When activating terminal server licensing on Windows 2000 Server I get the following error message.

"The Licensing wizard cannot connect to the license server registry. Check your network connections, and then retry the operation.

Message Number:0x35."

The licensing service is installed on the same server, as terminal server. I get this message from the console of the server, in terminal server licensing as soon as I right click the server name and click activate.

btw my server is already in service pack 4
