Of course you can...

What application?

If it one that is installed only on one pc and you are trying to multiply the users by remotely running it, most apps will not allow more than one session opened.

Other apps must be locally installed prior to autorunning it in a script.

Remote auditor apps work no problems remotely ran.

Good Luck

Sure.
Just add a START command in the logon script, followed by the path to the app you want to run. For example, say that you wanted to run C:\Program Files\Application\App.exe to run. Put this in the logon script file:

START "C:\PROGRAM FILES\APPLICATION\APP.EXE"

And that will start the EXE file, then the logon script will continue doing its thing.

hope this helps
