Hi Pierre,


you can use the syntax "$Description$" (without the quotes) to replace the token with the contents of the Description field.

Hello Stefan,

Thanks for you answer.

But it's not working.


Are you sure that RoyalTS substitute the "$Description$" (without the quotes) with the value of the "Remote desktop" TAB ?

Hi Pierre,


I just did some tests and it's working fine for me. Are you running an older version of Royal TS maybe? Can you provide a screenshot of the Advanced -> Program screen?

Hello Stefan,

Obviously, my version is 4.01.60406.10000 ==> Not the last one !

I'm going to upgrade.

Here is my "Advanced -> Program screen"

Hello Stefan, i'm using an "old" version of Royal TS : 4.01.60406.10000


I'm going to upgrade and to try again.

I let you know the result.

In fact, we are using Cyberark and the gool is to connect to a server thru CyberArk Proxy and to have only one line to change when you duplicate an entry.


Thanks for you help

Hi Pierre,


as mentioned in my first reply, you need to use the following syntax: "$Description$" (without quotes). Note that you need to use $ instead of %
