Excel Shutting Down on Windows NT Server (Terminal Server, Citrix Metaframe)

Q: Excel Shutting Down on Windows NT Server (Terminal Server, Citrix Metaframe)

I don't know if this is help for our server or Excel I am looking for. Here is the issue...

Whenever one lady is logged into a session on our server, she opens a word document that has an Excel worksheet embedded in it. The second she tries to click on the Excel worksheet, Dr. Watson makes a call and hits me with the following message...

Error in Excel.exe
Access Violation (0xC0000005), Address: 0x304632a3

When she tries to just open the Excel program, she gets this error:

Compile Error in Hidden Module: ThisWorkBook

This only happens to her, should I make a new profile on the server for her? Is there something in Excel I can do? I am so lost and MS Knowledge base has been of no help to me.

Preferred Solution: Excel Shutting Down on Windows NT Server (Terminal Server, Citrix Metaframe)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

First off don't know if this it the right forum. Aplogize if this is not.

Question: My company is currently looking at deployment of a Citrix Server to deploy all commonly used apps(Office,Financal,Legacy Database programs, email etc...) My concern is that if 65 users are hitting this server for its apps won't this cause a major network slow down. The server is a Compaq ML380 with 933Mhz,256k ram,RAID 5 and is connects to a 10Mbps 3com Switch. Most workstations run Windows 95 and 98 with a few NT. My first thought is to change the Router and Switch to 100Mbps. I would like any feed back on this. Thank you very much


A:{Advice Offered} - Citrix Metaframe Server

I don't know how well Citrix will put up with 65 hits on the server, but I can tell you for sure that you should go to a switching 100 hub. I don't like running at 10 with 3 computers.

What are you thinking of the router for?

We are a Win2K SP4 shop running Citrix 1.8. We have about 25 Citrix users, though typically no more than 5 are logged in concurrently. I am seeking hardware requirements for the newest version of Citrix, which they call Presentation Server. Considering our specs, I'd like to know what we'd need as far as:

RAM per user
Disk Space
Processor / multi-processor
other associated software (i.e. IIS?)

Any info would be much appeciated.

A:Requirements for Citrix MetaFrame Pres. Server?

There are no hard and fast rules as you will probably know by now.

Again it is a function of money. The more money you spend the more robust it will be.

I am assuming you are talking avout Metaframe 1.8 and not XP as it was called.

Disks SCSI = 3 x 35Gb 15k rpm 1 for O/s one for apps and one for page file.
Processor fast 3.0Ghz or greater
Nic's as fast as you can support.

That should suppport 25 users running office.n However I don't know what other apps you want to run.

Any more info for us ?

Been doing Citrix for 9 years now.

I don't know if this a normal behavior or not but here it goes:

I have a W2K terminal server running Citrix XPs FR3, 60GB HD, 2GB RAM, 3.06Ghz dual processor. Any application being opened by users logged into Citrix uses an abnormal amount of RAM. For example:
- User logs onto a Citrix desktop session and opens up Outlook (or Word, or IE, it doesn't matter).
- Immediately the Outlook process consumes approx. 20-30MB of RAM.
- With each subsequent user that logs on Citrix and opens an application, the same behavior, the process spikes to 20-30MB of RAM.
- IF the user minimizes the window, RAM for that process drops off to about 3-5MB. Opening the window only increases the RAM usage by a few hundred KB.
- I only have approx. 20 users logged on at only one time yet my RAM usage is pegging at 95%!

Is there something in Citrix or windows that I can tweak to help manage the memory better?

Thanks in advance. - Patrick

Normally opening an app will spike the RAM but it should settle down.

I've been having a lot of trouble with this and I hope someone here can shed some light on this for me...It's driving me crazy! Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

We're using Windows 2000 Server in Terminal Server/Application Server mode. the Clients are Win98 boxes. Every so often, (once or so every 2 to 3 months) all of a sudden, All the Printers will disappear and a reboot seems to be the only way to get them back. I've tried restarting the Spooler with no effect. I've gone to Microsoft's site and been unable to find anything on the topic.

Last time this happened my System Log was full (could this cause that?). The last entry was:

I'm looking at setting up windows 2003 terminal servers all over the place to replace the awful thing people are currently doing here - vncing servers with one small shared password among everyone <holding my hands over my ears for the backlash>. Don't blame me, it's another awful legacy I have to get rid of...

1. I've got to set up a Terminal Server Licensing server and was thinking about putting this on my second domain controller. I was wondering what would happen in this server dies, though. Is there some way of having resilience in this scenario? Perhaps a second Licensing server or something, the way you have 2 or more Domain Controllers?

2. Also, I know that Windows XP has an RDP client, I've used before on many occasions, but what about all the Windows 2000 clients that I still have out there. What should I do for them to access the new Terminal Servers?

A:Terminal Server license server(s)? RDP client for Windows2K?

I'm not 100% sure on #1, but I believe that the TS licensing becomes integrated into the AD, so if one DC goes down, the other one will be able to check licensing. On another note, if you are using the TS for administration only, I don't believe you needs the TS Licensing to be installed.

For #2, you can download the latest version of the RDP client from MS's website. It should also be available through Windows Updates, although I think Win2K isn't supported any longer, other than Critical Updates.

I have recently been granted the the honor of installing an additional Win2000 Server on a 50+ user LAN running TCP/IP. This is the second Win2000 server running Terminal Services on the network (the other is too slow as it also has Exchange 5.5 and Active Directory running). It will be used exclusively by 5-8 users over a T-1 connection, acting as an application server (they are using Outlook and Corel Word Perfect Office 2000 to access client files on a Linux file server). This may be a Corel issue, but they are having mucho problemos utilizing their custom keyboard strokes (macros) over terminal services (the macros just stop working or do a totally different thing alltogether). I have told them to not use macros over a Terminal Server as I thought they were iffy over a terminal server client but they are set in their ways. Corel reccommends going to an all Linux LAN but they have problems with 2000 Workstation and Windows 98! I can't find any advice in any Corel or Win2000 pubs. Also, are there any "tweaks" you can reccommend to speed up their terminal services connection? They lock up often and lose information (Word Perfect docs get corrupted alot). Please Help!

A:Windows 2000 Terminal Server


As far as speeding up a terminal service goes, all I have for you is the obvious:

1) Set the desktop to 256 colours maximum (16 would be better, but I think your users might revolt)

2) Disallow wallpapper pictures

3) Disallow any "additions" like Hotbar browser skinner for IE.

4) Make the maximum screen size 800x600
Basically, the way you speed up a Terminal Server session is to drecrease the information being sent to and from the server. Since what is being sent to the server is merely keyboard strokes and mouse clicks, there is not much you can do there. You can, however, speed up the images being sent to the clients by making them less complex. Less colours, less size and less variation will help with that.

The situation is this...

I have a client who wants to install a server PC where they can use remote desktop connection, needs to be Win2003 as they need to have simultanious logins - in itself this is no problem, they are behind a router but setting up NAPT is no problem also.

My problem is that they already have a leased server also running Win2003 that has GPS tracking facility and is only used for this purpose - they can't also use it as a file server, and they are currently running it as a Terminal Server with RDC.

My problem is that I want to have both servers behind the same router/firewall but also be able to use remote desktop through the web and have users able to log into either of the servers?

A:Windows 2003 Terminal Server RDC

I believe you can change the port that Terminal Services runs on. But this would require them to always enter that port in when they use the client.

Hi, my office has a terminal server and every time I launch it with dual monitors the terminal server windows do not lock at the maximum size. I can move the entire terminal server window up and down and side to side just by moving the mouse...it is irritating and not allowing me to use the computer efficiently.

I am hoping someone knows how to resolve this problem. If I use 1 monitor, the screen locks. The other guys in the office with Windows XP do not have this problem either.

Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

I've got an old PC that I'd like to run a media centre on, but it's not very powerful. I know there are things like Microsoft Terminal Server that I know my school uses, but that's way too expensive, so I was wondering if there was a free alternative that would preferably serve out a Windows 7 image so I can run normal programs aswell (so not Linux), which I have a license for. Is there anything like that that I could get. I have a server that is always running so that's not a problem (Runs normal Windows Vista so not like a proper server). Ideally I'd like it to boot directly to the image as I've noticed stuff like VNC and RDP (though much less) seem to lag quite a bit.

Thanks, and I understand that there might not be anything out there like this as it's something probably more suited to a corporate environment.

My users are using thin client devices and connect to a database via a terminal server. Using a group policy, the desktop has been locked down so they cannot access things that they should not be accessing. However, I have noticed that if these users press the windows key + E, then this fires up "My Computer" and drives are available to them. Although, I have locked permission to these drives, I do not want them see My Computer in the first place.

Hello - I've currently got a problem at work that is giving me a few sleepless nights. Basically I support a specialised tax application that has been around for a number of years and is solid and of good quality. However we have one user who has developed a problem recently. This is our only User who is running Windows Server 2003 and Terminal Services. Basically the system had been working fine for a number of years but recently developed a problem. The User has not made any changes to the configuration other than the addition of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1.

I can replicate the problem by denying Write access to the key system folder but I've got the User to check and he can write to files within the folder in question outside of the application. I know that Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 did introduce a number of improvements to Security but have not found anything to explain the problem. The application does make use of the Registry which may be relevant.

Any ideas/pointers would be very gratefully received.

Many thanks

We have to setup terminal services for about 20 people. Only 10 people will be connected at any time.

Does this mean I only need 10 User CAL's or do I need 20 User CAL's 1 for each connection even though only 10 will be in use at any given time.

I don't want to use Per device because these users jump around.

A:Windows 2003 Terminal server CALs

I believe that "per user" is just how many people are connected... Not how many people do connect. That is the way that I always assumed. I know that 2000 didn't care... The licenses were just a piece of paper.

Device-based versus User-based Terminal Server CALs
Two types of Terminal Server Client Access Licenses are available: TS Device CAL or TS User CAL.

&#8226; A TS Device CAL permits one device (used by any user) to conduct Windows Sessions on any of your servers.

&#8226; A TS User CAL permits one user (using any device) to conduct Windows Sessions on any of your servers.
You may choose to use a combination of TS Device CALs and TS User CALs simultaneously with the server software.

Hello my name is Adam. I am a desktop/lan admin for a warehouse supply company in New York. We run a strictly Windows 2000 domain with about 70 computers and maybe 3 or 4 Windows XP machines. I recently enabled a Terminal Services Server to allow 3 or 4 of my users to run database intensive Apps on the server. The reason for this is when they use specific functions in our "in house application" the app freezes up until it has finished its process (allocation of goods for large orders, takes about an hour tops). The app freezes up to do its job and the user is left with nothing to do because they cant touch the app until its done. So by enabling terminal services for them, they can run there allocations on the Terminal server, minimize it and keep doing there work on there computers.

Hello all, I'm a long time lurker but first time poster. I used to consider myself fairly competent in exorcising malware demons from people's PCs (I certainly have enough people bringing them to me for that purpose) but my old tricks don't seem to be keeping pace with the new threats. Recently we had a Zbot outbreak on our network that pointed out glaring security holes in our defenses that existed due to lack of administrative manpower and an ill-advised managerial directive to favor data accessibility and application communication over proper security practices. After three of us losing an entire weekend to isolation, cleanup, and reimaging of servers where necessary we are changing our ways and have all servers running the latest McAfee Virusscan Enterprise with maximum protection, have closed down shares of system volumes, and have a renewed focus on proper security practices.That being said, we are still not completely rid of the Zbot infection. The terminal server upon which we conduct our day to day activities (not online banking for now for obvious reasons) is still attempting to infect the executables of other servers on the network (one in particular seems to be its primary target). The McAfee on-access scanner on that server seems to be detecting and cleaning the infections, but some evil is definitely still at work - in TCPview I can see connections being established with unknown IPs (one of them in Russia) which are definitely not legitimate tra...

I am moving a NT 4.0 Terminal server to a Windows 2000 domain from the current NT 4.0 domain. What is the best way to do this for a server? Is it the same procedure as for a workstation? This server is also a Citrix server.

My business came across this problem with Windows NT Terminal Server Edition where the CPU on the server spiked to 100% for a few minutes and everything stopped.
The people connected to Terminal Server are using IBM Thin Client computers which do not have their own CPU.

The cause of the problem, which Microsoft will not acknowledge, is related to Thin Clients, Terminal Server and Office 97 or Office 2000.

If a person tries to copy and then paste a document which is approximately four pages or bigger in Office 97 or Office 2000, all resources are used and because Thin Clients don't have their own CPU's, the server CPU is overloaded. This causes the CPU to spike to 100%, for however long it takes to copy and paste the document. This also brings everyone on the Terminal Server to a stop and nothing can be done until it has finished pasting.

Hope this helps anyone in the same situation.

Trying to put Office 2010 on a machine running Windows Server 2003 R2 (SP2) with Terminal Services.

The machine will be set up so that anyone requiring the usage of Office 2010 can use RDP to log onto the server and use the programs there.

1) Do I need a specific version of Office 2010 to make this work?
2) Is this a violation of the license agreement for Office 2010? (Obviously I care about this less than the first part, but I'd like to know.)

The only reason I ask is because apparently my friend tried to install a version of Office 2010 we had lying around and it apparently gave him some weird error about Terminal Services... haven't seen the error myself but I thought I'd ask before I try this again.

We have a Windows 2000 Terminal Server, which keeps having problems with the spooler service. When I log on, the server is very slow, and the spoolersv.exe is at the top of the CPU usage list. Then, the spooler service stops and I loose all my printers. I have set the spooler service to automatically recover, and restart if stopped, but this keeps happening, and the performance and reliablilty is very poor. There are 53 printers in the printer list, and there are no end of warnings in the event log telling me that printers are being added and pending deletion. But as I understand, this is normal within terminal services. Has anyone come across this problem before?

Thanks a lot for any help,

Daniel Murfitt

I have had this problem when a printer installation is corrupt, if you can't pinpoint the guilty printer I would delete them all and then re-install them.

We have an ASP database, connecting via Citrix. The Citrix server settings were provided to us by the ASP vendor. When there are problems, the vendor's reply is sometimes, "that's a citrix issue, it's not us". My question is, wouldn't the Citrix server be in their location? It's not my understanding that Citrix provides servers out on the cloud, out of reach of the vendor. Do I misunderstand this?



A:ASP via Citrix -- whose server?

Is there a better forum for Citrix issues? I didn't really find any discussion of them anywhere on the site, so I took a stab in this forum.

      In servers, many users will login and use company, the password of every user will not change frequently.

So I want to know who is loging but without permission.

     For methods, I want to through program such as bat, vbs, powershell or other effective language to make it achive.

Question 1

If I have a main office with 3 branch offices and the branch offices need to connect to a SCO Unix server to access the database, which would make more sense? VPN for each branch or Terminal Server with Citrix installed. All clients are running some version of Windows OS from 95 up to 2000 Pro.

Question 2

Now I want to add anywhere from 10 to 20 field agents and give them access to the same server. These agents will be running Windows OS's as well but most likely will be running DUN for Internet access. VPN or Term Server with Citrix?

Reliable connectivity is a paramount requirement since if the connection is lost, data could be potentially corrupted.

Thanks for any ideas, comments, or suggestions.

I have a very frustrating problem. I want to use Windows 2008 R2 Terminalserver with Outlook 2016. 
Unfortunately every time a user starts Outlook, he installs the 64 bit Components. It seems there is one solution: Installing Windows Search Role and starting Outlook in Installation Mode. 
Seems to work. With that solution, there is another problem: It is not possible to search in pst-files. Windows error log says event ID 3036. Looks like, Windows Search cannot index pst-files (in network). The possible solution to disable indexing for Outlook
does not work because the configuration change got reseted after relogin. This might happen because of our Roaming users. 
As you can see, I have one problem. When Windows Search is installed, pst-files are not searchable. When Windows Search is not installed, Outlook 64 bit Components get installed every start of Outlook. 

Is there anybody who has other ideas for a solution? 

Thank you for your help.

What is the Windows XP Terminal Server SP2..What does it differ from normal windows XP SP2? I have a software developed, which works on windows XP SP2, but not on windows XP Terminal server SP2..

Please suggest on this..

A:Difference b/w Windows XP Terminal Server SP2 and normal windows XP SP2

The main difference is that a Terminal Server (TS) interconnects devices using RS-232 serial communications where normal WinXP computers interconnect using Ethernet or WiFi.

You can think of a TS as a router, that can interconnect several terminals using serial communications, a modem, and, using NICs, to a standard network.

Well my boss has decided to go crazy and has tasked me with trying to buy server hardware for a new Citrix farm he wants to implement.

The problem is the talks I have had with Citrix people I can't get ANY kind of help as far as number of users per server CPU, RAM requirements and things of that nature, this is making it difficult to tell my boss the hardware we should get.

I already know we want Raid 5 and a fair amount of storage (as citrix has to have the applications images loaded onto the server correct?), will multi processor help the number of users that can connect?

With this in mind and knowing we only use standard applications I.E. windows XP pro, Office 2003, and fery few other applications does anyone have a clue what type of servers I should be looking at? I.E. RAM requirements and CPU speed.

Is CPU speed directly proportional to the number of users who can connect to any given server? I know we are going to have some kind of load balencing solution for failover but I wanted to get some ideas on what to prep for.

I am looking for any guidelines or recommendation on running EMET on a RDS environment. So far in our testing we have had to put in a number of fixes and workarounds to get EMET stable. Just curious if there are any other guidelines or a general stance on
EMET support in RDS and Citrix Xenapp.

I have had this problem for awhile and cannot seem to stop it or figure out where it is coming from. It seems that Citrix Presentation Server Client is continually installed on my PC. I can do a complete uninstall and 24 hours later it is reinstalled. I pretty much have a generic install of XP Pro SP2 with only Office 2003. Any clue where this could be coming from?
