SBS Client Application Launcher has encountered a problem and needs to close RRS feed

  • Question

  • I logged in to a remote session on the SBS to add a user to a security group. Now, when I log on to my computer with the domain administrator account, I get the error "SBS Client Application Launcher has encountered a problem and needs to
    close." There is an event in the Application log associated with the error:

    After clicking to send/not send an error report, I get back to the desktop where all appears normal. However, I can no longer access the internet while logged in under this account.

    I can log in on another PC with the domain admin account with no error.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Doesn't seem like is should have anything to do with it, but what user did you add to what group.

    Have you logged out and back in with this error persistent?

    I added a user with the credentials of the standard SBS user template to the Workstation Admins group, so granting additional permissions. This user account had never been logged on at my workstation. Is the issue that I was logged on as this user and from there, logged on to the remote session on the server? I would expect that user account to be affected, not the domain admin account.

    I've logged in and out numerous times, shut down, restarted, everything I can think of. The error still occurs.

  • Hi,

     

    I would like to suggest you run System File Checker with command: sfc /scannow to scan and repair the system files.

     

    If it does not work, please also test the issue in Clean Boot.

     

    Clean Boot

    ================

    Let’s disable all startup items and third party services when booting. This method will help us determine if this issue is caused by a loading program or service. Please perform the following steps:

    1. Click the Start Button type "msconfig" (without quotation marks) in the Start Search box, and then press Enter.

    Note: If prompted, please click Continue on the User Account Control (UAC) window.

     

    2. Click the "Services" tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray).

    3. Click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and click "OK".

     

    Then, restart the computer. When the "System Configuration Utility" window appears, please check the "Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows starts" box and click OK.

     

    What’s the result in Clean Boot?

  • Thank you for the suggestions. I feel I should update the thread because the problem conditions have changed. This error is now occurring on multiple workstations and multiple user accounts. I can't find a common thread among the user accounts that are affected. Most users are still able to use all network resources, receive updates from the server, etc. I'd appreciate any help, as this now seems to be something wrong at the server. To repeat, we are running SBS 2003 Premium Edition, with a combination of Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 clients.

  • Did anyone ever come up with a solution to this?

    I have exactly the same problem.

    Thanks
