To help end users set up RemoteApp and Desktop Connection on a computer that is running Windows 7, you can create a RemoteApp and Desktop Connection configuration file to distribute to end users.
Use the following procedure to create a RemoteApp and Desktop Connection configuration file.
Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the RD Connection Broker server that you plan to configure, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at
|To create a configuration file|
On the RD Connection Broker server, open Remote Desktop Connection Manager. To open Remote Desktop Connection Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click Remote Desktop Connection Manager.
In the left pane, click Remote Desktop Connection Manager: <ServerName>, where <ServerName> is the name of the Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker) server.
On the Action menu, click Create Configuration File.
In the Create Configuration File dialog box, in the RAD Connection feed URL box, enter the RemoteApp and Desktop Connection URL that specifies the Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access) server that provides RemoteApp and Desktop Connection resources to users. When you specify the URL, use the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the RD Web Access server. For example, enter https://server1.contoso.com/RDWeb/Feed/webfeed.aspx.
RDWeb is the default virtual directory name used by RD Web Access. If your implementation of RD Web Access uses a different virtual directory name, provide that name in the URL.
Click Save, specify a file name and a folder location, and then click Save.
Distribute the configuration file to the end users.
