"method '~' of object '~' failed" for some users on Terminal Server

I have a legacy VB application that isn't playing nice on Terminal Server.

Some users receive the "method '~' of object '~' failed" error when they run the application, while others do not.

If I copy over the affected users profile with a working user profile, they can run the application.  This ends up causing other strange errors in the event log however.  If I delete the profile at this point, and the user logs in, they can still run the application.

I traced down the initial "cause" to MDAC by using the component checker, and have removed and reinstalled MDAC so that it shows up with the version that is required for this app (2.7 SP1).

Can anyone shed some light on this?

It could be issues with registry access, or user security.

I hope this helps !

I believe I tracked it down to the application requiring an installed printer to function, and the user(s) in question did not have a printer installed - or one that TS didn't have drivers for.

THanks for your input SysExpert.
