SYMPTOMS

You add a Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0-based application as a RemoteApp program on a Windows Server 2008-based terminal server. When you run the RemoteApp program on a Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2008-based client computer, windows are opened in a specific order. When you close the windows, the focus does not move through the windows in the correct order. For example, you have an application that opens a modal dialog box on a client computer. The first dialog box opens a second dialog box, and then the second dialog box opens a third dialog box. When you close the third dialog box, you expect the focus to move to the second dialog box. However, the focus may move to the first dialog box.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because of a problem with the Z-order handling of Remote Applications Integrated Locally (RAIL) windows.

Note A RAIL window is a local client window that mimics a RemoteApp window.
