Publish apps installed on a network server from a 2012 R2 RDS server

It is not possible to publish an app that is installed at a network server from the UNC path. So I found at the comments of this TechNet article:
That this is possible using PowerShell of course


New-RDRemoteApp -CollectionName [collection_name] -DisplayName [remote_app_display_name] -FilePath "\servershareexecutable.exe"

I modified it because I had some issues with the share. Searching I came up that I first needed to make a shortcut of the executable on the public desktop and then create the app and finally I get it work like this:

New-RDRemoteApp -Alias "alias" -CollectionName "collection name" -DisplayName "display name" -FilePath "C:UsersPublicDesktopapp.lnk" -IconPath "\servershareexecutable.exe"
