Cause

This issue can occur if the following key exists in the registry:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Providers\Type 001
This registry key interferes with the ability of the Kerberos authentication protocol to function correctly and prevents the Terminal Server Licensing service from creating or obtaining a key from the following location:
\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\S-1-5-18
Error code 80090016 means "key set does not exist."

To resolve this issue, delete the relevant registry key. Follow these steps:
  1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
