Windows 2003 Terminal Services and ACT errors

I am running Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition, with Terminal Services installed.  I have a bunch of users who connect to the server to use ACT! (A contacts database applications) and print from it.  I was running this on W2K with no problem, but since I upgraded to W2003K, now I get these errors:

Since you've upgraded,  have you updated any patches to the ACT OS?  I've had this similar problem, and the patch install fixed it.  

Let me know.

I didn't patch it, because I didn't think there were any patches out there - the ACT version is 6.0.3.979.  I have all the latest updates for W2003K installed.

That hotfix says it's only for problems running Tsprof.exe, Mmc.exe, or Usrmgr.exe.  I'm running Act!

When you run any program that uses the API functions of WTSSetUserConfig or WTSQueryUserConfig to set or to retrieve user information, the utility may generate an access violation error and quit unexpectedly when it manages certain user accounts.

Ask ACT! Programmers, if they use this :)

Well, I would give it a try, but they want $99 to email them to ask for the hotfix!!!  Is there any other way to obtain that hotfix?

WeHeCommented:
1) normally they mail you this hotfixes for free.
2) yes, if you have a PSS contract :)

I would like to try and install them, but before I can email Microsoft they ask for my credit card.

Is there anything else I can do that might fix the problem?

WeHeCommented:

Thanks Wehe, but it was actually answered here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Windows_Server_2003/Q_21211576.html

I posted this question, and one about the server just shutting down.  This problem was solved when I solved the print driver problems.  But thanks for your help, and your generous offer to mail the hotfixes, so you get the points!

Hello - came across this problem after a server re-build.
I spent hours searching for problems - removed antivirus, setup new profiles - did everything!
I found the problem was related to the 'default' printer.

I have a Ricoh MFC printer as default and the driver was causing all the problems!
Changed the default printer to our other network printer Kyocera - and no problems!
