    If I understand what you are trying to do correctly you are trying to create an environment in which a remote user can enter though the firewall and be completely locked down to where they can only use a single application.

    There are several ways to do this.

    Option 1:
    The easiest way would be create a separate security group and call it restricted remote user

    Create a new GPO and call it Restricted Remote User Policy
    Add the Restricted Remote User security group to the Remote user policy and give it read permissions.

    navigate to  User Config -> System ->Custom User Interface
    Set this to enabled and define the program you would like to start on startup.
    You can also launch any logon script you like though the same GPO object from the
    User Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Scripts(Logon Logoff)
