We have a need to use the Windows 7 RDP feature to allow one of our field managers to remote into one of our production PCs to use only one of the applications.
> We only want to allow access to the "one" app.
> The Production PC is running Windows 7 Pro/64 bit SP1.
I have attempted to use "gpedit.msc" to set the "Remote Session Environment" (Currently I am testing with the "Notepad.exe" program)
> The full path to the gpedit setting is: User Configuration => Administrative Templates => Remote Desktop Services => Remote Desktop Session Host => Remote Session Environment
> When testing if Notepad comes up when I RDP into the box = Fails, acts as if nothing was changed.
> I also noted that when attempting the set the "session disconnected" and 'idle session" limits, these did not work either.
I played around with the "gpedit - Computer Configuration" and the registray "Terminal Services" setting, only to lock up my test PC and having to re-install Windows 7 to recover.
I know there must be a way to do this and it appars that something within Windows 7 Pro that is preventing this from working...
Could use some suggestions here, anyone done this before, or have any input?
