Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You install the Remote Desktop Session Host role service on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2.

  • You publish a RemoteApp application on the computer. For example, you configure Notepad.exe as the RemoteApp application.

  • On a Windows 7-based or Windows 8-based client, you set the screen resolution to 1366 x 768.

  • You start the RemoteApp application from the client.

  • You maximize the RemoteApp application when it is started.


In this scenario, the taskbar is hidden because the RemoteApp application window consumes the whole desktop instead of the actual work area.

Cause

This problem occurs because there is a resolution mismatch between the client-side and server-side work areas.

Windows Server 2008 R2 file information notesImportant Windows 7 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table.
