Adding network shared folder to RemoteApps

    Question

  • I just set up a RemoteApps server for a client and things are working pretty well. The client wants one more thing added. Even though network shared folders are available through File/Open or File/Save in applications available in RemoteApps, the client wants one specific shared folder to appear in the list of applications when logged in to the RemoteApps website.

    Is this possible? If so, how is it done?

  • Hi,

    The simplest and fastest way is to publish "c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe d:" this is the recommanded way from Citrix as publish explorer.exe is not recommanded by Microsoft.

    A Citrix link about this : http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX922603

    There is no reason for not working in RDS...

    Hope this help,

  • Create a shortcut on the server, go into RemoteApp, add a new app and point to the shortcut.

    .

    That didn't work. It won't accept shortcuts to shared folders or drive mappings.

    That did work though I had to just add iexplore.exe at first and then edit the app's properties and add the drive mapping as a command line parameter.

    I just wish I could change the icon from the blue e but there's no way to do that for the app in the collection, it's drawn from the executable.
