Log in to Server 2012 VM as /admin (console) only

I need to be able to limit the remote desktop login on Server 2012 to /admin mode only.  Basically I have an app that needs to be running all the time and when installing it as a service it doesn't run correctly.  Unfortunately until their company comes up with a major upgrade (supposed to be coming) this is what I need to do.  I completely understand that it is NOT best practice but I'm stuck.  As it is I keep the server logged in and just disconnect my remote desktop session.  This is really the only software running on this server (I had an extra license and just used it in a vm).

I will typically be the only one accessing this server.  I just want to always access it on the same session even if accessing via remote desktop through RWA (server 2012R2 Essentials).  Is there a group policy that will limit this??

No. The "console" session went away with 2008/Vista and is simply not available in the architecture anymore.

I believe I have found a solution on my own.  There is a setting in group policy to limit RDC to 1 (or as many as you want) connection(s).  I limited the scope to this one server and it appears to work just fine.  I discovered this after searching for a while literally moments after posting this question.
