Client application doesn't support concurrent sessions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our client application is designed for a POS Station wherein it interacts with Biztalk RFID to scan tags on products & display their details on the screen. It serves as an automated station to verify products being scanned and consequently the business need require to support only one application session at a time.

    As we have a WCF service self-hosted in our WPF application, reponsible for interacting with Biztalk RFID, windows users won't be able to run concurrent sessions without conflict or disruption. If properly documented, could we get a waiver on the Win 2k8 R2 certification requirement of 'concurrent-sessions' for the client application ?

  • I feel that this should get a waiver because of the following statement given in the logo specs:

    User applications must be able to run in multiple user sessions (Fast User Switching) for both local and remote access. Applications must check other terminal service (TS) sessions for existing instances of the application. If an application does not support multiple user sessions or remote access, it must clearly state this when launched from such a session.

    So if your application is giving appropriate messages when second instance is launched, then I feel that it should be sufficient. Still it will be better to check the same from L10N Bridge/Microsoft.
