Terminal Servers - specific apps for certain users

Hi guys,

We have a few 2008 Terminal servers here, and i'd like to install MS Office just for 10 users or so, and not have others see or access the MS office programs.

How can this be done?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would just set the folder permissions/security of the MS Office for just the 10 users.

You should also manually delete the MS Office shortcuts from all users public folder and just copy them for the 10 specific users.

As long as you set the MS Office folder permissions for just 10 users it shouldn't matter if other users can see the shortcuts.  They won't be able to run/access MS Office anyways.

Please ensure that your Server is in RDS Application mode i.e. you need to install the RDS role from Server Manager. Once it is done you can install the Office.

Please ensure that you don't install Office before installating RDS Role.
