Hi, I've got a windows 7 VM running on the network. Is it possible to RDP from a Mac OSX box or another windows 7 box but just run a particular application such as IE?

Maybe a short cut on the desktop would be good.

Only with use of group policy or third party program ( disable all, enable only IE ), Remote Desktop don't have such possibility

Hi

When running a RDP you can add a program into.

Whit this, you can only enter into that particularly program, and when the user disconnects the program, the RDP shutdown.

Check this:

You can set this, and add IP etc., then just save the rdp file.

You can use this directly or send to users to use it.

Check here how to create a rdp file with password.
