The scope of this article is to cover a set of changes which can be put into place should an application be published and it behaves erratically.
The changes outlined within this article are all tweaks to the memshell module which is responsible of mirroring the application from the RDS Server session onto the client machine.
2X RemoteApplicationServer v10.5+

Once done, do as follows:
If the changes do not help, the changes can be reverted by simply deleting the dwords set above. The changes come into effect upon a new user session (not resuming a disconnected one). No reboot is necessary, just logging off and back on.
