ArcGIS RemoteApp on mac from Windows Machine

Turns out you can use RemoteApp Tool to open a remote app on a windows machine on a mac. Here’s how I used it to run ArcGIS Pro to appear like it’s running on my mac.

Download RemoteApp Tool: http://www.kimknight.net/remoteapptool

Install it on your windows machine: (Even though it says it’s unsupported I installed it on a Windows 10 Pro machine)

  • Open RemoteApp Tool
  • Click +
  • Find whatever app you want (c:\program files\ArcGIS\bin\arcgispro.exe)
  • Create RDP File & Save to a shared drive on the mac.
  • In mac, open RDP file in Remote Desktop.

You may need to open the RDP file in a text editor to change the connection address.
