I have a software that does not like it when it is opened up on 2 workstations at the same time from the same user. (Office Environment). I would like to restrict users from logging on to more than one computer simultaneously. Causes roaming profile issues as well.

I want the users to be able to log onto all the computers in the office. However, I want them only to be able to be logged into one computer at a time.
