Restrict users from opening unlicensed applications from "File explorer"

Hi

We have a Citrix XenApp farm and multiple Terminal Servers.
We offer them a range of application via our platforms, but for the use of for example MS Access, we have an issue.

User A: we give an MS Access shortcut
User B: we don't give an MS Access shortcut

But User B will always be able to open MS Access files via File explorer, so in fact he uses MS Access => he needs a license.

What is the most common way to restrict this?
Via NTFS security on the application's executable?

Thanks for your answer.
