  • You can specify an application to be launched when the Terminal Session is created, in this case a client will see a terminal session with that application only, I mean there will not be an explorer shell, but it is not the same as RemoteApp.
    (User Properties > Environment tab > Start the following programm at logon )

    Or you can install Citrix XenApp (Presentation Server) on your Windows 2003 box, in this case you can get a full functionality of delivered application (the app will runn on the server but for the user it will look like the app is running on the local machine)

    I already described how you can achieve this. Maybe you are a bit confused with the termins. RDP is a protocol, RDP client is the client used to connect to the terminal server. Terminal server can be called any machnie to which you are connecting, for example if you are connecting to the Windows XP machine over RDP protocol, using RDP client, in this case that Windows XP PC acts as a Terminal Server.

    Or there can be a dedicated Terminal Services Server, which can handle lots of connections and can manage those connections.

  • Hi,

    In order to achieve this you need TS RemoteApp

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753844%28WS.10%29.aspx

    It is supported in Windows 2008 and 2008 R2
