This might be a really basic question, but I couldn't find an answer here or on Google. The situation
- Windows Server installed in the cloud (we can choose 12,16,19)
- Remote Desktop installed (authenticating with AD)
- Remote Users connecting to the server over RDC
The question: Can users who connect via RDC install applications that only work in Win10? That is, does Window Server present itself as Win10 to RDC clients or does it present itself as Windows Server? We believe there may be some desktop apps that will work (and are licensed) for Win10 but are not allowed on Windows Server.
We aren't going to install apps on Windows Server for all these users, but if a user wants to install an app on their local desktop on this RDC instance, will the application think it's installing onto Win10 or to Windows Server?
If there is a better approach to this problem, acceptable answers could include better approaches.
