Hello,

I am trying to integrate a link in a Visio diagram to a specific remote desktop session. Basically, I want to be able to click a server in my drawing, and have remote desktop come up with a connection to that server. I know that the syntax of the command is: mstsc /v SERVER NAME However, I cannot get that to work in the insert hyperlink window in Visio. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Are you tying to create a hyperlink that opens up a remote desktop session?
The program that handles the hyperlink has to be registered in the OS for the protocol specified in the link. eg: mailto:// will open the default mail client, such as Outlook etc. jabber:// will open the Jabber messenger.. , skype:// will open the skype client.. etc.
Its up to your desktop app to register register as the application to open for a particular protocol.

There may be a specified protocol for handling remote desktop URLs, so you wouldn't have to register it if it already exists.
