Unable to start Interactive Services Detection service in Windows 2012

    Question

  • We couldn't able to start the Interactive services detection service in Windows 2012 server. Can any one please provide the method by which we can run the Interactive services detection service in the server. We have tried it from 'services.msc'.

  • Windows Server 2012 no longer allows interactive services, by default, which makes the Interactive Services Detection service unnecessary.

    If you must run a legacy application that installs an interactive service on Windows Server 2012, you may sacrifice server stability for compatibility by changing the following registry value from the default of "1" to "0".

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows
    NoInteractiveServices

    After doing so and rebooting, the Interactive Services Detection Service will start.

  • Print Servers using drivers from Lexmark and HP will be impacted by the default change.  Reverting the setting to the 2008 R2 default allows the print drivers to throw and dismiss their UI components in session 0.

  • I'm trying to enable it in Windows 10.  That registry key works, but how do you enable the mouse and keyboard?  It's how I see software installs running from Altiris Deployment Solution.
