RemoteApp Tool has been made open-source.

  • Create and manage RemoteApps on Windows desktops and servers
  • Generate RDP files
  • Generate MSI installers (requires WiX Toolset)
  • Use a Remote Desktop Gateway
  • Set options such as session timeouts
  • Select icons for your apps
  • File type associations for deployed apps

  • Microsoft .Net Framework 4
  • WiX Toolset (If you want to create MSIs. Reboot after installing.)
  • A supported version/edition of Windows:

Note: If you try to host RemoteApps on any other edition of Windows (eg Win 7/8/10 Professional or Home), the tool will run but RemoteApps will not work. The RDP client will appear to be connecting, then just disappear with no error shown.




If you want your RemoteApps to appear in the Start Menu of your clients, or via a web interface, check out RAWeb!
