APPLICATION PUBLISHING

OVERVIEW

Bsoft App supports 4 different kinds of Application Publishing:

Microsoft Remote Desktop.
The user will see the full Windows Remote Desktop in the session.

Microsoft Remote Desktop.
The user will see the full Windows Remote Desktop in the session.

Bsoft App Taskbar.
Any application, folder, shortcuts, documents… copied on the user’s Desktop folder will be published with the Bsoft App Remote Taskbar. In this case, the user does not have any access to applications other than those decided by the administrator. Application Control has a much finer grain.

The Floating Panel.
All the applications can be published on a mini drop-down list.

Assigning one, two, three, or more specific applications to a user/group.

In this case the user will only see their assigned applications when opening a session.

Assigning
one, two, three, or more specific applications to a user/group.

In this case the user will only see their assigned applications when opening a session.

There is a priority rule to remember:
The Microsoft Remote Desktop has the highest priority, then the Bsoft App Taskbar, then specific applications. If a user has a specific application assigned and Bsoft App taskbar or Microsoft Remote Desktop, they will not see the specific application because they have a lower priority.

MANAGING APPLICATION USING THE ADMIN TOOL

You will add or delete applications using the AdminTool, by clicking on the “Application Publishing tab” on the Applications tile:

Click on the “Add Application” tile in order to publish an app:

  1. Foxit is published as an example. To publish an application, click on the “Add a new application” button, then locate the path of the executable of your application by clicking on browse, then set a name for this application in the dedicated field.
  2. You must click on the “Save” button to store any modification.
  3. After declaring a new application, we recommend to use the “Test (start selected)” button to check that the application is functional before assigning it to your users.
  4. You can specify for each application if it will be launched maximized, minimized, assigned to all the users or if it will be hidden after launch.
  5. You can add a command line option if you need to add some extra parameters which are usually set in the shortcut properties of the application.
  6. Since Bsoft App 11.40 version, you can move up or down declared applications for a better presentation on the Floating Panel.

IMPORTANT REMARKS

  • After installation, the default setting is: Any RDP user will see the complete Microsoft Remote Desktop.
  • The Bsoft App Taskbar publishes all shortcuts copied in the user’s Desktop folder. When selecting the Bsoft App Taskbar, you can request to automatically copy any of the shortcuts available in the All Users Desktop folder and/or, to automatically create shortcuts from applications assigned to the users with Application Control.
