Prenter User from Accessing RD on Server 2008

I would like to prevent user from remotely logging into my Server 2008; however, I would like my user to still able to access the Remote App I setup on the server. Is this possible.

That make zero sense.
The OP has a RemoteApp which they'd like the end user to use
What they want to prevent is the end-user from going to Start|Programs|Remote Desktop Connections and then putting in the name of the terminal server and logging on.
That is quite hard to do

Near the end are two suggestions worth testing

It may be possible.
Check on the server under Local Users and Groups.
People who can logon remotely get that right from the Remote Desktop Users group.

When my RemoteApp sends Outlook email, it does so as the user I was when I set up the RemoteApp, not who I am as I am logged on.
So it is entirely possible that you may be able to cut a user out from Remote logons, and yet still use RemoteApp.

The only way to know for sure is to try it.

I did try it, but the when I took removed my test user from the remote desktop group, I could not access the Remote App using my test user.

So you want to be able to allow a person to connect to a RD Session host and get a RemoteApp but not be able to get a full desktop on that same session host? I would be very surprised if there is such a setting. I have never seen a setting like that other than do prevent all RDP access, which would block RemoteApp as well.

Now maybe you can run a login script that can somehow detect the difference between a RemoteApp session and a full desktop session, and it could logout the user if it was a desktop session.

I believe running a script is the only possible way. I will work on it to see if that is the only solution thank you.
