This article describes how to use the register command to register a program so that it runs in a system or user global context in Windows 2000 Terminal Services.
Some programs may expect only one user to use the program at a time. In the Terminal Services multiple-user environment, some files (such as dynamic-link library, or DLL, files) may not open correctly if more than one user tries to use them. These programs must run in a global context to establish resources that are common to more than one user. You can use the register command to register a program so that it is available globally to the system and to all users on the system.
Note that a program's registration data is recognized only when the program is installed. If you use the register command for a program that is already installed on the server, the changes do not take effect until the next time that the program is installed.
You must log on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to use the register command.
