RemoteApp Tool

Create and manage RemoteApps hosted on Windows 7, 8, 10 and XP.
(and now, provide a web-interface with RAWeb, or deploy MSIs with RDP2MSI)

RemoteApp is a Microsoft technology that extends Remote Desktop Services to allow seamless display of a remote application (as if it were a native application on the local computer).
Usually, RemoteApps are hosted on Windows Server 2008 (and above), but some smart folk figured out how to host them on Windows 7. This required manually editing the registry and manually creating RDP files. More information on the whole process can be found here.
RemoteApp Tool is a GUI tool that allows you to create/manage hosted RemoteApps on Windows (7, 8, 10, XP and Vista) as well as generate RDP files to use on the clients.

RemoteApp Tool requires:

  • Microsoft .Net Framework 4

  • Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate
  • Windows 8 Enterprise
  • Windows 10 Enterprise or Education
  • Windows XP SP3

  • It also works with Windows Server 2008 and newer.

    Note: If you try to host RemoteApps on any other edition of Windows (eg Win 7/8/10 Professional), the tool will run but RemoteApps will not work. The RDP client will appear to be connecting, then just disappear.
