Access Database on terminal server refusing to connect

By brian ·
Hi all,

I recently installed ms office 2003 on my windows 2000 server. However, i created a user account and pointed it to run an access database in program files.

Now here is the problem. every time i try to remotely connect to the access database using terminal services, i get the following error msg: AN ERROR (193) OCCURRED WHILE CREATING USER LOGON. THIS INITIAL PROGRAM CANNOT BE STARTE C:\PROGRAM FILES\DATABASE\WARR.MDE PLEASE CHECK THE INITIAL PROGRAM IN THE CLIENT CONFIGURATION.

Terminal Server Client Error 193

A non-administrator user tries to log on through the Terminal Server Client, and receives the following error:

An error (193) occurred while creating user logon.
Failing component: explorer.exe.
When the user clicks OK, the client terminates.


The user does not have access to Explorer.exe. The cause is most probably that the administrator has turned on the administrative utility, Application Security, but has not added Explorer.exe to the list of allowed applications.


At the Terminal Server, the administrator can add Explorer.exe to the list of authorized applications. To do this, run the Application Security application and choose ADD. Browse for the application or enter the path (which is drive:\systemroot\explorer.exe).

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
