I can log in with a remote desktop user (not administrator) to a terminal server and run a program, but when I put this in the "start the following program on connection" I'm getting an access denied error to the program.  The server is 2008.

why not add it a startup shortcut inside your startup folder
rt click Start
click open
dbl click Programs
dbl click Startup
add a shortcut in there to launch programs
works great for me
I think what u are seeing is a permissions problem

What's nice about putting it in the start program in the RDP profile is that when they exit the program, it logs off their session.  I'm just not understanding why it's not a problem when I log in and double-click the shortcut vs. putting it in the start program in the RDP configuration file.
Doing it your way will give them access to the desktop which is what I'm trying to avoid, but it may come to that if I can't find the solution.

Hello I tried this with RDP logging on to TS server 03 and I entered the program info into the RDP options  from the shortcut properties on the 2003 Terminal Server  and it worked fine.
I logged into the TS and brought up the properties of the short cut pasted them to Note pad and logged off and entered the settings from options before logging back in.

I have a 2003 server with this same program on it.  I'm thinking that it will work there.  I'm wondering if this is a 2008 terminal server bug.

I found the problem.  I had installed TS RemoteApp which I was going to configure later.  It has a setting in it that restricts the programs a user can run on startup.  I had to change it to allow both listed and unlisted programs.
If you go into TS RemoteApp Manager and click on the "RDP Settings Change" link it will bring up a control panel.  Click on the Terminal Server tab and there at the bottom is an option box "Access to unlisted programs".  Tada.  Eventually I'm going to configure this app as a RemoteApp.
