How to Deploy PDF Reader Pro with Remote Desktop Services?

Remote Desktop Services (RDS) deployments refer to the implementation of Microsoft's Remote Desktop Services technology within an organization's infrastructure. With RDS, users can access virtual desktops and Windows applications remotely from anywhere. It provides a centralized platform to deliver desktops and applications to end-users, offering flexibility, remote access, and simplified management.


PDF Reader Pro supports deployment via Remote Desktop Services, including RemoteApp and Terminal Server, (formerly Windows Terminal Server).
