i am needing to set up remote desktop users to enable certain users to access an application on my server.

users have xp machines, the server is server2008sbs - everything is working in terms of them being able to log in, so no problems there.

the issue i have is that when users log in they have access to to all the menus, programs etc.

Ideally i would like only what is on the dektop to be visible (ie. no statt button menu) - is this possible without restricing other operatons.

All the user needs access to is email (outlook), a printer and one application that resides on the c:\drive.

any suggestions?

You can try the same by applying local group policies, what all are requred and whats not..more precise tuning can be done by registery editing on server in case you want to disable few things like "right click" and so on.

also be sure that they are members only in the group Users on the server, which make them restricted users

It's called a RemoteApp - check the docs on your TS

A Remote App does not take users to the TS Desktop, but only loads up the app itself - to the user it appears to be running locally

Oh, and you can create more than 1 RemoteApp

Have 1 for their email, and 1 for their corp app. Even though they dont see the TS desktop, it will still map their default printer to it (the TS desktop is there, it's just that the users dont get to see it)

All the user will have is 2 RemoteApp shortcuts - which are basically heavily customised .RDP shortcuts
