Customising the RDWeb web page

This outlines the customisation options with the default RDWeb page in Microsoft Server 2012, when using Remote Desktop Services with RDWeb. You can easily replace the logon and text at the top of the page.

As an example, you can change the default:

RDWeb_Default

To something like this:

RDWeb_Custom

Replaceable Company Logo Image

Add the new Icon into the image folder

  • Add the new icon into the images folder located in:

C:\Windows\Web\RDWeb\Pages\en-US\images\

Modify the site.xsl file

  • Backup this file:

C:\Windows\Web\RDWeb\Pages\Site.xsl

To e.g. C:\Windows\Web\RDWeb\Pages\Site.xsl.bak

The word Replaceable appears 3 times in this file. Do a find for this word to find the sections below:

Run notepad as admin and open. I find the easiest way to do this is to run Powershell as admin, and then launch notepad from there. That way if you close down notepad, you quickly launch as admin again without finding notepad.

Edit the file:

C:\Windows\Web\RDWeb\Pages\Site.xsl

Replaceable Company Logo Image

Change:

<img src=”../images/logo_02.png” width=”48″ height=”48″/>

To e.g.:

<img src=”../images/donkey_blue.png” width=”58″ height=”34″/>

Replaceable Company Logo Text and Application Type

Change:

<td class=”headingCompanyName”><xsl:value-of select=”@workspacename”/></td>

To e.g.:

<td class=”headingCompanyName”>msdonkey remote access</td>

Change:

<xsl:value-of select=”$strings[@id = ‘HeadingApplicationName’]”/>

To e.g.:
