Using group policy to restrict access of software for some users on terminal services?

hi guys,

If I wanted some people to have microsoft office applications available to them when they log onto terminal services and others to not have access, then how would I implement this with group policies?

Many thanks

Setup some manditory profiles (make sure they are set as the "Terminal Services Profile" on the user object in AD users and computers.)

Then you can have a non office profile and an office profile :)

Not done with GPO's though =/

You can create GPO with Software Restrictions and the use GPO Filtering to target only that group which shouldn't have to use software on your TS

About GPO Filtering

but I would suggest to change NTFS settings on folders with that programs to only specified groups. Others won't be able to run software.
