Hi, I would like to figure out a things or two when using RDP with Start a program on connection.
We are using this lately as a proof of concept so that many users can open a viewer to see some data from our network.

The problem I am facing is that when a user close it's session (by closing the viewer software), it also close the viewer for all the others that are connected at the same time.
It's like the software itself is starting a service that manages all opened process for that software.

Previously, we where using something similar using Citrix and we where deploying the App and it was working as intended.
We do not whish to use Citrix anymore at this point for this environment because of and architecture change.

Is there a way to isolated a startup software to a user profile?

I cannot provide more specific information regarding the architecture we have in place but I can try answering questions.

    Behavior like this may be related to the edition of windows you are using.

    I recommend that you consult the topic below, which will deal with a problem similar to yours, I believe it will be useful for you:

    I got my answer from the software maker. It was to use the /x switch to launch an individual session for each users that will connect to it.
