Aaaaand my normal comment here. More information please.

What OS?
What is the server doing?
Is it just one user at a time or one user period?
Do you have a terminal server licensing box?

Sorry Compuman145,

The os is Server 2003 Standard, the server is mainly managing magnetic keys to enter into a building, it render logs and im able to control every key for each employe, The reason is that if there more than 1 user logged at the same time the program wont open. So I need only one user logged at the time.

You could set a local policy, or a domain policy (GPO), depending if the server is workgroup or domain joined. Group Policy is recommended, but Local Policy will also work. The setting I am referring to is available in Server 2003, and will limit the number of simultaneous remote connections (this setting does not apply to local connections, such as KVM, BMC, iLO, or DRAC connections).

To set this as a Local Policy, open the Group Policy Object Editor (gpedit.msc at CMD).
Navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Terminal Services, and find the Setting called "Limit number of connections". Double click, and click the box to enable this setting, and set the number to 1.

Again, this will only allow 1 remote connection into this server at a time, which assuming this is a server in a datacenter that people always remote into, this will solve your problem.

EDIT: Also, since Compuman145 mentioned Terminal Services and Licensing above, TS CALs are only required if this setting is set to 3 or above. You would have to have the appropriate licenses, stand up a TS Licensing box, and point this server to that box. 2 users is the default limit without configuring TS Licensing, so dropping that to 1 does not require any licensing changes or configuration.
