Compatibility with Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019

From TCAdmin 2.0 Documentation

Microsoft has removed the Interactive Services Detection Service on Windows 10 v.1803 or later and Windows Server 2019. This means it is not possible to view the game server's console from remote desktop while it is running as a service. This creates compatibility issues with some games. If a game server does not start with TCAdmin but it starts manually as TCAGame follow these instructions:

  • Make sure you are running TCAdmin 2.0.127.1 or greater.
  • Go to Start > Administrative Tools > Services and stop the TCAdmin Service Manager service.
  • Open a command prompt and execute this command:
taskkill /F /IM TCAdminServiceLauncher.exe
  • Configure the service manager to run as an administrator account and add the required permission. (you may create a new administrator account used exclusively for this)
    • Go to start > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment.
    • Double click on "Replace a process level token" and add the Administrator account (or your custom user).
    • Go to Start > Administrative Tools > Services. Double click on the TCAdmin Service Manager service.
    • In the log on tab select "Log on as this account" and enter your administrator user (or your custom user) and password.
  • Start the TCAdmin Service Manager service again.
  • Check the game servers to see if they start correctly.


If you are running other versions of Windows and a game server doesn't start with TCAdmin this fix might work but you will lose the ability to view the game server's console with "Interactive Service Detection".
