Application published from network drive fails to start.

After the first attempt user session resides on the RDS host with a mapped network drive, so further attempts to start the app succeed.


Publish the app as a batch file mapping the required network drive and then starting the application.

As a quick fix, you can enable the option "Wait until all RAS Universal Printers are redirected before showing the application" in application properties:
