Editing the registry settings of a virtual software layer

After you create a virtual software layer, you can edit its registry settings. If you create an empty layer, you can add registry settings to the layer.

Note:

The Workspace Virtualization Agent does not store data in the virtual HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT key. Instead it stores it in its real location under either HKEY_USERS\USER_TEMPLATE\Software\Classes or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes. At runtime, Windows reads the Workspace Virtualization data for activated layers from these locations and properly renders HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.

To edit registry settings of a virtual software layer

  1. Start the SWV Admin tool.

  2. Click Start > All Programs > Symantec > Workspace > Virtualization > Symantec Workspace Virtualization Admin.

  3. In the SWV Admin tool, double-click the layer.

  4. In the Layer Properties dialog box, click the Registry tab.

    The Registry tab has two nodes to separate registry settings in the read-only and writeable sublayers. When you edit a layer, make sure that you make the changes in the correct node.

  5. To edit registry settings, use the same process as you would with regedit.
