Using Terminal Server on 2003 - Whenever an admin logs into the box they get all of the error messages that the users would have received. So if an application crashes, the user does not get the error message, but two days later when an admin logs on to the terminal server they get the message.

 

Any idea why this is happening?

From Microsoft:

"For some third-party applications, pop-up messages cannot be seen in a Terminal Services session. This is because there is a different security context or desktop for the connected session that does not display the application’s pop-up messages. The pop-up messages in these instances will go directly to the console. If you need to see these messages, connect to the console session using Remote Desktop Connection from the command line or the Remote Desktops snap-in."

Here's the whole thing:
