RDP and terminal services (administrative mode)are the exact same thing,, the name changed for marketing purposes.  RDP give the users access to his desktop just has he was sitting at the PC,,, of if you set up some NTFS permissions somehow to only allow access to the one particular program the user wouldn't be able to get to other progams via the local machine or the remote machine... IE disallow access to all other programs via NTFS permissions.

yeah,, that would be the simplest way,, that way the user would get an access denied error whenever they attempted to run the program
