Terminal Services won't start

Discussion in 'Windows XP General' started by David Provost, Feb 22, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    Sorry if this is a repost, but I was having problems with the web-based
    reader yesterday (I'm on Outlook now). Anyway, I've been unable to use Fast
    User Switching, and I've tracked it down (I think) to a problem with
    Terminal Services. When I try to start it manually, I get:

    Error 1083: The executable program that this service is configured to run in
    does not implement the service.

    Any advice?

    Hi David,

    Check the command line for the service: Switch it to the latter.

    "svchost -k netsvcs"
    "svchost -k termsvcs"

  3. Kelly,

    Thanks for the help, but I'm not sure how to do that. When I access the
    properties, I can see the "Path to Executable:" and it does in fact end in
    "-k netsvcs", but I can't edit that line.
