  • Hi All,

       After rebooting a server, "the application failed to initialize because the window station is shutting down (dll initialization failed)" popup is coming and again the server is rebooting. The server is in a Virtual Machine (VMware).

      Kindly help to fix this issue.

  • Hi,

     

    Please try to reboot the VM into Safe Mode to see whether you get the same issue.

     

    By the way, please type perform the following steps:

     

    1. Type “msconfig” in Run, you will get System Configuration window.

    2. Navigate to Startup tab.

    3. Uncheck all the options in Startup and then reboot the computer to see whether you get the same issue.

  • Hi Vincent,

        Thank you for your reply.

    What will happen to those programs which were selected in startup if we Uncheck all the option. Will they load later.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

     

    If you uncheck the options, those programs will not start automatically. You need to start them manually. In this way, we can narrow down the cause of the issue. It seems that there are some program cause this issue.
