The vista job start code on the helper service differs from the standard implementation. 
The problem is that the function GetInteractiveUserToken() can not get the a session token when no user is logged in.

How to Fix:
a) Find out how to startup GUI jobs when no user is logged into the vista host
b) Add a load report consumable which reports if it is possible to startup a windows GUI job on this host and
   request e.g. WGUISupport=true when a job is submitted.

A user must be logged into the windows vista system.
The GUI job also starts up correctly when the screen is logged.
