Program For Administrator Access Only

Posted on 2012-08-13

Hello Experts,

I am required to install a program on our Terminal Server. What I would like to know is what is the appropriate way to configure the install of the application so that only the Administrator has access to it?

On my first attempt I had the program listed in the startup folder of the administrators program list. When running, the program is minimized to the system tray.

The problem I had was all standard users could access and configure it which is not the desired result as although it is not an issue for the users to see it in the system tray I have to restrict them actual access to the program.

I am running Windows Server 2008 and users connect by logging on to their Remote Desktop via Terminal Services.

    You can make the folder the program is installed in restricted access That may stop the users who don't need access.
