Troubleshooting


Problem

Resolving The Problem

Configuring an Access for Windows PC5250 session results in the error E8940.

Verify the QAUTOVRT system value which is set too low. This system value controls the total number of virtual display devices that can be created on the system. Increase the value to something more than the current total number of virtual devices so the new virtual display device for this session is able to be created.
