• Added two rebranded versions

  • Added usewindowsshell=yes/no in AppControl.ini to force standard Windows shell in registry at reboot

  • Added a title for Application Panel minimizing button
  • Fixed logoff bug in edge cases when using alternate shell (taskbar, floatingpanel)
  • Encryption Oracle Remediation policy is not reset at every boot anymore and it is only set by Setup and UpdateRelease if it was not already defined by the server administrator
  • Working area when using the TSplus Taskbar: Even when setting "Full screen" in the Customize Taskbar, the application was not using the full screen area. It is fixed now
  • Overlap Taskbar: Even when setting "Overlap taskbar" in the Customize Taskbar, the application was not doing it. It is fixed now

    • It provide a better and less confusing GUI for the administrators
    • To warrant the expected behavior
  • WinXShell alternative to Windows Shell on W10/W2016
    This new release includes the proper replacement of Windows Shell. It includes the use of a customized version of Classic Shell to display the Start button feature. Please note that for system with a license for 3, 5 or 10 users, This Shell alternative will never apply. It is only for more "demanding" servers where saving logon resources is crutial that we do propose the use of WinXshell. One fresh setup, the default setting is to use WinXShell. On Update Release, if nothing has been set before, the default setting is not to use it.

  • The HTML5 / Web Server has been enhanced and its latest release is included

And of course this 1.70 release includes all enhancements and fixes of the former 11.60 release


This version fixes a compatibility issue with Microsoft latest updates on Windows 10 RTM 32 and 64 bits and Windows 10 1607 32 bits.


This is a corrective release.

During the past week several issues created troubles to customers updating their former releases of TSplus.
This Update is addressing these issues and hopefully will avoid them to continue.

  • When updating, sometime, the changed HTTP/HTTPS port was turn back to the port 80/443. This is fixed now.
  • When updating and changing the RDP port number, the new port number was blocked by the Windows firewall. This is fixed now.
  • On W10/2016, to support RemoteApp over 16 concurrent users we did disabled the capability to reconnect a disconnected session. Now this will be limited only for RemoteApp session when more than 14 concurrent session are already running.
  • On W10/2016, the new WinXshell was published for users (not admin accounts) right from the first connection.
    The WinXshell is still not completled as we want it to be and customers claims that it is not what they wish. To avoid problem, but to keep the benefit of being able to start more than 16 "full Desktop" on these systems we now do display it only after 12 open sessions.
    Also, for not English systems, this release of WinXshell is displaying the text using the system language. On this specific important matter, we expect to complete a good solution in November.
  • On the AdminTool Session Preference tab, the capability to enable/disable the WinXshell alternative to the Windows Shell was not available. It is fixed now.
  • In the Advanced security tab, requesting to block RDP client connection was also blocking HTML5. It is fixed now

Important comment: If, after downloading and applying this Update Release, a customer having change the RDP port (3389) have a problem to connect
using, for example a RemoteApp client, the solution is simple: Change the HTTP port --> apply, restore the HTTP port --> apply.
Doing so the proper rule on the Windows firewall will be added and the problem will be fixed.
