Server 2012 Remote Desktop IE Settings

Hello,

We have a new Win Server 2012 (not R2) installation with Remote Desktop Services installed.

Our goal is to use this for Quickbooks 2014.  We have RDS working and Quickbooks installed.  The only issue we are running into is when launching Quickbooks, we get a pop-up advising us to set Internet Explorer's Internet Security Zone to Medium (it is currently set to high).

We are unable to adjust it down to Medium.  We found the Local Policy settings dictating the zone security level (which was "Not configured"), but when we try to change that to Medium (or any lower setting), and then reboot, IE's Internet Security zone is still set to "Custom".  

Is there anything in a Remote Desktop Server configuration that would be over-ruling what Local Policy is set to?

I would make sure that enhanced security is turned off for IE.

Here's a page with screenshots on how to do that:
