Wow. I thought all kinds of people who know more than I do would have chimed in 
by now.
My only suggestion is to make sure that https://rds-server-FQDN is in the 
users' IE trusted sites zone.

Subject: [THIN] Win2012 RDS RD Web Access - Allow Active X installation - GPO 

I'm having a devil of a time trying to figure this out. We are preparing to 
roll out Windows 2012 RDS; we are going to be using published RemoteApps to our 
users in their web browsers. However, the first time a user accesses the site, 
they are prompted to run an Active X control "Microsoft Remote Desktop Services 
Web Access Control". I am trying to set our Group Policy to allow the automatic 
installation of this particular Active X control. And I can't seem to figure 
out what settings to change.

I've looked at "Computer, Administrative Templates, Windows Components,Active X 
Installer Service". I enabled "Approved Installation Sites", and put in the URL 
of "https://rds-server-FQDN/RDWeb";, and value "2,2,1,0". This should allow the 
installation (I thought) of this control. Turns out, the user is still being 

Anybody know what else I have to enable, so my user isn't prompted to install 
the Active X control, and it just installs automatically? Just the controls 
from my one site should be allowed.
