VIRTUAL CHANNEL COM SERVICE FRAMEWORK - v5.0 - DEMO

Virtual Channel COM Service Framework for Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Server) / Citrix solution is a set of drivers and components that provide the communication service between applications on the server and COM objects on the client side.

In the real world, applications running on the Terminal Server / Citrix usually need to make call to the client machine to perform special tasks as controlling specific devices (ticket printer, cash drawer, MSR, MICR, Electronic Signature Pads - all Topaz models, etc) or launching / connecting-to an application instance on the client machine (Active X programs as Word, Excel, Outlook, etc).

Currently, there is no solution for this specific need. Application developers for Citrix / Terminal Services solutions usually have to spent a lot of time to do research on a portable solution for this problem.

Virtual Channel COM Service Framework is designed to provide application developers an easy, efficient, portable and flexible way to archive the most tedious tasks of communication between the server and the client machine. Application developers do not need to know how the function call is forwarded to the client side, and how the result is received and if an error occurs, all information is sent back to the caller as in a normal program.

Virtual Channel COM Service Framework provides VB developers the quickest way to do their work as they usually do with Visual Basic in the world of COM based development. For C++ developer (or other programming language supporting COM as Delphi, PowerBuilder and .NET), the framework provides a COM based standard set of methods for normal uses. This framework has been tested and used with Visual Basic, Visual C++, PowerBuilder, Delphi and .NET.

Virtual Channel COM Service Framework is available for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows.

A special version of Virtual Channel COM Service Framework supports VMware PCoIP protocol using in VMware Horizon View.

REMOTEAPP EXPRESS - File Type Associations simplified - FREEWARE

Remote App Express is a complementary utility application for Remote Desktop Services. This application provides an easier and quicker (express) way to open a document file with RemoteApp. From local machine:

  • Right click on a Word file (or any document file like Excel, PDF, PowerPoint, Visio, AutoCad, etc)  and Open it with default associated program on RDSH server
  • Double click on a file and the file will be opened with default associated program on RDSH server via  RemoteApp Express program.
  • Unlike File Type Associations feature of RemoteApp on Windows 2008 and Windows 2012 that requires each file type must be associated with a RemoteApp RDP file on the local machine (.docx with MSWord.rdp, .xlsx with Excel.rdp, etc), RemoteApp Express uses a common launcher program on the server side, so there is only 1 .RDP file to distribute on the local (client machine)

* Only specific file type allowed by Administrator configured on the server can be opened for preventing security issue. Only document file type (no executable file type) can be opened. 

This program, in any kind, is not for competing with the new product Citrix XenApp Express announced by Microsoft, which will replace Microsoft Azure RemoteApp in 2017. It's only an enhancement, an easier way (express) of use of Microsoft RemoteApp on RDSH Server.

Version 1.0 released on Oct 15, 2016.
