Today’s tip…

 

You may notice that the Interactive Services Detection service will no longer start.  Why?

 

Windows Server 2012 no longer allows interactive services, by default, which makes the Interactive Services Detection service unnecessary.

 

If you must run a legacy application that installs an interactive service on Windows Server 2012, you may sacrifice server stability for compatibility by changing the following registry value from the default of "1" to "0".

 

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows

NoInteractiveServices

 

After doing so and rebooting, the Interactive Services Detection Service will start.
