    I have upgraded 8 of our servers from Windows 2000 to
    2003. My issue is with one server that will not install
    terminal services correctly. It worked fine before the
    upgrade, following the upgrade the service does not
    start. The error is "error 2:The system cannot find the
    specified file." I have uninstalled, rebooted, then
    reinstalled and get the same error.

  2. Hi Mike,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    Please export the following TermService service key from other Windows 2003
    that Terminal service works properly and import it on this server.


    Restart computer.

    If the problem still persists, I suspect that the problem was caused by
    files corruption during upgrade, possibly due to some third party software,
    for example antivirus.

    You can refer to the following article to perform an In-place upgrade.

    Have a nice day!
