I'm on Windowws 2008 server and I am trying to set the startup application for Remote Desktop sessions via the Local Group Policy Snap-in.

When I log in via RDP it does run my configured application, but it does not use the Working Directory I specified (It is always c:\windows\system32 no matter what I put in the box). Are there any known issues with this functionality?

The same thing also happens when I configure an individual users 'Environment' settings to launch an app during login.

Try to do this from Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration

  • It's been a while since I looked at this. I'm pretty sure I used that setting and it still didn't work. I'll try it again and let you know – Mike Marshall Dec 12 '11 at 17:20
