I managed to get TS setup so that it auto-launches a application when
anyone TS into the server, but that also means that admins get the same
restrictions. What I need is to setup all users except admin level users
so that they get two icons (the two applications) on their desktop when
they TS into the server.

Any documents, links, or other help is appreciated.

You can configure all this with a Group Policy.
Use folder redirection of the Desktop and Start Menu to give your
users a custom desktop.

Apply to users only, not to admins through security filtering of the

Just as an update, I used 816100 to set the server and this worked
perfectly.

Now, if I could figure out how to setup a normal desktop of MS Outlook
apps and the other two apps, and limit the users to only those apps, I
could use TS sessions only instead of domain-logons from their
workstations.

Thanks again.

Create a custom desktop folder on a network share. Put shortcuts to
your applications in this folder. Use folder redirection in your
GPO to make this custom folder the default desktop for the users:

User Configuration - Windows Settings - Folder Redirection

Vera, all users are already setup with roaming profiles, redirected
folders, and such. This lets them login anywhere in the company at any
location and get all their files.

As I'm a TS noob, how would I configure the above suggestion to allow it
to only take effect for TS users sessions and not the normal logins?

Thanks again.

Loopback processing does just that.
Check the KB articles 260370 and 231287, referenced above.
