Group Policy Services

    Question

  • I'm running group policy from windows server 2012. Windows server 2012 does not have the service TABLETPCINPUT. as a result, all PCs (all running win7) in the domain are not able to have the tabletpcinput service run. I've changed it to auto and it repeatedly changes itself back to disabled when gpupdate /force, or logon occurs.

    How can I work around this?

  • The issue was that the dc server does not have tabletinputservice, and as such this service cannot be configured for group policies. The result is the service defaults to disabled. The solution was to upgrade the client PC to windows10, which does not require the tabletinputservice to run touch screens.

  • Hi Ryan,
    Maybe, you could add this service as the third party service into GPO and then see if it works.
    Here are some articles about it, you could refer to:

    Please Note: Since the web site is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.
    In addition, you could have a try to start the service via registry, please navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\TabletInputService
    and locate Start registry key, double click on Start and edit the value:
    Automatic - 2
    Manual - 3
    Disabled - 4
