rdp file, open the file in a text editor such as Notepad, and then copy the desired settings.

    ImportantImportant
    You cannot override settings that are available in the global deployment settings in TS RemoteApp Manager. If you do so, you will be prompted to remove those settings when you click Apply.

    To create an .rdp file to copy the settings from, follow these steps:

    1. Open the RDC client, and then click Options.

    2. Configure the settings that you want, such as audio redirection.

    3. When you are finished, on the General tab, click Save As, and then save the .rdp file.

    4. Open the .rdp file in Notepad, and then copy the desired settings into the Custom RDP settings box on the Custom RDP Settings tab.

  3. When you have finished adding the settings that you want, click Apply.

  4. If the Error with Custom RDP Settings dialog box appears, do the following:

    1. Click Remove to automatically remove the settings that are either not valid or cannot be overridden, or click OK to remove the settings manually.

    2. After the settings are removed, click Apply again.

  5. To close the RemoteApp Deployment Settings dialog box, click OK.

You can use a digital signature to sign .rdp files that are used for RemoteApp connections to the terminal server. This includes the .rdp files that are used for connections through TS Web Access to RemoteApp programs on the terminal server and to the terminal server desktop.

ImportantImportant
To connect to a RemoteApp program by using a digitally signed .rdp file, the client must be running RDC 6.1. (The RDC 6.1 [6.0.6001] client supports Remote Desktop Protocol 6.1.)

If you use a digital certificate, the cryptographic signature on the connection file provides verifiable information about your identity as its publisher. This enables clients to recognize your organization as the source of the RemoteApp program or the remote desktop connection, and allows them to make more informed trust decisions about whether to start the connection. This helps protect against the use of .rdp files that were altered by a malicious user.

You can sign .rdp files that are used for RemoteApp connections by using a Server Authentication certificate (SSL certificate) or a Code Signing certificate. You can obtain SSL and Code Signing certificates from public certification authorities (CAs), or from an enterprise CA in your public key infrastructure hierarchy.

If you are already using an SSL certificate for terminal server or TS Gateway connections, you can use the same certificate to sign .rdp files. However, if users will connect to RemoteApp programs from public or home computers, you must use either of the following:

  • A certificate from a public certification authority (CA) that participates in the Microsoft Root Certificate Program Members program.

  • If you are using an enterprise CA, your enterprise CA-issued certificate must be co-signed by a public CA that participates in the Microsoft Root Certification Program Members program.

  1. In the Actions pane of TS RemoteApp Manager, click Digital Signature Settings. (Or, in the Overview pane, next to Digital Signature Settings, click Change.)

  2. Select the Sign with a digital certificate check box.

  3. In the Digital certificate details box, click Change.

  4. In the Select Certificate dialog box, select the certificate that you want to use, and then click OK.

    noteNote
    The Select Certificate dialog box is populated by certificates that are located in the local computer's certificates store or in your personal certificate store. The certificate that you want to use must be located in one of these stores.

You can use Group Policy to configure clients to always recognize RemoteApp programs from a particular publisher as trusted. You can also configure whether clients will block RemoteApp programs and remote desktop connections from external or unknown sources. By using these policy settings, you can reduce the number and complexity of security decisions that users face. This reduces the chances of inadvertent user actions that may lead to security vulnerabilities.

The relevant Group Policy settings are located in the Local Group Policy Editor at the following location, in both the Computer Configuration and in the User Configuration node:

Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Remote Desktop Connection Client

The available policy settings are:

  • Specify SHA1 thumbprints of certificates representing trusted .rdp publishers

    This policy setting allows you to specify a list of Secure Hash Algorithm 1 (SHA1) certificate thumbprints that represent trusted .rdp file publishers. If you enable this policy setting, any certificate with an SHA1 thumbprint that matches a thumbprint on the list will be considered trusted.

  • Allow .rdp files from valid publishers and user’s default .rdp settings

    This policy setting allows you to specify whether users can run .rdp files from a publisher that signed the file with a valid certificate. This policy setting also controls whether the user can start an RDP session by using default .rdp settings, such as when a user directly opens the RDC client without specifying an .rdp file.

  • Allow .rdp files from unknown publishers

    This policy setting allows you to specify whether users can run unsigned .rdp files and .rdp files from unknown publishers on the client computer.

ImportantImportant
To use these Group Policy settings, the client computer must be running RDC 6.1.

For more information about these policy settings, view the Group Policy Explain text in the Local Group Policy Editor.

In TS RemoteApp Manager, you can make changes to an existing RemoteApp program, or you can remove the program from the list. Additionally, you can export or import the RemoteApp Programs list and the global deployment settings to or from another terminal server.

After you have added a program to the RemoteApp Programs list, you can change the deployment settings for all RemoteApp programs, change the properties of a single RemoteApp program, or delete the RemoteApp program from the list.

  • To change deployment settings for all RemoteApp programs, in the Actions pane of TS RemoteApp Manager, click Terminal Server Settings, TS Gateway Settings, or Digital Signature Settings. (Or, click one of the Change options in the Overview pane. You can also change custom RDP settings in the Overview pane.)

    ImportantImportant
    If you make any changes, the changes will not affect .rdp files or Windows Installer packages that you already created by using TS RemoteApp Manager.

  • To change the properties of a single RemoteApp program, click the program in the RemoteApp Programs list, and then in the Actions pane for the program, click Properties.

    noteNote
    You cannot change the properties of an existing .rdp file or Windows Installer package by using TS RemoteApp Manager. Instead, you must click Create .rdp File or Create Windows Installer Package in the Actions pane to create a new .rdp file or Windows Installer package that has the desired properties.

  • To change whether the RemoteApp program will be available from TS Web Access, click the program, and then click Show in TS Web Access or Hide in TS Web Access in the Actions pane.

  • To delete a program in the RemoteApp Programs list, click the RemoteApp program, and then in the Actions pane for the program, click Remove. Click Yes to confirm the deletion.

    noteNote
    When you delete a program in the RemoteApp Programs list, any .rdp files or Windows Installer packages that you created from the RemoteApp program are not deleted.

You can copy the RemoteApp Programs list and deployment settings from one terminal server to another terminal server. You might want to do this if you want to configure multiple terminal servers identically to host RemoteApp programs, such as in a terminal server farm.

  1. Start TS RemoteApp Manager.

  2. In the Actions pane, click Export RemoteApp Settings.

  3. Select either of the following options:

    • Export the RemoteApp Programs list and settings to another terminal server

      If you select this option, in the Terminal server name box, enter the name of the terminal server that you want to export the settings to, and then click OK. (For the export operation to succeed, the source terminal server must have Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) access to the target terminal server.)

      ImportantImportant
      When you click OK, the RemoteApp Programs list and deployment settings will be automatically overwritten on the target terminal server.

    • Export the RemoteApp Programs list and settings to a file

      If you select this option, click OK. In the Save As dialog box, specify a location to save the .tspub file, and then click Save.

  1. Start TS RemoteApp Manager.

  2. In the Actions pane, click Import RemoteApp Settings.

  3. Select either of the following options:

    • Import the RemoteApp Programs list and settings from another terminal server

      If you select this option, in the Terminal server name box, enter the name of the terminal server that you want to import the settings from, and then click OK. The settings are imported directly into TS RemoteApp Manager. (For the import operation to succeed, the source terminal server must have WMI access to the target terminal server.)

    • Import the RemoteApp Programs list and settings from a file

      If you select this option, click OK. In the Open dialog box, locate and then click the .tspub file that you want to import, and then click Open.

If you import a configuration, and the target terminal server does not have a program in the RemoteApp Programs list installed or the program is installed in a different folder, the program will appear in the RemoteApp Programs list. However, the name will be displayed with strikethrough text.

noteNote
Only the RemoteApp Programs list and deployment settings are exported or imported. Any .rdp files or Windows Installer packages that were created from the programs will not be exported or imported. You must create new .rdp files or Windows Installer packages on each terminal server unless the server is a member of a terminal server farm. If you specified a farm name when you created the .rdp files or Windows Installer packages, and the server where you want to copy the files to is a member of the same terminal server farm, you can manually copy the files.

The following section includes instructions about how to deploy RemoteApp programs to users through TS Web Access or through a file share or other distribution mechanism.

With TS Web Access, users can access RemoteApp programs from a Web site over the Internet or from an intranet. To start a RemoteApp program, they just click the program icon. TS Web Access provides a solution that works with minimal configuration. The default TS Web Access Web page includes a customizable Web Part, which can be incorporated into a customized Web page.

noteNote
For information about client requirements, see Client requirements and configuration.

To use TS Web Access to deploy RemoteApp programs, you must do the following:

  1. Install the TS Web Access role service.

  2. Populate the TS Web Access Computers security group.

  3. Specify the terminal server from which to populate the list of RemoteApp programs that will appear in the TS Web Access Web Part.

You must install the TS Web Access role service on the server that you want users to connect to over the Web to access RemoteApp programs. When you install the TS Web Access role service, Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 is also installed.

The server where you install TS Web Access acts as the Web server. The server does not have to be a terminal server.

noteNote
By default, when you install TS Web Access, the TS Web Access Web site installs to the Default Web Site in IIS. To change the default install location of the site, you can configure a different location in the registry. You must do this before you install the TS Web Access role service. For more information, see the Change the install location of the default TS Web Access Web site section later in this guide.

Membership in the local Administrators group is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

  1. Open Server Manager. To open Server Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.

  2. If the Terminal Services role is already installed:

    1. Under Roles Summary, click Terminal Services.

    2. Under Role Services, click Add Role Services.

    3. On the Select Role Services page, select the TS Web Access check box.

    If the Terminal Services role is not already installed:

  7. In the Enter the object names to select box, specify the computer account of the TS Web Access server, and then click OK.

  8. Click OK to close the TS Web Access Computers Properties dialog box.

You can configure TS Web Access to populate the list of RemoteApp programs that appear in the Web Part from a specific terminal server or terminal server farm.

By default, TS Web Access populates its list of RemoteApp programs from a single terminal server, and points to the local host. The Web Part is populated by all RemoteApp programs that are enabled for TS Web Access on that terminal server's RemoteApp Programs list.

To complete this procedure, you must log on to the TS Web Access server by using the local Administrator account or an account that is a member of the TS Web Access Administrators group on the TS Web Access server.

  1. Connect to the TS Web Access Web site. To do this, use either of the following methods:

    • On the TS Web Access server, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Terminal Services, and then click TS Web Access Administration.

    • Use Internet Explorer to connect to the TS Web Access Web site. By default, the Web site is located at the following address, where server_name is the name of the TS Web Access server:

         http://server_name/ts

  2. Log on to the site by using either the local Administrator account, or an account that is a member of the local TS Web Access Administrators group. (If you are already logged on to the computer as one of these accounts, you are not prompted for credentials.)

  3. On the title bar, click the Configuration tab.

    noteNote
    If you access the TS Web Access Web site by using the TS Web Access Administration option, the page automatically opens to the Configuration tab.

  4. In the Editor Zone area, in the Terminal server name box, enter the name of the terminal server that you want to use as the data source.

  5. Click Apply to apply the changes.

To test TS Web Access, see Connect to TS Web Access.

By default, you can access the TS Web Access Web site at the following location, where server_name is the NetBIOS name or the fully qualified domain name of the Web server where you installed TS Web Access:

   http://server_name/ts

If you connect to TS Web Access from a public computer, such as a computer in an "Internet café," you should clear the I am using a private computer that complies with my organization's security policy check box that appears in the lower-right corner of the Web Part. In public mode, you are not provided with the option to save your credentials, and the caching of bitmaps is not enabled.

To connect to TS Web Access, the client computer must be running RDC 6.1. RDC 6.1 is included with the following operating systems:

  • Windows Server 2008

  • Windows Vista with SP1

  • Windows XP with SP3

Additionally, the Terminal Services ActiveX Client control must be enabled. The ActiveX control is included with RDC 6.1.

If you are running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista with SP1, and you receive a warning message on the Internet Explorer Information bar about the site being restricted from showing certain content, click the message line, point to Add-on Disabled, and then click Run ActiveX Control. When you do this, you may see a security warning. Make sure that the publisher for the ActiveX control is "Microsoft Corporation" before you click Run.

noteNote
If the Internet Explorer Information bar does not appear, and you cannot connect to TS Web Access, you can enable the Terminal Services ActiveX control by using the Manage Add-ons tool on the Tools menu of Internet Explorer. The add-on appears as Microsoft Terminal Services Client Control.

If you are running Windows XP with SP3, when you first access the TS Web Access site, the page displays an ActiveX control not installed or not enabled error message. Use the following procedure to enable the ActiveX control.

  1. Connect to the TS Web Access site, and then enter your logon credentials.

  2. Do either of the following, depending on the version of Internet Explorer that you are running.

    • If you are using Internet Explorer 7, on the Tools menu, point to Manage Add-ons, and then click Enable or Disable Add-ons.

    • If you are using Internet Explorer 6, on the Tools menu, click Manage Add-ons.

    The Manage Add-ons dialog box appears. Make sure that the Show list is set to Add-ons currently loaded in Internet Explorer.

  3. Under Disabled, click either Microsoft Terminal Services Client Control (redist) or Microsoft RDP Client Control (redist)--whichever is listed.

  4. Under Settings, click Enable. (If you are running Internet Explorer 6, click OK in response to the message saying that you may need to restart Internet Explorer for the changes to take effect.)

    noteNote
    If the ActiveX control is listed two times, enable both instances.

  5. Click OK to close the Manage Add-ons dialog box. (If you are running Internet Explorer 7, click OK in response to the message saying that you may need to restart Internet Explorer for the changes to take effect.)

    Any available RemoteApp programs should appear on the TS Web Access Web site.

You can deploy RemoteApp programs to users by making .rdp files or Windows Installer packages available from a file share or through other distribution mechanisms. You can use TS RemoteApp Manager to create the .rdp files or Windows Installer packages from RemoteApp programs that are in the RemoteApp Programs list.

You can use the RemoteApp Wizard to create an .rdp file from any program in the RemoteApp Programs list.

  1. Start TS RemoteApp Manager. To do this, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Terminal Services, and then click TS RemoteApp Manager.

  2. In the RemoteApp Programs list, click the program that you want to create an .rdp file for. To select multiple programs, press and hold the CTRL key when you click each program name.

  3. In the Actions pane for the program or selected programs, click Create .rdp file.

    noteNote
    If you selected multiple programs, the settings described in the rest of this procedure apply to all of the selected programs. A separate .rdp file is created for each program.

  4. On the Welcome to the Remote App Wizard page, click Next.

  5. On the Specify Package Settings page, do the following:

    1. In the Enter the location to save the packages box, accept the default location or click Browse to specify a new location to save the .rdp file.

    2. In the Terminal server settings area, click Change to modify the terminal server or farm name, the RDP port number, and the Require server authentication setting. (For more information about these settings, see Configure terminal server settings.) When you are finished, click OK.

    3. In the TS Gateway settings area, click Change to modify or to configure whether clients will use a TS Gateway server to connect to the target terminal server across a firewall. (For more information about these settings, see Configure TS Gateway settings.) When you are finished, click OK.

      noteNote
      For more information about TS Gateway, see the TS Gateway Step-by-Step Guide.

    4. To digitally sign the .rdp file, in the Certificate Settings section, click Change to select or to change the certificate to use. Select the certificate that you want to use, and then click OK. (For more information about these settings, see Configure digital signature settings (optional).)

  6. When you are finished, click Next.

  7. On the Review Settings page, click Finish.

    When the wizard is finished, the folder where the .rdp file was saved opens in a new window. You can confirm that the .rdp file was created.

You can use the RemoteApp Wizard to create a Windows Installer (.msi) package from any program in the RemoteApp Programs list.

  1. Start TS RemoteApp Manager. To do this, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Terminal Services, and then click TS RemoteApp Manager.

  2. In the RemoteApp Programs list, click the program that you want to create a Windows Installer package for. To select multiple programs, press and hold the CTRL key when you click each program name.

  3. In the Actions pane for the program or selected programs, click Create Windows Installer package.

    noteNote
    If you selected multiple programs, the settings described in the rest of this procedure apply to all of the selected programs. A separate Windows Installer package is created for each program.

  4. On the Welcome to the RemoteApp Wizard page, click Next.

  5. On the Specify Package Settings page, do the following:

    1. In the Enter the location to save the packages box, accept the default location or click Browse to specify a new location to save the Windows Installer package.

    2. In the Terminal server settings area, click Change to modify the terminal server or farm name, the RDP port number, and the Require server authentication setting. (For more information about these settings, see Configure terminal server settings.) When you are finished, click OK.

    3. In the TS Gateway settings area, click Change to modify or to configure whether clients will use a TS Gateway server to connect to the target terminal server across a firewall. (For more information about these settings, see Configure TS Gateway settings.) When you are finished, click OK.

      noteNote
      For more information about TS Gateway, see the TS Gateway Step-by-Step Guide.

    4. To digitally sign the file, in the Certificate Settings section, click Change to select or to change the certificate to use. Select the certificate that you want to use, and then click OK. (For more information about these settings, see Configure digital signature settings (optional).)

  6. When you are finished, click Next.

  7. On the Configure Distribution Package page, do the following:

    1. In the Shortcut icons area, specify where the shortcut icon for the program will appear on client computers.

    2. In the Take over client extensions area, configure whether to take over client file name extensions for the program.

      If you associate the file name extensions on the client computer with the RemoteApp program, all file name extensions that are handled by the program on the terminal server will also be associated on the client computer with the RemoteApp program. For example, if you add Microsoft Word as a RemoteApp program, and you configure the option to take over client file name extensions, any file name extensions on the client computer that Word takes over will be associated with Remote Word. This means that any existing program on the client computer will no longer handle file name extensions such as .doc and .dot. Note that users are not prompted whether the terminal server should take over file extensions for the program.

      To view what file name extensions are associated with a program on the terminal server, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Default Programs. Click Associate a file type or protocol with a program to view the file name extensions and their default associated program.

      CautionCaution
      Do not install Windows Installer packages that were created with this setting enabled on the terminal server itself. If you do, clients that use the Windows Installer package may not be able to start the associated RemoteApp program.

  8. After you have configured the properties of the distribution package, click Next.

  9. On the Review Settings page, click Finish.

    When the wizard is finished, the folder where the Windows Installer package was saved opens in a new window. You can confirm that the Windows Installer package was created.

By using TS RemoteApp together with TS Gateway, you can enable users to connect from the Internet to individual programs on a terminal server without having to first establish a virtual private network (VPN) connection. (Alternatively, if you do not want to deploy TS Gateway, you can make RemoteApp programs available through a VPN solution.) Depending on the deployment method that you choose, remote users can connect to a program by opening an .rdp file, by clicking a shortcut to a Windows Installer package on their desktop or Start menu, or by accessing a RemoteApp program on a Web page through TS Web Access.

To make RemoteApp programs available from the Internet through TS Gateway, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure that you meet the following prerequisites:

    • You must have already deployed RemoteApp programs on the terminal server.

    • If you want to make RemoteApp programs available from the Internet through TS Web Access, you must have successfully deployed TS Web Access in an intranet environment.

  2. Review the TS Gateway Step-by-Step Guide.

  3. Following the procedures in the TS Gateway Step-by-Step Guide, deploy and configure TS Gateway. When you do so, make sure that you do the following:

    1. Create a Terminal Services connection authorization policy (TS CAP) to define the list of user groups that can connect to the terminal servers that host the RemoteApp programs. For more information, see the "Create a TS CAP for the TS Gateway server" section of the TS Gateway Step-by-Step Guide.

    2. Create a Terminal Services resource authorization policy (TS RAP) that provides access to the terminal servers that host the RemoteApp programs.

      When you create the TS RAP, add the user groups that you defined in the TS CAP. Also, create a new TS Gateway-managed computer group that contains both the NetBIOS names and the fully qualified domain names (FQDNs) of the terminal servers that host the RemoteApp programs.

      noteNote
      If you are using a terminal server farm, specify the name of the farm, and not the individual farm members.

      For more information, see the "Create a TS RAP and specify computers that users can connect to through the TS Gateway server" section of the TS Gateway Step-by-Step Guide.

  4. Configure TS Gateway settings in TS RemoteApp Manager (either in the global deployment settings or when you create an .rdp file or Windows Installer package). When you do so, make sure that you specify the FQDN of the TS Gateway server.

    When you configure global deployment settings, the changes will be reflected immediately on the TS Web Access Web site.

    noteNote
    If you have previously created .rdp files and Windows Installer packages, the new settings will not be reflected in those packages. You must create new packages with the correct settings, and then distribute them to users.

  5. To allow Internet access to RemoteApp programs through TS Web Access, configure firewall and authentication settings. For more information, see Configure the TS Web Access server to allow access from the Internet in the following section.

To allow users to access the TS Web Access server from the Internet, the recommended configuration is to place both the TS Gateway server and the TS Web Access server in the perimeter network, with the terminal servers that host RemoteApp programs behind the internal firewall.

Alternatively, you can deploy TS Web Access on the internal network, and then make the Web site available through Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server. For more information about Web publishing through ISA Server 2006, see Publishing Concepts in ISA Server 2006.

If you deploy TS Web Access in the perimeter network, you must configure your firewall to allow Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) traffic from the TS Web Access server to the terminal server. You must ensure that TCP port 135 is open for WMI-related DCOM traffic. To control the other ports that are used for WMI traffic, you can configure a fixed port. For information about how to do this, see "Setting Up a Fixed Port for WMI" in MSDN. To use this procedure on a Windows Server 2008-based server, note the following additional information:

  • If you are not logged on by using the local Administrator account, you must run the commands from an elevated command prompt. To open an elevated command prompt, click Start, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

  • The procedure shows how to configure TCP port 24158 for WMI traffic. By default, the winmgmt -standalonehost command moves the Windows Management Instrumentation service (Winmgmt) to a standalone Svchost process that has a fixed DCOM endpoint of "ncacn_ip_tcp.0.24158".

    To specify a different port number, do not use the winmgmt -standalonehost command. Instead, you must do the following.

    1. Use Component Services to configure the fixed DCOM endpoint for WMI to the port that you want. To do this, follow these steps:

      1. Open Component Services. To do this, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Component Services.

      2. In the console tree, expand Component Services, expand Computers, expand My Computer, and then click DCOM Config.

      3. In the middle pane, right-click Windows Management and Instrumentation, and then click Properties.

      4. Click the Endpoints tab, and then click either Properties or Add, depending on whether an existing custom entry already exists.

      5. Click Use static endpoint, enter the port number to use, and then click OK two times.

    2. Restart the Winmgmt service for the change to take effect. To restart the service, run the commands net stop winmgmt and net start winmgmt from the command line.

    3. Run the netsh command with the port parameter set to the same port that you specified in Component Services. (See the following bullet point for more information about the netsh command syntax.)

  • When you run the netsh command to create a firewall rule, you must include the protocol parameter and specify TCP as the protocol type. The following is an example of the command syntax:

    netsh firewall add portopening protocol=TCP port=24158 profile=domain name=WMIFixedPort

    noteNote
    The profile parameter indicates whether the firewall rule applies to the Domain, Private, or Public profile. For more information see "Understanding Windows Firewall with Advanced Security profiles" in Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Help.

Additionally, the TS Web Access Web site must be configured to use Windows authentication. By default, Windows authentication is enabled for the TS Web Access Web site.

  1. On the TS Web Access server, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

  2. In the left pane of Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, expand the server name, expand Sites, expand Default Web Site, and then click TS.

  3. In the middle pane, under IIS, double-click Authentication.

  4. Ensure that Windows Authentication is set to Enabled. If it is not, right-click Windows Authentication, and then click Enable.

noteNote
If you placed TS Web Access in a custom Web site, you must ensure that the authentication method that is used for the Web site can map to the user's Windows account. You can do this by using integrated Windows authentication on the custom Web site.

If a user has administrative access to the terminal server where the RemoteApp programs are installed, when the user starts a RemoteApp program, the Server Manager tool and Initial Configuration Tasks also start in the RemoteApp session.

You can control this behavior by using the following Group Policy settings in the Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Server Manager node of the Local Group Policy Editor on the terminal server:

  • Do not display Initial Configuration Tasks window automatically at logon

    You must enable this policy setting to prevent the Initial Configuration Tasks window from opening when a user with administrative access starts a RemoteApp session.

  • Do not display Server Manager automatically at logon

    You must enable this policy setting to prevent Server Manager from opening when a user with administrative access starts a RemoteApp session.

Terminal Services Remote Desktop Web Connection enables a user to connect to the desktop of a remote computer from the TS Web Access Web site. To connect to a remote computer, the following conditions must be true:

  • The remote computer must be configured to accept Remote Desktop connections.

  • The user must be a member of the Remote Desktop Users group on the remote computer.

A user can access Remote Desktop Web Connection by clicking the Remote Desktop tab on the TS Web Access page. As an administrator, you can configure whether the Remote Desktop tab is available to users. Additionally, you can configure settings such as which TS Gateway server to use, and the default device and resource redirection options.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

  1. On the TS Web Access server, start Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. To do this, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

  2. In the left pane, expand the server name, expand Sites, expand Default Web Site, and then click TS.

  3. In the middle pane, under ASP.NET, double-click Application Settings.

  4. To change Remote Desktop Web Connection settings, modify the values in the Application Settings pane.

    • To configure a default TS Gateway server, double-click DefaultTSGateway, enter the fully qualified domain name of the server in the Value box (for example, server1.contoso.com), and then click OK.

    • To specify the TS Gateway authentication method, double-click GatewayCredentialsSource, type the number that corresponds to the desired authentication method in the Value box, and then click OK. The possible values include:

      0 = Ask for password (NTLM)

      1 = Smart card

      4 = Allow user to select later

    • To configure whether the Remote Desktop tab appears on the TS Web Access page, double-click ShowDesktops. In the Value box, type true to show the Remote Desktop tab, or type false to hide the Remote Desktop tab. When you are finished, click OK.

    • To configure default device and resource redirection settings, double-click the setting that you want to modify (xClipboard, xDriveRedirection, xPnPRedirection, xPortRedirection, or xPrinterRedirection). In the Value box, type true to enable the redirection setting by default, or type false to disable the redirection setting by default, and then click OK.

  5. When you are finished, close IIS Manager.

    Your changes should take effect immediately on the TS Web Access Web site. If the Web page is open, refresh the page to view the changes.

noteNote
You can also configure these settings by modifying the %windir%\Web\ts\Web.config file directly by using a text editor such as Notepad.

By default, when you install TS Web Access, the TS Web Access Web site installs to the Default Web Site in IIS (to the /TS virtual path). To specify a different Web site to install TS Web Access, you can configure a different target Web site in the registry. You must do this before you install the TS Web Access role service.

CautionCaution
Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

  1. If you do not already have IIS installed, install IIS. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Start Server Manager. To open Server Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.

    2. Under Roles Summary, click Add Roles.

    3. On the Before You Begin page, click Next.

    4. On the Select Server Roles page, select the Web Server (IIS) check box, click Add Required Features, and then click Next.

    5. On the Web Server (IIS) page, click Next.

    6. On the Select Role Services page, click Next.

    7. On the Confirm Installation Selections page, click Install.

    8. On the Installation Results page, verify that the installation succeeded, and then click Close.

  2. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

  3. In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, expand the server name, right-click Sites, and then click Add Web Site.

  4. In the Add Web Site dialog box, add the information for the new Web site, such as the site name. Ensure that you do the following:

    • In the Physical path box, specify the path C:\Windows\Web, where "C:" represents the drive where you installed Windows.

    • To not conflict with the Default Web Site, you should either specify a different IP address in the IP address list, or specify a port other than port 80 in the Port box. (If you specify another port, ensure that the firewall is configured to permit HTTP or HTTPS traffic on that port, depending on your configuration.)

  5. When you are finished, click OK.

  6. Start Registry Editor. To do this, click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

  7. Locate the following registry subkey:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft

  8. To specify a new install location for the TS Web Access Web site, do the following:

    1. Right-click Microsoft, point to New, and then click Key.

    2. Type Terminal Server Web Access as the subkey name, and then press ENTER.
