Cannot start Visual LANSA on Server PC due to disabled Terminal Services service

Date: 19 May 2005
Product/Release: Visual LANSA V11.0
Abstract: Error generated when starting Visual LANSA on Server PC due to Terminal Services service being disabled
Submitted By: LANSA Technical Support


Starting Visual LANSA on a server PC (in a Slave Server/Network Client) development environment can fail with the following error:

LIIO525S Error encountered while calling function "Obtain current session user name". Return code = 1702

This message is generated when the Terminal Services service is disabled on the server PC. Not having the Terminal Services service enabled on a server PC is more common in Windows 2003 or with the latest Windows service packs, which disable the service for security reasons.


Enabling the service will allow you to successfully log into Visual LANSA on the server PC. Visual LANSA V11.0 will be changed so that this service does not have to be enabled in order to log into Visual LANSA.
