Error when you try to change the properties of a published RemoteApp in Windows Server 2012

Consider the following scenario:
  • You deploy Remote Desktop Service on a Windows Server 2012-based computer.
  • A Remote Desktop Connection Broker is installed in the environment. The computer is joined in a session-based collection.
  • You install an application on a non-system drive of the computer.
  • You publish this application as a RemoteApp.
  • You try to use Remote Desktop Management Server (RDMS) UI to change and save the properties of the RemoteApp.
In this scenario, the operation fails, and you receive the following message:
Cannot bind argument to parameter 'VirtualPath' because it is an empty string
This issue occurs because the script that RDMS UI calls receives an empty parameter unexpectedly.
To work around this issue, use the Set-RDRemoteApp cmdlet to change the properties of the RemoteApp.

For more information about the Set-RDRemoteApp cmdlet, go to the following Microsoft website:
