    It would be nice to have the possiblity to hide published apps from the client view. It would be usefull if you publish an application with autostart and the enduser should not see and not be able to click and start the app.

    Hi, what would be a use case for such feature? Do you need due to security concern or something else?

    We would use it to protect programs which are marked with the check mark "Autostart" from further execution. In our case, we use a program to set registry keys and customize user profiles if group-policies are too inflexible. All of these things are packed together in a Message of the Day program. If these program run more then one time it should be a source of trouble.

    Wouldn't a logon script be a better way to set registry keys and do other customizations?

    No because those configuration should only be used if the user logs in over the parallels client.

    Hi, following up on the above, in case this is still relevant. I trust this can be achieved by allowing only 1 instance of a specific published application to work. This can be carried out from Parallels RAS console -> Publishing -> Published item -> Licensing Tab and enable "Allow users to start only one instance of the application". Let me know if this tackles your requirements.
