Hello

 

Trying to figure out how to publish Microsoft Edge as a remote app, has anyone had any luck?

 

This makes the icon show up, but nothing happens once you click it:

New-RdsRemoteApp -TenantName $myTenantName -HostPoolName $myHostPoolName -AppGroupName $myAppGroupName -Name "Microsoft Edge" -FilePath "C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge.exe" -IconPath "C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge.exe" -IconIndex "0" -Description "Microsoft Edge"
 
Trying the way Edge is started from command line (start microsoft-edge:) does not work:
New-RdsRemoteApp : Filepath: 'start microsoft-edge:' is invalid for RemoteAppName.
 
Neither does the way it's started from Start-Run (microsoft-edge:)
New-RdsRemoteApp : Filepath: 'microsoft-edge:' is invalid for RemoteAppName.
 
Anyone been able to make it work?
 
Cheers

@Ola Holtberget Did you ever figure this out? I'm trying to do the same thing and haven't found any documentation or managed to get it to work.

I managed to get this to work...not sure if its the "right" way thou. I created a .lnk shortcut to a modern app (ie. Edge), then I used the path to the .lnk file as the Filepath and the icon at the same path you mentioned in your post.

Thanks for the workaround! I hope there will be a better supported way of doing it instead of using an LNK, but we use what we have untill something better comes along :)
Solution

This is how it was done for our internal validation

 

New-RdsRemoteApp $tenant1 $pool1 $appgroup2 -Name Edge -FilePath shell:Appsfolder\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe!MicrosoftEdge -IconPath C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge.exe

@Brent Carlson: Thank you for sharing your solution. We will have documentation out there shortly about publishing of modern apps and limitations.

Great, this seems to work. Thanks for the information.

Great - that worked perfectly! Thanks!

@Stefan Georgiev 

 

Perfect solution to what I was trying to achieve.

 

Thank-you for posting!
