Desktop app on windows container


(Guilhermecgs) #1

Hi Folks,

Just to check:

If I create a container with windows image on it, is it possible to use a remote connection to actually see the desktop and , for example, play minesweeper?

ps: my use case is this:

I have hundreds of users… Each user need to create their our infrastructure consisting in about 6 machines linked together…

After creating, the user will open some desktop gui apps on each of the machines using a remote desktop connection…

Already got an answer from stackoverflow

So sad it won’t work…

Be able to do something like this in windows would be nice:

Personally would also be interested in having an image with GUI support
