Terminal Server User App

Posted on 2005-04-13

I am running a terminal server of a Win 2003 server.  I am trying to find a way to have a different program open depending on which user logs in...

Right now I have a program set to open using the RDP configuration...But this way I can only set 1 program for all users, including Admin...

Any help would be appreciated..

    1) If you are using AD, run dsa.msc, select a user, enter "Environment" + tick and fill in the "Start the following program" option.
    2) If your server is in standalone mode, use "Administrative Tools/Computer Management/ double click on a user account, select Terminal Server services profile" and set the desired program.

    Hope this helps.
