Terminal server running on server 2008 ent  x32

Hi there,
Our terminal server running on server 2008 was working fine till today the users started to have
the error while visiting the remote desktop via https://server.mydomain.com
 ****the remote session was disconnected because license store creation failed with access denied******* on windows 8.1.  The clients using windows 7 are fine.  I have checked the logs, no clue.  I thought may be the license management would through some light, but that also is fine.  I have a fear that we only had 40 licenses (user CAL) for our terminal server but the licenses management gives no clue.  
Some points to note:
- If its the licensing issue then why windows 7 machines have no error.
- Tried to run this:  no luck, it says it does not apply to your OS:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2782802
-Have no idea which one to pick from here:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc756826(v=ws.10).aspx
-Cannot find MSLicensing Key here:

Need help please.

David,
Thanks for the reply.  In my question I have already mentioned the last link.  I cannot find the key MSLicensing and the Store key in my case in the client(windows 8.1) registry.  I have tried 1 to 7 different computers(windows 8.1).  Need help please.
Thanks

Basically I have to re-create the session physically on each and every machine by opening up there remote desktop program and logging in with any user, this created the key in registry and from there onwards any user logging onto the remote session was good.
