Yet another RDP workflow. This one works exclusively with Microsoft Remote Desktop and lists all of the defined desktops. It works reliably, regardless of the state of the Microsoft Remote Desktop application, this has been a problem with other workflows. You can select from the desktop list or continue typing to filter down to just the desktop you want. It's on Packal already. https://github.com/packal/repository/raw/master/com.tedwise.rdp/microsoft_remote_desktop.alfredworkflow
I need everyone's help. Microsoft's Remote Desktop app is barely scriptable by throwing keystrokes at the app. That works poorly and breaks constantly with updates. We need that app to be scriptable in order to control it reliably. Microsoft doesn't want to implement scripting support. But they have a mechanism to vote for feature requests. Please follow the below link and vote the max (3 votes) for the feature: https://remotedesktop.uservoice.com/forums/287834-remote-desktop-for-mac/suggestions/9280833-allow-the-application-to-be-controlled-with-apples Even if you don't use Remote Desktop I'd appreciate the help.
Ever since Microsoft released a new major version - 8.0 - the RDP workflow has been completely broken. Microsoft, for reasons known only to them, removed the ability to _search_ the defined servers. Since they don't provide an AppleScript dictionary for the app, the only way to script opening a specific server was to use the search function, so the workflow was broken. Microsoft just released 8.0.8 which finally adds the search functionality _back_ into the application. The workflow still didn't work so it needed to be tweaked to the new UI. Everything is back to working normally now for the workflow. You can find it on Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/microsoft-remote-desktop Keep in mind that even though this is working the same way it always did before, it's still fragile since it uses UI scripting since there's no exposed scripting support. That means that a new version pop-up window will stop the workflow from working and having focus on a remote desktop instead of the main application will also stop the workflow from working. Until Microsoft adds scripting support, this is the best I can do.
