We have just obtained server 2012 R2, VMWare.

If we have a folder created by the Administrator, and consequently on  everyone's desktop, HOW can that folder be restricted so that If ANY remote desktop user opens the folder, it is restricted, and will not open for anyone else?

Reviewed; however, not quite what I was looking for:

Scenario:  1.  Folder shortcut on  ALL remote user's desktops.
                   2.  A user (let's say user #1) opens the folder, and "runs" a program within the folder.
                   3.  All user's Other than user #1 then will be unable to open the Folder on their desktop until User #1 closes the folder.

Hope the above helps.

May I ask your reason for doing this? There may a different approach to your solution.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

But the answer to your question is NO. Windows has no such functionality built in at all.

Use a terminal server with logins set to 1. Only one user would be able to login at one time.

in response to NewVillageIT:

Reason:  I want to be able to give users access to multiple versions of quickbooks.... but NOT, run the multi-user version of quickbooks.  We are a CPA firm, and can potentially have multiple users running their own version of quickbooks and opening various client data files....  Would not be unusual to have two different users running QB2012, and each user have open a different client.

Out current solution is QB installed on each desktop.

Thanks
