You cannot dock the remote Language bar to the taskbar on a client computer when you start a RemoteApp application on a Windows Server 2008-based terminal server


Symptoms


Consider the following scenario:
  • You start a RemoteApp application on a Windows Server 2008-based terminal server from a client computer.
  • The local Language bar is minimized or docked to the taskbar on the client computer.
In this scenario, the Language bar is undocked from the taskbar on the client computer when you use the RemoteApp application. Additionally, you cannot dock the Language bar to the taskbar.

Cause


This issue occurs because the RemoteApp application session forces the Language bar to be undocked from the taskbar. This is because the RemoteApp application session does not support docked mode.

Workaround


To work around this issue, use one of the following methods:
  • Do not dock the Language bar to the taskbar on the client computer.
  • Hide the Language bar on the client computer. To do this, right-click the Language bar, and then click Close the Language bar.

    Notes
    • To use the hidden Language bar, use the Language bar keyboard shortcuts.
    • To re-display the hidden Language bar in the RemoteApp application session, set up a custom RemoteApp application on the terminal server to display the Language bar. Then, start the custom RemoteApp application from the client computer. To do this, follow these steps.

      Note You must have administrative permissions to set up the custom RemoteApp application on the terminal server.
      1. Start a text editor, such as Notepad.
      2. Paste the following example RDP commands in the text editor window, and then save the text file by using an .rdp file name extension.

        Note You can customize the RDP commands in the example to suit your environment. Replace the TARGET_SERVER_NAME placeholder in the example with the target server name.
