Free Command-Line Utility Allows you to Run Multiple Citrix Published Applications From one Command – TSKaapow

The amazing Warren Simondson just released a new free Citrix / Terminal Services utility called TSKaapow.  TSKaapow is a command-line utility to run multiple applications from one command.

This utility was written to allow a single call to launch multiple applications in their own process, ensuring that a user has access to only the applications they require in a single seamless or desktop session.  TSKaapow with its parameters can exist as a shortcut on the desktop, can be run in a script, or published as a single application that runs multiple applications, each with its own process. TSKaapow will work as a Seamless Published application in a Citrix environment. If multiple applications are launched via TSKaapow in a Seamless environment, the session will not close until all applications have been closed. In this scenario, if three applications are opened via TSKaapow, and one is closed by the user, the other two applications continue functioning without error.

Download it as always for free at Ctrl-Alt-Del IT Consultancy – TSKaapow Download Page.

Usage:

TSKaapow [[PATH][Application] [PATH][Application] …] [/?]

  PATH        –  Path to the Application

  Application –  Application Executable

  /?          –  Show this help file

TSKaapow without parameters will display this help file.

NOTE: If a PATH or Application does not exist, TSKaapow will terminate at that point. Any applications launched prior will still be operational.

E.G. TSKaapow "c:Program FilesOffice11EXCEL.EXE" c:windowssystem32notepad.exe
This command will launch MS Excel and notepad one after the other.

E.G. TSKaapow "c:Program FilesOffice11EXCEL.EXE" "c:windowssystem32notepad.exe h:MyTextfile.txt"
This command will launch MS Excel and h:MyTextfile.txt in notepad one after the other.

Although written for Terminal Server and Citrix environments, this application will function on non-TS/Citrix workstations and servers.

This application has been tested on the following platforms:

  • Windows 2008 Server
  • Windows 2003 Server SP1
  • Windows 2003 Server SP1 w/ Citrix PS 4.0/ XA 5.0
  • Windows 2003  Server SP1 (Terminal Server Application Mode)
  • Windows 2000  Server SP4
  • Windows 2000  Server SP4 w/ Citrix MF XP
  • Windows 2000  Server SP4 (Terminal Server Application Mode)
  • Windows 2000  Server SP4 w/ Citrix MF 1.8
  • Windows XP Professional (domain member)
