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:
>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
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:
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.

I didn’t have much luck with tsgrinder either.
I use a patched version of rdesktop I have on my backtrack vm.
