Disable program when user disconnects from workstation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I'm struggling with a little problem.

    For a health care center we recently deployed a domain infrastructure based on server 2012 R2 standard with Windows 10 Professional workstations. This way the workers are able to use diffrent computers but still access their own files.

    The problem we ran into is as follows; the electronic patient file software only allows 1 instance of the software per IP. So when a coworker disconnects from the workstation and the software is still running another user is able to login to windows but won't be able to use this software.

    Does someone here has any suggestion to tackle this problem?

    Thanks is advance

  • Hi Chris,

    Did coworkers access the software via the remote desktop connection or locally?

    By default, When user account logoff, Windows must close all programs (programs cannot continue running if no user is logged in). 

    If you are using the remote connection, when a session is in a disconnected state, running programs are kept active even though the user is no longer actively connected. By default, these disconnected sessions are maintained for an unlimited time on the server.

    If you enable Set time limit for disconnected sessions policy setting, disconnected sessions are deleted from the server after the specified amount of time. To enforce the default behavior that disconnected sessions are maintained for an unlimited time, select Never. If you have a console session, disconnected session time limits do not apply.
