Server 2003, Terminal Server & wing.dll weird issue

    I have a Server 2003 Enterprise running Terminal Server. On this TS box I
    have installed a program called Microtype Multimedia. It is a typing tutor
    for middle school children.

    When I install the program and run it, things work fine. However, when I
    log out and then log back in, I get a wing.dll out of memory error. The
    exact error is "Out of memory or wing.dll corrupt."

    I have called the vendor and they don't support the software in TS and have
    left me to myself pretty much. Here's what I have discovered on my own:

    Included with the program is an old windows program called Microsoft Video
    for Windows 1.1. IF I install this program after logging back in, the
    program will run fine and I get no errors. If I do not install this
    Microsoft Video for Windows 1.1, I get the wing.dll error. Also, even if I
    start the install for the Microsoft Video for Windows 1.1 and cancel it, the
    program will run. It seems this Microsoft Video for Windows 1.1 is loading
    something that is unloaded at exit, although I cannot determine what it
    might be.

    I will point out at this point that this program ran fine under Server 2000
    TS. Also, one cheesy fix I came up with was to dump the setup.exe for the
    Microsoft Video for Windows 1.1 into my startup folder so that when I log
    in, it gets installed. This works fine for me as I only have to click the
    mouse twice to finish the install and I'm good to go. However, my students,
    the ones who need this program, do not have install rights on the TS so this
    fix will not work for them.

    I would appreciate any feedback on this issue.

    Hi Cliff,

    I know it has been a year since you posted this but we just tried to
    install Microtype on a terminal server this year and I have the same
    issue you had. I was just wondering if you were able to resolve the
