SB1 - How To Run a Local App From Applications Screen?

Hello Launchpad's members,

 

 

SB1's Applications Screen can run WEB or EXE local app.

 

As example Demo-MWM and Demo-Scan are both HTML app and RD Client is a thick client EXE app (see Fig 1.).

 

SB1's file /UserDrive/config/apps.json defines the authorized applications (see Fig. 2).

Fig 2. Content of apps.json

{

  "name": "RD Client",

  "url": "rdClient"

},

{

  "name": "Demo-MWM",

  "url": "/Application/www/apps/DemoMWM/splash.html",

  "icon" : "http://127.0.0.1:83/Application/www/apps/DemoMWM/img/profile.png",

  "canOverwriteBadge": true

},

{

  "name": "Demo-Scan",

  "url": "/Application/www/apps/PriceCheck/index.html",

  "icon": "http://127.0.0.1:83/Application/www/apps/PriceCheck/price_check_icon.png"

}

 

 

According to the syntax of apps.json I understand how Demo-Scan & Demo-MWM's URL are mapped in SB1's system files.

For RD Client's URL it less obvious.

How "url": "rdClient" knows how to call \Windows\RdClient.exe in order to execute RD Client program ?

 

My goal is to mimic the same functionnality but for a custom loaded EXE.
