we've tried for a while now and we're getting the same...please help, because MS says that it support multiple browsers: http://blogs.technet.com/b/windowsserve ... ageIndex=2

Email and web discovery of Remote Applications and desktops. Users now can find the correct remote workspace to connect to by just providing their email address. This removes the requirement to remember a long website URL. In addition, Remote Desktop Web Access now supports other browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

The post above is referring to Windows PCs running browsers other than IE.

The issue is not with RDWeb, it is that the Mac client doesn't fully understand what to do with the .rdp file that it is sent by RDWeb. Even if it did, the Mac RDC client does not have RemoteApp functionality.

You can manually edit the connection settings on the Mac side and use the "Start the following program on connection" setting as a workaround, but that is not the same as RemoteApp technology. See the following forum post for details on how to use this workaround.

ran into the same issue as well, the remoteapp worked fine on the Windows side but would load the desktop for the MACs. I found that if you edit the .rdp session with the Mac .rdp client that you can find the Applications portion of the edit and put the path where the packaged program is: ex: c:\program files\ packaged programs.

Now when you launch the .rdp session it will just open the app you want instead of load a desktop session.

Hope this is what you were looking for.

I got it to work this way: I created the .rdp from the remote app that I desired. create your .rdp as normal and test with your PC, it should only open that app. Now take the .rdp from C:\program files\packaged programs and copy and paste it to your mac to edit and test. Open RDC 2.0 on the mac and go to File > Edit a Connection. Point it to the .rdp file and it will open a screen showing you what you can edit. Now click the applications portion of the menu and check the box that says "start only the following windows applications" the rest should be fine. You can also specify the domain if you are using domain logins. Save it and test.
