    Remote App


    I have a remote app that works great on my customers windows 8 computer when I click on it. The problem is that is I create a scheduled task to execute it (file name is ImportTime (3).rdp) when the task runs I get a window that ask what program do I want to use to run the program. When I pick Remote Desktop Connection the next window the come up says it can't find the program. Any help would be great

    Solved The task scheduler in Windows doesn't like the (3) in the file name of the remote app. Once I removed it all now works. YEAH

    Who would have thought that it was a file name problem. Hope I saved you XweAponX and anyone else time with this problem.
