I have created a RDP connection to our application server that will start a .mdb file. Unfortunately, I am receiving this error when I try to connect:

An Error (193) occurred while creating user logon...

Within the Programs tab on RDP I have filled in:

Program path and file name:
CRM.mdb

Start in the following folder:
D:\AccessDatabases

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

Is D a mapped drive?

You might try running access.exe
and using D:\AccessDatabases\CRM.mdb as a parameter

Alot easier just to put a shortcut to the database in the "%alluserprofile%\start menu\programs\startup" folder on the terminal server.

I do not have D:\ mapped on my local machine
D: is a separate local hard drive on the application server running terminal services.

The need is to have multiple users run the database file from an RDP connection on their desktop. Currently, I have the database file store on the application server within the local hard drive D: within the folder AccessDatabases. The file name is CRM.mdb

I have tried, now:

Program path and file name:
D:\AccessDatabases\CRM.mdb

Start in the following folder:
D:\AccessDatabases\

But, I still receive the same error. What I am doing wrong?

Thanks!

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Will xuserx2000's suggestion of dropping a shortcut in the profile startup work for you?

Also, the problem with running the program from the startup menu is some users run multiple programs from RDP on the app server. I will need seperate RDP links for seperate programs.

I am thinking there's got to be a way to start the database file from RDP.

Ok. I tried using a batch file and that seems to work. I have the RDP opening the crm.bat, and the crm.bat runs the .mdb file. The batch file reads like this:

@echo off
D:\AccessDatabases\CRM.mdb

My only problem right now is when running the RDP i see the DOS screen pop up with the Access database file. Is there a way to hide the DOS window?

Thanks!

You could use a vbs instead...
save as crm.vbs

CreateObject("wscript.shell").run "D:\AccessDatabases\CRM.mdb", 0
