Steps to Deploy RemoteApp for Hyper-V (VDI)

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

  1. 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
  2. Install apps on guest OS in the farm or personal desktop, and create RDP files according to farm or personal desktop deployment
  3. Share these RDP files with end user so that they can launch these apps as RemoteApp programs.
  4. 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.
