Activating and deactivating virtual software layers

When a virtual software layer is activated, all the contents of the layer are visible. When a layer is deactivated, the contents of the layer are hidden. When you create an application layer, it is activated by default. When a layer is activated, its name is displayed in bold type.

You can activate and deactivate layers locally or remotely. To activate or deactivate a layer remotely, you can use any of the interfaces that manage virtual software layers.

See About the management of virtual software layers

To activate or deactivate a 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, on a layer's right-click menu, click Activate or Deactivate.

    You can select and activate or deactivate multiple layers by holding the Ctrl key.

  4. If you try to deactivate a layer that has a process running, a message prompts you to stop the process. Click Yes to stop the process and deactivate the layer.

    The message also displays a process ID (PID). You can use this PID to look up the process in Windows Task Manager. For information about PIDs, see the Windows Task Manager Help.
