the perfect method usually used to open a application in the remote machine
use like this

and in the type into activity
add a [K(enter)] atlast like this
"c:/yourapplication filepath[K(enter)]"
and as we have used hotkeys along the string enable SEND WINDOW MESSAGE activity and TRY ONCE
Also increase the TIMEOUT property as 60000 milliseconds (1 min)

Make sure you have maximised the screen with Maximise activity once after logging in to RDP

kindly try this and let know for any queries or clarification



Are you unable to achieve the same using Start Process Activity?

You can follow the below steps to use open application activity to open any application in the computer.

  2. In the open application activity, click on indicate on screen, then indicate the window of the application you opened. It will automatically get the properties of the application and locate the exe file of it.

That’s all you have to do.

Or else, you can use the Start Process activity to start an application you want
