“Now that layer definitions have arrived I think that we should create a "Layer Definition Exchange" on Connect. It will be a one-stop place to find completed layer definitions. This will really help everyone find the information that they need to really get full use out of this great new...”
“I would like to better understand Symantec version naming conventions, and all Symantec products following the same one!
When told me a version 6.1 SP7, I do not naturally guess the 6.4.1266 was the same one...
All the same, I can understand not able to guess the 1266, I can tell you, I was...”
“The idea here is to package the SVS runtime too along with .VSA Archive. Also instead of .VSA, make it as a single self-executable .EXE / .COM file where all the runtime/ temporary files are sandboxed.

Sometimes, when you try to capture an application that uses some windows services to install something, there are files and registry entries that aren't captured in the layer.
If you export this layer to another computer it won't work because of the missinge files/registry entries...”
“Some of the discussion aspects might be worth integrating in future SWV, for example
- Layer redirect choice during install
- Global Excludes compatibility of new versions with existing settings at user's site: V6.1 SP6 MP1 HF1 stores Global Excludes in a different manner and ignores settings of...”
I guess I found a bug using SWV on Windows 7 x64bit.
I installed last version of SW6 6.1 SP6 build 6.3.2059 x64, whose registration key was already present in the installed setup file.
I tried to Import previously exported copies of my .xpf files.

“The Symantec Workspace Virtualization - Admin, should receive some improvement to be more compliant windows standards.
From SVS 2.1, now SWV 6.1, and 6.2 and 6.3 : I am a little disappointed because still see the 2 problems below:
