NTVDM encountered a hard error

We have recently upgraded our Terminal Server to 2003 SP1. Users are now
getting a "NTVDM encountered a hard error" when they try to run a 16 bit app.
Any ideas?

Re: NTVDM encountered a hard error

Hi Chad,

Have the file permissions on the 16 bit app's location changed?

Re: NTVDM encountered a hard error

Don't think so. The app directory is actually on a different server. It's
just a shortcut on the Terminal Server. I think the upgrade to SP1 is what
changed something. I'm a domain admin and I get the same error.

Re: NTVDM encountered a hard error

Check your Group Policy and make sure that Computer
Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components "Prevent access to
16-bit applications" is set to Disabled. Also check the registry and make
sure that the DWORD
value HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\WOW\DisallowedPolicyDefault is
set to 0.

Re: NTVDM encountered a hard error

"Prevent access to 16-bit applications" is set to "not configured" under
Computer Configuration and User Configuration. DisallowedPolicyDefault is
set to 0.

The application in question is being run from Windows 2000 Server. However,
I did not find such a policy on that OS and users can access the application
fine over the LAN, just not the Terminal Server running on Server 2003 SP1.

Re: NTVDM encountered a hard error

I was able to open sysedit.exe ok, which the KB article says means nothing is
wrong with NTVDB or WOW. But it also says this article only applies to
Windows NT Server.

Re: NTVDM encountered a hard error

I had the same NTVDM Hard Error reported to me for a 16 bit application under
terminal services.

The answer was found by using the Filemon utility.

Access denied message in the Filemon log.

Corrected permissions and all okay.

Obviously this will not apply to everyones problem but may help someone.
