    Hello folks,

    i cannot start Terminal Servcises service. Anytime i try to start it i get
    this error message: "Could not start the Terminal Services service on Local
    Computer, Error 126: The specified module could not be found." I tried to
    copy termsrv.dll to c:\windows\system32 and c:\windows\system32\dllcache from
    my windows xp SP2 cd, but still getting the same error message. Any idea what
    i could try next?

    Thanks

  2. Hi dynamox,

    You must expand the termsrv.dl_ file from the XP CD. Simply copying it does
    not help.

  4. Dynamox,

    If you're running Windows XP SP2, then download the following file:

    http://windowsxp.mvps.org/temp/termservice.reg

    Save the file to Desktop. Right-click the file and choose Merge. Click Yes
    to confirm. Note that this REG file removes and re-creates "Terminal
    Services" service entry in the registry.

    If that does not help, check if the Event Log provides any information on
    the Service startup failure.
