Terminal Server Agent on Windows Server 2008 R2 (service wont start)

Hi guys,

 

I have installed TSA 7.0.6-4. as administrator on windows server 2008 R2 with remote desktop services installed.

 

The TSA will not start (see screenshot)

These are the logs from the TSA file menu.

I orginally installed the latest TSA but to troubleshoot I downgraded.

 

Any assistance would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

Matt

Current versions of the agent are signed with a sha256 certificate. Windows 2008 R2 needs a patch installed in order to support sha256 code signatures.

error 577 would indicate that the signature on the driver itself is not correct, I have no idea what error 3 is. I would try to uninstall the agent as a whole and make sure everything actually removes; then try reinstalling and see if that fixes things. Make sure to redownload the agent incase your download is corrupt.

Microsoft is announcing the reissuance of an update for all supported editions of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 to add support for SHA-2 signing and verification functionality. This update supersedes the 2949927 update that was rescinded on October 17, 2014 to address issues that some customers experienced after installation. As with the original release, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows RT, and Windows RT 8.1 do not require this update because SHA-2 signing and verification functionality is already included in these operating systems. This update is not available for Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2008.
