I just setup a new 2016 Server and installed the WSE RemoteApp 2016 and I don’t see any errors, but on the client side the add ins are missing from the Launchpad as seen below.

When I try to launch the Launcher, I get the following error…

If I select OK it opens the WSE Launchpad Window.   Any suggestions? Thanks!

Good Answer

Is this happening on a Windows 11 client computer (RTM or Insider Preview)? I’ve seen one other report of this so far, which was on Windows 11, and so I’m thinking that there’s an issue going on when WSE RemoteApp’s client-side installer attempts to set permissions on the specified file/folder. I’ll need to look into that.

In the mean time, you should be able to resolve the issue by right-clicking on the “C:\Program Files\Windows Server\Bin\LaunchPad” folder (on the Windows 11 client computer), going to the “Security” tab, and making sure that the “Users” account has been granted full control of the folder.

    Okay, I’m able to reproduce this one now, and it’s definitely not a Windows 11 issue (seeing as I’m able to replicate it under Windows 10, etc.). I’ll keep plugging away at this one and will release an update for WSE RemoteApp just as soon as I have a fix available. Thanks for alerting me to the problem.

    Okay, I’ve just uploaded a new version of WSE RemoteApp 2016 (i.e. Version 1.255.1933.0) that should correct the issue for you. If not, then please do let me know. You can download the new version from the add-in’s home page.

We are running Windows 10 Pro V21H2.  They are new machines and maybe the latest Service Pack is similar to Windows 11?  Thanks for the workaround!
