Creating an application layer using global capture

For most applications, we recommend that you use the single program capture method. Only use the global capture method if the single program capture method does not properly capture the installation of an application.

See Methods for capturing virtual software layers

To create an application layer, all layers on the computer must be deactivated.

To create an application layer with global capture

  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 the File menu, click Create New Layer.

  4. On the first dialog box, click Install application, and then click Next.

  5. On the second dialog box, type a name for the layer, and then click Next. Layer names are limited to 50 characters.

  6. On the Capture dialog box, click Global capture, and then click Next.

  7. Click Finish.

    A rotating icon appears in the system tray.

  8. Run the installation program of the application.

  9. (Optional) After the installation is complete, open the application, configure its default settings, and then exit it.

    For example, you might set a default home page or custom security settings.

  10. (Optional) Run the installation program of one or more programs and open each application to set default settings.

  11. Right-click the rotating icon in the system tray and click Stop Capture.

    The layer appears in the SWV Admin tool.
