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 1. Launcher



Fig 2. Content of apps.json


  "name": "RD Client",

  "url": "rdClient"



  "name": "Demo-MWM",

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

  "icon" : "",

  "canOverwriteBadge": true



  "name": "Demo-Scan",

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

  "icon": ""




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.
