RemoteApp Takes Focus after RDP tries to Reconnect RRS feed

  • Question

  • Alright I am having a hard time articulating this issue for various search engines to point me in the right direction.  Using Server 2012, and Windows 7 or 8 I have a strange issue that occurs.

    Lets say that we have an application accessible from RemoteApp.  The user opens the app and is using it as their day to day.  Eventually they want to use a local application and they start using that (they do not minimize the remote app application).  For whatever reason (I am blaming wireless) the connection to the remote app server drops momentarily and then eventually the remote app takes focus after the connection recovery finishes.

    This can be a big issue for users that access Great Plains from RemoteApp because now their data is getting typed into the remote app GP session.

    Now if the GP session is minimized before they start working on the next application disconnects do not seem to bring the remoteapp session to the front.

    Any ideas?
