I have a situation.

We want to block access to an application for users, but only when they log onto certain Terminals

At my site the users will be running their desktops via Remote Desktop, either accessing it from PC's or Thin Clients.

I need to prevent a program from being run when any user logs onto one of 4 thin clients in particular for security reasons.  If that user logs onto any other machine they need to be able to run the app.

Create a GPO that includes that 4 computers (not the users) and deny them acess to that particular application.
The GPO will be:

Computer configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Software restrictions Policies > Additional Rules
Right click and choose NEW HASH RULE
Then choose the path to the EXE of the program you want to block and choose NOT ALLOWED.

Apply this GPO to the 4 computers.

I spent some time resolving this myself.

1.

Create the Shortcut in GP Prefs

2.

Set the scoping to not apply the shortcut to the Terminal Devices with the names of the devices used
If anyone wants a step by step I am happy to provide
