You can either assign an application for all authenticated users or to specified users and groups.

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

  • You can customize your user’s work environment by assigning one application out of these four: Microsoft Remote Desktop, TSplus Remote TaskBar, Floating Panel and Application Panel.
  • If no application is assigned to one user, he will see the Microsoft Remote Desktop which will display the Desktop folder shortcuts.
  • If one user has several allocations plus the Microsoft Remote Desktop, he will see a remote desktop.
  • If a user has several applications plus the TSplus TaskBar, he will see the TaskBar displaying his Desktop folder’ shortcuts.

Running scripts/programs on session opening

  • If you want to start a script when the session opens, you must 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 TSplus server reboots you have to name this program STARTUP.EXE and copy it in the folder: C:\Program Files\TSplus\UserDesktop\Files\ .
