I have a customer for whom this is a real pain point so hopefully this will help some of you.

This is a feature many have been waiting for! What is it all about? Consider the following scenario. You have created an Azure RemoteApp collection housing several applications. You provide access to this Azure RemoteApp collection to your users.

Fellow MVP Cláudio Rodrigues has created a cool tool that builds a highly available RDS environment, complete with license servers and SSL certificate deployment.  Get a look at it here.

We’ve created a guide that walks you through the steps required to install a Proof-of-Concept (POC) environment for RDSH Full Desktop with FSLogix Apps.

FSLogix Apps 2.1 allows admins to massively reduce the number of Windows Gold images, easily manage per-user applications, and optimize license costs while assuring compliance.

PoC environments created according to this install guide can be used to test applications controlled by FSLogix Apps in a reproducible way.
