NTVDM encountered a hard error

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsnt.terminalserver.misc (More info?)

Hi everyone,

I'm currently have a few issues with one my clients (40 users) and their
terminal server. Everything runs fine, except for 1 application. They're
running Sol6 (an accounting package I believe), and certain users (who have
the same security access as 80% of the other users) are getting the
following error when trying to load Sol6:
"NTVDM encountered a hard error"

I've been ripping my hair out trying to work out why this is happening.
I've done some testing, and have found that when making one of the affected
users an Administrator or Domain Admin, the error goes away. Obviously,
this is definately not the solution to take.

Anyone have any ideas?

Environment: Windows Svr 2003 TS. PDC - Small Business Server 2000.

Thanks for your time,

Kevin

    Hi Kevin

    I´ve this problem in my implementation. To resolve i change in Environment
    key, the HOMEDRIVE parameter, for all users, using one script.

  2. Well I have been fighting exactly these same issues as above, but found this link to a program called XP_FIX.exe (140kb)

    That one solved the issue for me.
