Similar to RemoteApp, the RemoteApp for Hyper-V feature allows users to access a specific hosted application remotely, as opposed to the entire desktop.
When using RemoteApp, the app runs in the context of a server session; however, RemoteApp for Hyper-V enables remote access to an app running on a Hyper-V VM.
This feature allows launching of apps that are hosted on VMs as remote apps.
This post outlines setup steps and common troubleshooting tricks for deploying RemoteApp for Hyper-V:
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) scenario –
- Set up an entire VDI solution, which would involve deploying RD Connection Broker, farms, and personal desktops.More info about deploying VDI farms, and deploying VDI personal desktops
- Install apps on guest OS in the farm or personal desktop, and create RDP files according to farm or personal desktop deployment
- Share these RDP files with end user so that they can launch these apps as RemoteApp programs.
- A user then launches these RDP files and enters their credentials to get access to RemoteApp programs hosted on the guest OS on Hyper-V computer.
