I have a Windows server with couple of remote apps. When a user starts from his client a remote app, each of the apps is executed in a separate RDP session. I am mainly concerned about the login time. Is it possible for remote apps to share a single RDP session (so that further app logins are faster), or is it a fundamental limitation?


I suppose that's the default, but it can be controlled with a .rdp setting (not available in GUI).


Determines whether a new Terminal Server session is started with every launch of a RemoteApp to the same computer and with the same credentials.

0 – No new session is started. The currently active session of the user is shared.

1 – A new login session is started for the RemoteApp.

See Overview of .rdp file settings.
