Desktop will not load in Terminal Server session
Posted on 2004-08-23
One of my terminal servers just started acting up and will not load the desktop for standard users. The desktop will load properly for administrators.
What I have just found is that if I try to logon as a standard user and hit ctrl-alt-end, I am able to open taskmgr and launch programs such as notepad and word, but otherwise, the terminal session just shows a blue screen with no icons or taskbar.
I have tried switching terminal from application mode to admin mode and then back to application mode with no success. I have also tried uninstalling the terminal components and re-installing. I have also renamed the user account under c:/documents and settings/etc... with no success.
