DCOM permissions resetting with a Remote Desktop restart

DCOM permissions resetting with a Remote Desktop restart


After the successful install of Continuum 1.9x users are receiving a DCOM Permission error when logging on to webClient.

The error seems to happen often however it is intermittent some times in a day others a week.

It appears that when ever a remote desktop connection is made on Windows 7 or Windows 2008 server the console gets locked.

It stays locked until the local session is restored with a logon.


  1. Create a Bat file.
    @echo off
    REM Restores session 0 to the "console".  Thus allows local machine
    REM to return to the service accounts desktop without being locked.
    REM ------------------------------------------------------
    tscon.exe 0 /dest:console
    @%windir%\System32\tscon.exe 0 /dest:console
    @%windir%\System32\tscon.exe 1 /dest:console
    @%windir%\System32\tscon.exe 2 /dest:console
  2. Place this file on the desktop of the Web Server system.
  3. When you disconnect from the remote session run this Bat file. Do not just disconnect. This must be run "As an Administrator." This will disconnect the session and restore the console.
