Virtualize windows environments on a Remote Desktop Server?

Is it possible to run a Remote Desktop Server (publishing applications) in such a way that multiple users can have their own custom windows environment?

So that if one user updates windows components on a piece of software, that update does not apply to other users?

What I'm looking for is a way to publish a developer's environment on a Remote Desktop Server in such a way that changes made by User A to that environment don't affect User B.

Is that possible?  Like a user-specific c:\windows?

Thanks.

you would need to use a VDI environment in this case where each user logs into his own virtual PC, and not a shared terminal services server.
