So, you're all registered for Vision and you're wondering who else from Connect will be there.

We're gonna make it easy on you! Add your name to the comments section in this blog posted in the Vision Community, and Leslie will print you out a nifty sticker with your username and avatar. Then, stop by the Internet Lounge at Vision and pick your sticker up. :)  That way, one of us from Connect will have the opportunity to meet you. And soon, all your fellow Connect users will realize that YOU are the one with all those fabulous comments.

This week we released SWV SP7 (6.4.1266), formally known as Skylark, which what we're calling a hardening release.  After the last two big releases, SP4 and SP6, we decided to make this release focus on only bug fixes so there are no new features that have been added.  We spent a lot of time with existing and new customers working in their environments, and how they used the product, to ensure that SWV is a better product.

This release will be up on the public download site within the next few weeks and for the mean time you can get SP7 by contacting support.


Some of the fixed issues include:

Non-True Type fonts, if in a layer, may not properly load.

Fixed several causes of getting a Black Screen of death upon system startup when SWV is on a machine.

There were instances where scheduled tasks wouldn't run if a layer was active.

Fixed a lot of BSOD conditions.

Many bugs were fixed that will...

Have you ever thought about bringing your SWV packaged layers into a cloud solution?

Without the need to stream them over slow internet connections?

Now that DinamiQs released DinamiQs SMART 3.1.3038 we are also about to release our Hybrid Cloud portal that enables company's to take the most advantage of Symantec Workspace Virtualization.

The DinamiQs hybrid Cloud portal enables you to publish Symantec SWV packages into the cloud for a full seamless experience. Just like you can do with Citrix Xenapp, but without the need to install and manage Terminal servers or Xenapp servers.

DinamiQs now offers you the ability to use SWV applications in a published Windows 7 desktop to facilitate all applications.

How does it work?

  • Create a Windows 7 Virtualised desktop.
  • Setup the DinamiQS Resourcepool allocator that ebales administrator sto alway's have enough clones available as the system automatically clones new...

Managing your Symantec Workspace Virtualized applications never was so easy as today. DVS SMART 3.1.3038 is now released and available at

The new integrated functionality of DVS SMART Free is available to all customers now and offers a very rich enduser managed SWV applications portal.

Where the traditional SWV admin needs full admin or power user privileges, it also brings some dangerous steps inside your environment. Many company's already experienced that end users with power user privileges also can export applications and bring them home. Problem is that the application not only contains the software, but also the license key's for the software.

DinamiQs SMART manages all the applications through a service, so end users do not need elevated permissions to perform basic steps like activate, de-actiavte and reset applications.

DVS SMART 3.1.3038 can now be customised for...

For organizations that would like to temporarily prevent installation from Windows Update, Microsoft has released Windows 7 SP1 blocker tool which allows to block Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and the Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1.

I often ask my IT audiences when I speak at events "What is our purpose?" In other words, why do IT people do what they do and get paid for it? The answer is simpler than most people try to make it. Our primary purpose is to support end-user productivity. If we fail at that, then nothing else we do would be of any value and we would be out of jobs. I will admit there is a secondary category that is protecting confidential data (another thing Symantec is really good at). But that would also be moot if there was nothing of value worth protecting.

So what do users need to be productive, and how do we make sure that they have it? I mentioned in the last blog that "the desktop (virtual or otherwise) is the work environment, not the work itself." Think of the desktop as an office you enter to do your work. You want a comfortable chair, good lighting etc., but if you...

Feb 1st a new version of VME (Virtual Memory Extender) will be released.
The new version is available in 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 GB.
With VME you can run your desktops, servers and Virtual machines with up to 64 GB of virtual memory without adding fysical memory modules.
This is very helpfull if your desktop or server does not support more memory modules or your operating system does not support more then 3 GB of memory.

Experience the power of your desktop, laptop or server running up to 64 GB of memory besides the fysical memory added.

If your server has 32 GB of memory, the VME installed in your virtual servers allows you to use more memory then your fysical host contains allowing to run double the density of vm's per host.

VME contains a subset of routines to make your desktops faster running Symantec Virtualised Applications. The specific VSA controls make your virtualised applications run up to twice as fast as usual.
