    We are an ISV and within our windows application 'ReceptionDesk' we should be able to take a picture using a webcam. In citrix this is working fine.
    However when published with parallels I can not see a webcam
    I already tried using an USB attached webcam (instead of built in), but it does not show up in "Local Resources - Configure Devices" while the webcam works well on my laptop.

    Is webcam redirection possible or is that a shortcoming within parallels?

    Thank you.

    @NicoC1 Webcam redirection should be supported.
    However, for this to work your RDP server and clients will have to be Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 or later.
    If your webcam is USB 3.0, the requirements will be bumped to Windows 8/Windows Server 2012 or later.
