Typically, if you are using the built-in remote desktop program, the only thing you need is a checkbox under the resources tab that allows the clipboard to be shared between machines. Be sure that is checked. Also, since you stated that you got a new SSD, the drive letter may have changed. To check that, click "more" and then make sure that all of the ...

Amazon AWS WorkSpaces provides the virtual desktop on the cloud might suit your requirement. Another option is Microsoft own Azure RemoteApp. I haven't use both, so you got to compare both by yourself. My concern with renting Server VPS for Windows Desktop use is on the availability of the Windows Desktop Image to boot the VPS for the first time. Even if ...

Since you want to run Windows based Application on Cloud, you can choose Windows Azure or Providers who supports Windows OSes ( Rackspace, Liquidweb etc ).

Hosted Desktop: Typically provided via MS RDP or Citrix XenApp into either a managed dedicated server farm or managed multi-tenanted server farm.

The Microsoft tool PsExec is the solution to this problem. It uses RPC to control remote computers, which is allowed by default for public networks by the Windows Firewall.

I tried by just deactivating transparencies, and it is not doing the issue anymore! So in my case, it was transparencies in windows that would make RDP stop rendering the screen properly on a resize... The option is at the same place as Desktop Composition in Windows 7.

If the VNC server and the ssh server are the same, then use a destination of 127.0.0.1 instead of the hostname. Also, make sure that the tunnel is a "local" tunnel and not "remote" or "dynamic". Also, if your test confirms port 5901 works, then you should use the same port in your tunnel, probably for both source and destination.

Use "one-way" clipboard By default the clipboard works both ways. Into the published app/desktop and out of the published desktop. But you can tweak this. For XenApp before v7.0: You can make the clipboard READ ONLY for the app. So you can paste INTO the published app/desktop but not copy out of it. This feature has existed since 2009 and is done via ...

I don't understand this answer, but I am going to provide it in case it helps anyone else. Understand, I have had this problem for weeks, but it was just an annoying hindrance so I didn't really dig in until now. I finally logged in remotely as the real "Administrator" to see if that worked. It had already worked locally but, given my experience, I was ...

In a disk partitioned setup there is no way to do that, simply because Windows cannot run at the same time as GNU/Linux. Virtual machine is the way to go in my opinion (be it VMware, Virtualbox or some other software).
