I am new to SGD and I am trying to get a Windows app to launch in an independent window - or to launch period.
I can get a full windows desktop to start but when I specify an application command under the launch tab and change the window type to independent under the presentation tab I don't get any display back when I start the application (although SGD shows that it has succcessfully started a session). Also, when I try and launch the application in a kiosk type window I get a desktop session but the application does not start - although I'm not sure whether or not to expect it to.
Obviously I'm missing something somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
make sure to use the full path to the application and make sure your Windows server can display apps and not just full desktops such as (XP, Vista, 7). Only Terminal Services can display full apps and not just desktops
Windows client OSes that support Remote Desktop that are used as a application server can only display full desktops. This is not an SGD limitation but an RDP/Microsoft one. If you need individual apps, they must be hosted on a Terminal Server such as 2003 or 2008.
