    MP2004 and terminal services

    Hi all. Newbie to this so please be gentle

    I've written an application in VB6 which uses the Mappoint ActiveX control to display vehicle locations. The application works fine on a PC, the problem I'm having is with terminal services.

    Mappoint itself works fine on a TS client, but when I try to bring up the screen with the map in my application I get an error of

    Run-time error '-2147024893 (800700003)':
    Mappoint failed to load. The cause of this failure is unknown.

    An event is also created in the system event log:

    Unable to start a DCOM server :{15A0124-24D2-4FDB-8155-5F65FCE-7017F}. The error "The system cannot find the file specified " happened while starting this command: C:\Program Files\Microsoft mappoint Europe\Mappoint.exe -embedding

    I can run the application fine from the console, this problem happens when I try to run it over terminal services, even when I use the administrator account. I'm pretty sure it's not a permissions problem, I've checked all that.

    What am I missing??

    Remote desktop screen resolution?

    I had problems with remote desktop. Problems were related to the screen resolution. Changing screen resolution problems were solved.
    Yes the mine was a different thing, I created an application that creates a map of 686x566pixel and with a screen resolution (setted as parameter of Remote Desktop) of 800x600 this doesn't work. I setted it 1024x768 and it worked fine.

    Hi,

    Not mappoint related but terminal server / remote desktop are things full of strange bugs. I dont support them in commercial applications anymore because they all have unpredictible bugs. I suggest to move your customars to the "normal" remote programs if this is really nececary.

    Re: MP2004 and terminal services

    I've been using MP under Ts with no issues at all, I made sure I installed Mp on the Server locatly and then ran it from there first.. after that all users had no problems at all.
