Please upgrade promptly to our latest platform  vSpace Pro

If you are using version 4 because of terminals that are not compatible with vSpace Pro 11 or Enterprise edition, likely, these are also outdated and need to be upgraded.

This error is seen when attempting to login using a limited user account due to changes made in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3.

To correct this issue, it is necessary to add limited user accounts to the Remote Desktop Users Group. 

1. Click Start and then click Run. 
2. Type in "gpedit.msc"
3. Click OK 
4. When the Group Policy Object Editor appears, navigate to: Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment 
5. In the right-hand panel, locate the entry named "Allow Log on through Terminal Services" and double-click on it.
6. On the new dialog box, click "Add User or Group".
7. Type "everyone" into the available text box and click "Check Names".
8. After the name becomes underlined, click OK
9. Click OK on the "Allow Log on through Terminal Services" window. 

After this procedure, you should now be able to log in successfully on the NComputing terminals with any local or domain user account.

NOTE: Due to limited features within the Windows XP Home operating system, this fix applies only to Windows XP Pro.
