Error: "MFC Application has stopped working


  • Windows Server 2008 R1 with Terminal Services/Citrix - Microsoft's redirector closes the files for all users when the first user logs out of his Terminal Server /Citrix session. This will affect any application run from a mapped drive. An incident has been opened with Microsoft and they have opened a bug. 
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 with Remote Desktop Services/Citrix - Each time a new user opens an application with exe files already opened by a previous user, then file ownership is transferred to that user. When the last user in the program logs out of Terminal Server/Citrix the application will close for previous users.
