Hi All,

How can I limit only certain users (eg. the manager only) to have access to MS Project 2007 in my Terminal Server 2003 environment ?

Because the terminal server is use by many people and we don't want to buy unused MS project 2007 for those people not using it.

is it through Group Policy or something like that ???

Thanks in advance.

Most simple way will be to resrict the permission on project 2007 install folder to specific users... so no other users will be able to execute anything..

ok, so how do I package or put the installation file ?

do I install the application first on the terminal server or configure it in the GPO ?

Quite easy actually.

CMD -> change user /install
install project 2007
once complete
CMD -> change user /execute

then change permissions on the executable as per above.

You can configure poledit to restrict the users but there may other options.

1. Dont configure the users as members of "Power Users" or/and "Administrator" in the local machine/domain.

2. Use "gpedit.msc" to configure local policy. To eliminate the policy to
affect local "Administrators" group, configure NTFS permission to deny
access to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\GroupPolicy".

3. Add the Win 2003 TS to Win 2003 domain - and use the nice GPO
to restrict users.

4. Disable files download from the Internet Explorer + restrict access
to local drive + disable local client disk mount/mapping to the
Terminal Server.


5. If the users use only one program - configure it to auto lunch when the user
Logon.
