The Remote Session was disconnected because there is no Terminal Server License.

Hi All,

You might have came across below given error , when you are connecting to Citrix Presentation Server while launching application.

The issue is with the existing Termincal Server license stored in the user’s machine Registry file.

Just go to the below location and Remove the Registry file and reboot the machine , launch the Citrix Presentation server url and launch the application. Will work. This will regenerate the Terminal Server license keys in the Registry and allow connections.


Now you try to connect/ Launch the Application in Citrix Presentation server , it will connect.

Installing HP Device Manager for Controlling HP ThinClient

Installation and Requirement
HP Device Manager Installation

HP Device Manager

HP Device Manager is a server-based application that provides sophisticated centralized administration capabilities for Thin Client devices running HP software. Features of HP Device Manager include:
 Centralized management of software configuration and upgrades.
 A central server-based database.
 The ability to easily create, store and update tasks.
 The ability to access any file or the system registry in thin client devices.
 XML-based task file.
 Design tool for administrator to create tasks.
 User-friendly graphical user interface.
 Easy and powerfull repository management.
 Support for WAN environment.
 Windows CE device management.
 Linux device management.
 Easy to change Enhanced Write Filter setting for XPe Agent.
 The ability to adjust the response time.
 Communicate with Data Encryption and Data Compression between HP Management Server and HP Management Gateway.
 Easy to set the work mode of Agent.

HP Device Manager is structured as a Console-Server-Gateway system.

HP Management
The HP Management Console is the user interface of HP Device Manager. Several HP Management Consoles can interact with an HP Management Server. The console allows system administrators to view details for each controlled device, organize device trees, create and maintain remote job definitions, and monitor tasks sent out to devices.

HP Management Server
The HP Management Server controls agents through the HP Management Gateway. Tasks stored asTask Templates on the server, can be sent to each agent through each agent’s respective gateway to perform commands as required.
HP Management Gateway
The HP Management Gateway servers as the link between devices and the HP Management Server. Device register with the gateway when they are started. The machine installed with the HP Management Gateway also normally contains the PXE Server installed by HP Device Manager.
Device Agent
The HP Management Agent is a software component installed on thin client devices so that HP Device Manager can interact with them. Agents are embedded into each HP operating system to enable Device Manager to manage devices out-of-the-box. Agents get tasks commands, execute the commands and report on their status.

Installing HP Device Manager
HP Device Manager consists of four modules:
 Management Console
The graphical application used by administrators to access the management system.
 Management Server
The central server which consolidates and controls all management activities.
 Management Gateway
The gateway which serves as the link between Agents and the Management Server.
 Management Agent

Software installed on the client to enable device management
