One of the new feature additions to Terminal Services RemoteApp (TS RemoteApp) in Windows Server® Code Name "Longhorn" Beta 3 is multi-monitor support - the ability for a remote program to be dragged between primary and secondary monitors, to be maximized on any monitor and have it stick correctly to that monitor, etc. In other words, RemoteApp programs work just like local programs do in multi-monitor setups. Here is an FAQ of what TS RemoteApp multi-monitor support constitutes.
am curious to learn more about your deployment so I can help troubleshoot the issue you are experiencing. From your description, it sounds like you have things set up correctly. Do you have an email address that I can use to start a correspondence?
I have the same problem as davidmohara. Everytime I run Remote Desktop, it resizes my taskbar, and I have to manually resize it.
Hi, I am seeing the same problems with the taskbar resizing - on a dual monitor Vista Urtimate 32-bit machine. I am willing to help you diagnose it more closely, if needed - you can reach me at rdp_taskbar-at-oxel.net.
I'm trying to use any Windows 2008 Applications that I previously published using RemoteApp manager and I can successfully lunch the application but I can't cross my application on my second monitor. The line span monitors:i:1 is there and I can succesfully expand my full Remote Desktop session on both monitor. Any Idea ?
I'm using Windows VP Pro SP2 with RDP 6.0 as my client computer.
The RDP 6.0 client does not support RemoteApp spanning, but the one in XP SP3 (and Vista SP1) will do so.
This porbly won't get read being 2 months after last post but anyways!
I've got session broking set up on 3 win2k8 Ts's (RC1's) and can connect using the farm name on each of them.
I can't directly connect to the servers though using their machine name nor their IP address - everytime it just starts a session on the next available server as if its still trying to share the load.
Is anyone elses experiencing this?
I'm also experiencing the taskbar resizing from 2 lines to 1 when I RDP into my office session from home.
As requested of others, details as follow:
Office resolution: 1280x1024 and 1280x1024 (left monitor primary)
Home resolution: 1280x1024 (single monitor)
Office taskbar location: On the left primary monitor
It's also worth noting I reduce the color quality down to 16 bit in the RDP client, and I'm using Vista 32bit (at home) to connect into XP 32bit (at office)
This seems to be a problem afflicting more than one person - is there any fix available?
If i need RemoteApp only, how i can disable Remote Desktop on Server for users?
If the administrator has already generated the RDP file(s) by using the RemoteApp Wizard and pushed them on to the client computer, she will have to manually edit the RDP file(s) on that client computer to set the span monitors field to 0, i.e. it should read span monitors:i:0.
I have two monitors at work (19" 1440x900) and one at home (17" 1280x1024). When I RDP from home I can see only one of the monitors. How can I switch to the second monitor and back?
You don't. The only options you have are to connect to the primary monitor or to span the Remote Desktop Connection across both remote monitors using mstsc.exe's /span switch. This option is available in the Windows RDP Client 6.x.

Has the client OS requirements change for running remote-apps across multi-monitors?
I just discovered that my remote apps would only work on my main monitor because my primary monitor is
Is it possible to modify the compression on the server side besause I need a lossless compression of the GUI of the application on the client side ?
