All server apps should be restructured to run on Windows Server systems without a GUI stack, or with all GUI components found on a Windows Client system; this is a Windows Server 8 best practice. This talk explains how to ensure your server apps will work in Windows Server 8 when the GUI shell is uninstalled, how to ensure your app is remotely manageable, and how this positions your app for no GUI stack. This talk will also cover how to use PowerShell to quickly and easily add and/or enhance your remote management capabilities.
