Resolution

Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.To resolve this issue, make sure that the value of the ProtectionMode registry entry that is on the terminal server computer is set to 1. To do this, follow these steps.

Note Before you follow these steps, determine whether the registry settings are applied by using a domain policy. If the registry settings are applied by using a default domain policy, you must change the value of the ProtectionMode registry entry by using the default domain policy. In this scenario, if you change the value of the ProtectionMode registry entry on a particular terminal server, the value may be reset after you restart the computer. If this value is reset, the issue may occur again.
  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
  3. In the details pane, double-click ProtectionMode, make sure that 1 appears in the Value Data box, and then click OK.
  4. Close Registry Editor.
  5. Restart the computer.
