  • Virtuozzo for Windows 3.5.1 SP1


When some third party MMC applications  are ran inside VEs , the following error is displayed:

Failed to create empty document

MMC cannot open the file C:\Documents and Settings\All

This may be because the file does not exist, it is not an MMC console, or was created by a later version of MMC. This may also be because you do not have sufficient access rights to the file.


Most likely the reason of the problem is memory shortage for GDI objects.


According to Microsoft recommendations to decrease memory consumption it would be necessary to switch Terminal Server to Administration mode. Considering  Virtuozzo architecture , Terminal Services have to be switched on the Host itself.
