      Hello,

      I’ve recently download TSGrinder and I’ve been having issues running the application. When I run the application from the command prompt I get the following error:

      tsgrinder timed_Event_send_recv: Wait failed: TIMEOUT

      I’ve googled this error and it says to download and run the application from ROBOCLIENT. I downloaded this client but nothing is happening? What are the next steps to using roboclient and tsgrinder together?

      BTW – I’m running XP SP3.

      There was an update to mstsc mid-last year that broke the call backs.  I’ve been trying to send this to pen-test, but it hasn’t been posted yet.  I did send it to Thor, and he said he was going to take a look at it.  I will post in a sec…

      Maybe soon this will finally show up on pen-test… 🙂

      A while back I encountered an issue when using TSGrinder:

      C:usrsbintsgrinder
      >tsgrinder -u administrator -b -n 2 192.168.1.5
      timed_Event_send_recv: Wait failed: TIMEOUT
      Couldn’t get handle to client window

      I was busy and didn’t have time to mess with it and it still worked on
      one of my other computers.

      Over the holidays things were slow, so I decided it was time to look
      into why I got the error.  Turns out my first machine was fully patched
      and the older moth-balled box wasn’t.  The problem is due to the upgrade
      of mstsc during a windows update.

      The workaround in a nutshell:

      Download & Unzip TSGrinder
      Obtain and place a copy of mstsc.exe and mstscax.dll version
      5.1.2600.2800 (you may be able to find it in an $NTUninstall under
      %windir%) in the same directory as TSGrinder.

      Place the following text in a new file called tsgrinder.exe.manifest

      <assemblyIdentity
      version=”6.0.0.0″
      processorArchitecture=”x86″
      name=”redirector”
      type=”win32″
      />
      DLL Redirection

        <assemblyIdentity
          type=”win32″
          name=”Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls”
          version=”6.0.0.0″
          processorArchitecture=”X86″
          publicKeyToken=”6595b64144ccf1df”
          language=”*”
        />

      <file
          name=”mstscax.dll”
      />

      And place it in the same directory.

      This worked for me – anyone else?

      thanks for the post, somewhere i posted that i was just using an older version of the remote desktop software, or maybe it was the “new” version at the time, tsgrinder is a pretty old tool.

      Does anyone know where to download a copy of these 2 files?  I also had RDesktop begin to fail with a cannot get handle on window error. Has anyone seen a fix for it?

      Got it working.  Stuffed a working copy for everyone here:
      http://conservativebooktalk.com/files/tsgrinder.zip

      works on XP sp3; if its a single logon box and someone is logged in, it won’t work.  also, seems to fail after the first five password attempts when running from Win 7.

      Enjoy.

      I didn’t have much luck with tsgrinder either.

      I use a patched version of rdesktop I have on my backtrack vm.
