Hi, here is what i am trying to achieve:

- create a  few new user

- new user can ONLY OPEN a single application I have assigned 

- new user cannot view any other application that is installed on the server (including IE, Notepad... ALL to be hidden)

- as the application also can run with plugin, I want to allow user to be able to upload their own plugin into the 'plugin folder' (which I will specify), and they can run it together with the application

- other users should NOT see each others plugin installed

 

Is this achievable?

You will need to upgrade to Windows 2008 and Windows 7 for clients.

Thanks Bleepin Madman for your respond.

 

Ok. I will get a windows 2008.

If it is Windows 2008, how can I set this features?

 

Can you tell me why does it matter on the client end Windows OS?

Sorry if i didn't state clearly.

I want to provide RDP access for other users. It is not a LAN environment.

I will let them RDP directly to the server. I have tried to create users on server 2003 and 2008. The new user is under "Standard User"group. They can view and access other application that is installed by the admin. Still trying to figure out how to limit the program. Able to provide more detailed guide?

Hi,

A good way  is to publish only the application and not full desktop.

Two familiar ways doing it is :

* RemoteApp - (free, and part of windows 2008 terminal server features)

* Citrix publish application, if you have citrix on your environment..
