Amazon WorkSpaces Windows Client Registration service

I normally use for work at least 2 physical devices so I’m not affected too much about any hardware or software malfunction.

I work with a lot of customers and I’m using my personal devices for work, so I always get into trouble. Luckily, I know somebody doing IT which helps me from time to time 🙂


It was the case also for the Amazon WorkSpaces Client which for some days, didn’t wanted to register with the AWS WorkSpace that I had configured, showing an error for Registration service in the service checks window. It always told me to check my internet connection although that my Internet connection was running fine.

I also checked and re-checked firewall rules but still no luck, until this small issue was a challenge already 🙂



I got this issue fixed by going to my user profile and deleting the Amazon WorkSpaces config folder.

To do this, go to:

1. Close the Amazon WorkSpaces client

2. Open Explorer and go to:

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Amazon Web Services\

3. Make a copy of the Amazon WorkSpaces folder and delete it afterwards

4. Open the Amazon WorkSpaces client and configure the client with your WorkSpace info

5. Enjoy the easy fix!
