As many SVS\SWV packagers can tell you Office 2007 can require some effort to Virtualize and on Vista there's more work to be done. One error that's confusing is: "This document could not be registered. It will not be possible to create links from other documents to this document." and while it appears mostly on Vista you can run into it on Windows XP.  The root cause is what Fonts you have in the base or in the layer just like the "There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font" errors you see, which is more common and both of which are more prevalent in SWV then SVS.

Why?  Well with SWV we fixed the font loading issues so fonts now correctly load on a layer activate or when set to Activate On System Startup, which means no more having...

Recently I posted about a change in capture behavior for SWV which is one of two bigs changes on what we capture, the other is that SWV no longer ignores LSASS by default (you can always add it to the program ignore list) for both capture and regular use, this is a big change and it will allow you to capture security policies in a layer as well as allow certain apps, such as Microsoft SQL Sever, to capture in a layer.  For security polices in a layer to take affect you need to set the layer to start on system startup.

SVS always has, and still does, ignore LSASS because earlier builds would get into endless boot cycles when any security policy information got captured into a layer, but SWV 6.1 no longer has this issue.  And while you can capture security policies in a layer that doesn't mean you should do so, there can be consequences so throughly...

As we all know a lot of processing takes place when a user logs on to a system.  In order to make the user experience as pleasant as possible many administrators delay certain processes from running at logon time.

Customers have asked if there is a way to delay the Symantec Workspace Streaming agent from checking in with the streaming server at logon.  This can be accomplished by adding the following line to the AppstreamCfg.txt.

PrePopulation.WaitForDesktopAfterLogin = # (where # is the number of seconds that to wait).

The AppstreamCfg.txt file is stored in the %ProgramFiles%\Altiris\StreamingAgent\bin folder.  This parameter is only read when the streaming agent starts up, so you will either need to reboot the machine or stop and restart the AWE 6.1 Streaming Agent service.

My goal is to create a USB memory key to use in case of emergency. Recovery computer from virus, hard disk crash, Bsod, or other issue, where the only solution is a manual operation. Many times I had to find the right software utility to complete my USB Swiss Army Knife.

Prerequisite to create a complete software collection to use on USB memory key is the portability and possible the freeware license.

Somewhere on the internet, I found several utilities, for example I have described some of these in my previous posts on Juice.

Ever run into a layer that you just couldn't export, delete, or maybe even reset without an error? There can be a few different causes, such as a file in the layer being locked. But there is one very consistent, reproducible, and easily avoided cause that I've identified -- our old friend Dr. Watson.


You've probably heard me speak about how SVS -- unlike other app virtualization products -- does not have it's own access control mechanism. SVS relies on and "passes through" the native Windows security model. Normally this is a good thing. It means SVS doesn't significantly alter how you manage a machine from a security perspective; your existing tools (including audit tools) work normally with the content of SVS virtual layers.

In addition, Symantec is not introducing another information assurance component into the...
