Changed GPO Start program on connection but remote logins still using old entry

I had the setting for RDS sessions that I set from the group policy on my domain controller,
the "machine settings" "Start program on connection" was enabled and set to "c:\program files (x86)\alarmwin\alarmwin.exe"
once i set this setting I tested the connection by longing in to my RD host server, all the settings worked but I realized I had gotten the name of the .exe wrong, as i got an error stating it could not find alarmwin.exe....
well that's because it does not exist, so I updated the setting in GP, to the correct setting "c:\program files (x86)\alarmwin\monitor.exe" and tried to connect again...
but it keeps trying to start the same program c:\program files (x86)\alarmwin\alarmwin.exe.

do I need to clear out a setting since I tried to connect before
