Description



This guide provides a collection of best practices when you virtualize Microsoft Office 2010. Office is one of the most virtualized applications with Symantec Workspace Virtualization. However, certain issues arise due to the diverse ways that customers virtualize Office along with the Microsoft licensing features unique to Office 2010. These instructions help you navigate these realities through three standard use cases.
 

This guide is meant to document specific steps for Office 2010. However, additional information is included such as how to use virtualization to run two versions of Office concurrently.
 

Furthermore, this guide is not intended to present all aspects of packaging and deploying in Wise Virtual Composer (WVC). Instead, the guide provides information on the unique aspects and necessary steps for packaging Office 2010.
