FIX: Non-Admin Windows 2000 Users Cannot Create Global Objects by Using Terminal Services

View products that this article applies to.


When you try to create global objects by using Windows 2000 Terminal Services server with Windows user credentials that are different from administrator credentials or LocalSystem credentials, the operation may fail. For example, when you try to insert a ClipArt picture in a Microsoft Word document, the operation may fail, and you receive the following error message:
Not enough memory. Try closing other applications or restarting the computer.
Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.
Error Code 0x8007000E

However, you can use existing global objects by using Terminal Services.

More information

A security fix is introduced in Windows 2000 SP4 so that only administrators and LocalSystem users can create global objects by using Terminal Services. Because of the security fix, the Interface Remoting component of OLEDB is affected. Interface remoting uses global objects for cross-session communication between clients and servers. Office ClipArt uses the Interface Remoting component. Therefore, ClipArt is also affected by the security fix.

The security fix to Terminal Services may cause other unexpected behavior, or may generate unexpected error messages from applications that use the Interface Remoting component in Terminal Services sessions.
