Once you have published some applications, you can assign them to one or more users or groups.
To do so, click on the “Assign Application” tile in the “Applications” tab of the AdminTool.

The following window will be displayed. It allows you to assign applications:

How to Assign an Application to a user (or a group)

In the left tree view, you can see a complete list of all your users and groups (local as well as from your Active Directory if any).
All users and groups having at least one application assigned are displayed with their name in bold.

In the left tree view, click on a user (or a group): their currently assigned applications will be checked in the right tree view.

  • You can check an application to assign it to the currently selected user (or group).
  • You can uncheck an application to unassign it.
  • Changes to users assignments are instantly applied.
  • Changes to groups assignments require that you click on the “Save” button to be applied.

Change all Applications Assignments

You can change which application is available to which user/group on the same window.
It is a good way to visually check the current application assignments.

In this example, the users John and Julia, as well as any member of the “Users” Group will be able to use the “Notepad” application :

Important remarks when using RDPlus Seamless Client

With the RDPlus Seamless Client, remote applications will run seamlessly on the local desktop as if they were native local applications. Users will only see the applications assigned by the administrator.

  • The Seamless Client session is held open only when an application is running and being pushed through to the local client. When the last application is closed the session ends.
  • If a user has specific applications assigned, they will seamlessly see these applications when the session is opened.
  • If no application has been assigned to this user, RDPlus will automatically use the RDPlus Taskbar.
  • If a user has the right to use the default Microsoft Remote Desktop, the Seamless Client will display a background color to avoid having both the Remote and the Local Desktop icons piled on the screen.

Rules for Microsoft Remote Desktop, RDPlus Remote TaskBar and Floating Panel

  • You can customize your user’s work environment by assigning them: the full Microsoft Remote Desktop, the RDPlus Remote TaskBar, or the RDPlus Floating Panel.
  • f no application is assigned to a user, they will see the Microsoft Remote Desktop which will display the Desktop folder shortcuts.
  • If a user has several allocations plus the Microsoft Remote Desktop, they will see a remote desktop.
  • If a user has several applications plus the RDPlus TaskBar, they will see the TaskBar which displays the shortcuts of their Desktop folder.

For more information see Remote Taskbar and Floating Panel.

Running scripts/programs on session opening

  • If you want to start a script when the session opens, name it LOGON.BAT or LOGON.CMD and copy this script:
    • In the Application Data folder of All Users if this script applies to all users,
    • In the Application Data of the user if this script applies to this user.
  • If you want to start a script on the client side when a session is opening, you just have to name a program STARTUP.EXE and to copy it at the home drive of the user PC (C:\startup.exe).
  • If you want a program to be started as a service when the RDPlus server reboots you have to name this program STARTUP.EXE and copy it in the folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\RDPLUS\UserDesktop\Files\.
