Detect if running in terminal server session

Is it possible to detect whether my application is running within a Terminal
Server session or not?

I'd like to automatically switch off some of my graphics rendering under
this environment as they can be quite slow to transfer over a terminal
server session. The graphics should still be displayed when running directly
on a local session.

Thanks,

I am ready to move my ASP web site onto a remote host. The problem is that when I use Terminal Services to see the host machine, the error does not show up. (I was told that debugging info is only sent to the 'console' session, no others). And the whole thing locks up when there is a server error. How can I see the server errors through Terminal Services? Thanks, Sara

This problem predominantly occurs on multi-processor computers but has also been known to occur on single-processor...

Hi peoples, I dont know where to place this question, so as I know you guys are all resourceful experts, I thought I would try here. I am writing some code which will be run usingh remote desktop ( On windows 2003 Server ), I need to determine in the code the machine name and username. If I use GetUsername and GetMachineName, it simply gives me the name of the currently logged on user ( at the Server ) and the Servers Machine Name.

Is there any way in a .NET App to detect if it is being run under Terminal Server? I have some functions of my program (like launching emails, and saving files) that need to be handled differently if the user is running it locally, or if they're running under Terminal Server.

Hi, I need code in VB.Net to detect if the application is running on Terminal Server. I am using the following code. Please let me know if you see any issues in it or if you have some better code to achieve this functionality: Dim sTemp As String = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("SESSIONNAME") Dim IsTSSession As String If (sTemp <> "") And (sTemp.IndexOf("RDP-") = 0) Then IsTSSession = True

Hi All, Coding in C#.Net 2.0 A requirement of my app is that certain functions should not be allowed to execute if excel is running. The app is used in terminal server sessions so checking if "excel.exe" is run by current username is not good enough. I need to determine if the session running my app, is also running excel.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
