I am currently trying to access Windows apps remotely using FreeRDP. I followed the steps found Here, and hit a stonewall. Apparently, Winconn is incompatible with 15.04, so I have no way of configuring RemoteApps easily in Ubuntu. So, I need to know if there is another way to get this done. Thanks to all that reply.
This application has been unmaintained for a long time. Either look for another application or take over maintenance yourself.
This is probably just a dependency issue, I tried installing the package in a 15.04 VM with:
wget https://launchpad.net/~realender/+archive/ubuntu/winconn/+files/winconn_0.2.14-1_all.deb sudo dpkg winconn_0.2.14-1_all.deb
That resulted in the message that dependencies to
freerdp-x11couldn't be resolved.
libfreerdp1isn't an installable package it's contents seem to have been split up into individual packages some of them are:
libfreerdp-cache1.1 libfreerdp-codec1.1 libfreerdp-gdi1.1 libfreerdp-rail1.1 libfreerdp-utils1.1. So install these with apt-get and find the missing ones through file listing of packages among these or install them all. Then run
sudo dpkg --force-all -i winconn_0.2.14-1_all.deband check if the application is running as it should.
Take over maintenance, build new packages from source for the release you want to use with updated dependencies.

Such statements are useless when you ask for help. They are rather counterproductive, other users feel tempted to answer with "yep, it obviously is incompatible" without looking further. Always provide detailed descriptions and error messages.
it seems the author created a github. Didn't try it yet but it should be here: https://github.com/RealEnder/winconn
you should just:
git clone https://github.com/RealEnder/winconn
hope this helps.
