Launching .rdp file using Remote Desktop app RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on a windows store app.I want to create a .rdp file at runtime and launch the .rdp file using microsoft provided Remote Desktop app. Is this possible to do using Windows.System.Launcher.LaunchFileAsync()? Or there is any other method available for that? Any help will be appreciated.

  • Please don't post the same question in multiple threads. I'm locking this thread as a duplicate. If you need more help with this please continue on your original thread.

    Windows.System.Launcher is the only way to launch files or URIs. There is no way to launch a specific app.

    As Matt said, there are limitations on where you can call Launcher from and on which file types. You need to check the return code to see if the launch succeeded.
