Logging into a remote desktop session causes an access violation on an application running on the remote computer
Posted on 2014-09-10
This problem only appears on Windows Server 2012.
We are hosting a desktop application running on our server, which people access and run through remote desktop.
We leave the desktop application permanently running and users connect and disconnect their sessions to use it.
We are finding that when a user connects, the desktop application closes with an access violation - looking in the event log it is clear the error happens when the remote user connects.
Can anyone shed any light on this? Unfortunately googling this problem tends to come up with problems for users trying to connect with remote desktop and getting an error. Just to be very clear - the users are not having a problem connecting to the server with remote desktop, our problem is that a desktop application running on the server is crashing when a remote user connects to the server.
