Configuring Local Applications when using the 2X RDP Client Desktop replacement

When managing Windows devices from 2X Remote Application Server, the administrator can decide to replace the desktop, thus limiting the user from changing system settings or installing new applications.  When this feature is enabled, the device is transformed into a thin client device without replacing the operating system. Obviously the administrator’s target should be to deploy remote applications or remote desktops and use the native OS simply to deploy the software needed to connect remotely. However, in some instances local applications may be needed. The administrator can still configure local applications to be shown within the 2X RDP Client Desktop Replacement. This will provide the user with a single place from where to deploy all applications needed. To publish a local application the administrator must do the following:

1. Shadow the user’s session or use the user device station directly. To learn how to shadow a Windows device please read “New Client Manager features in 2X Remote Application Server v12 ”.

2. Switch the 2X RDP Client Desktop Replacement to admin mode. For more information please read “Administrative Mode in the 2X RDP Client Desktop Replacement”.
