Create and manage RemoteApps hosted on Windows 7, 8, XP, and Vista.
RemoteApp is a Microsoft technology that extends Remote Desktop Services to allow seamless display of a remote application (as if it were a native application on the local computer).

RemoteApp Tool is a GUI tool that allows you to create/manage hosted RemoteApps on Windows (7, 8, XP and Vista) as well as automatically generate RDP files to use on the clients.

It also works with Windows Server 2008 and newer.
Note: If you try to host RemoteApps on any other edition of Windows (eg Win 7/8 Professional), the tool will run but RemoteApps will not work. The RDP client will appear to be connecting, then just disappear.
