Moving from using local applications to Microsoft RemoteApps in Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) can be disruptive for end-users. The only thing an end-user wants to do is click an icon and start the application. They do not care about the technology that is needed to launch the application.
This video demonstrates the use of a smart icon in Liquit Workspace to start a local application. In this example we are using WordPad, but the principle works for all applications that have been discussed in my Application of the Week blogs or any other application which can be run as a RemoteApp in WVD.
The smart icon is updated to move away from using the application locally, to using the same application as a RemoteApp in WVD, without bothering the end-user.
A couple of Liquit solutions are used here:
- Liquit Workspace
- Within Liquit Workspace I’ve configured a WVD connector which brings in published RemoteApps in WVD.
- I’ve also configured a Setup Store connector which is used to create a managed package for the Microsoft Remote Desktop client.
We have made moving to Windows Virtual Desktop easy with Liquit Workspace. Connect, publish smart icons and go! We support faster on-boarding, provide the most consistent end-user experience with single sign-on and help you manage this with a single administrative console.
