OpenEvent Failed in Win2000 Terminal service client

Hello all,

In windows 2000 server system, I am creating an event in a Service application and I am opening same event in another Win32 application by calling OpenEvent Function. This is working fine in all win2000 servers but if I logged on to that system using terminal service client from another system, then the OpenEvent function fails with return value 2 ( file open error ). I tried all possibilites with passing different values to CreateEvent and OpenEvent functions but OpenEvent in another application always fails.

Please Help to solve this problem.

See http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dllproc/synchro_5myc.asp - it states:

"Terminal Services: The name can have a "Global\" or "Local\" prefix to explicitly open an object in the global or session name space. The remainder of the name can contain any character except the backslash character (\)."
