The taskbar may not show the application name correctly when using a Terminal Server RemoteApp

Symptoms

When working with a Terminal Server RemoteApp connection, the name of the application in the taskbar does not appear as expected. For Example, when connected to the application Product Studio, the name listed in the taskbar appears asĀ (Remote):

alternate text

Your expected result would be that when connected to the application Product Studio, the name listed in the taskbar appears as Application Name (Remote).

alternate text

Cause

This issue occurs because the local taskbar does not receive the EVENT_OBJECT_NAMECHANGE event from the system due to a timing issue. The EVENT_OBJECT_NAMECHANGE is needed to update the taskbar title information.

Resolution

Note: The issue does not affect how the application works. You can safely ignore this issue.

To work around this issue, the taskbar can be refreshed by closing and then re-starting the application.
