    Normally you can use GPO Policies, about with application can use each user. Some applications when you install saw only for my user or for all, you can install with this user and choose only for my user. But the right way it's using User policies.

    Just install it for all users; once it's installed, open the "All Users" start menu folder, and move the shortcuts into the start menu folder in the user's profile.
    In addition, you can setup a group "ApplicationName", and give only this group (apart from System and Administrators) permissions to the program folder of the application. Add the user to this group; this gives you a lot more flexibility.
