Mobile Development – Start apps with another using injectDLL

I already posted one article about using injectDLL, one about subclassing a foreign window. This time injectDLL is used to start and stop an application when another app is started.

After login, the Start screen (Metro-Ui) is shown, regardless of having set TS to start new sessions always in Desktop mode. If you then start a desktop application or simply the “Control Panel” or “My Computer”, which are Desktop apps both, the screen changes to show an empty (Start screen) background only.

The apps are started on the desktop, but the desktop will not be shown by TS!

Just a short note: rdesktop-ce is now RDP5 capable and can connect to Win2008 R2 Terminal Services.

RDM_Keepbusy has been updated

I fixed a bug in RDM_KeepBusy. It worked only for the first session and not after close/open another session. Please always use the subversion code.
