Version: 9

Capture Mode: Single Program Capture

Requires reboot.

Corel Draw 9 install fairly cleanly into a layer. One item to note:

On reactivation of the layer, Corel installs Microsoft DOA 3.5. This gets added to the Read/Write section of the layer. This data does not need to be moved. If Corel Draw does not find it will reinstall it, so resetting the layer doesn't matter.

There are no known issues at this time. But, remember to add an exclusion for the file extensions of your photos (jpg, bmp, etc..) to avoid losing them on a reset of the application Layer.

Version(s): 1.2.2

Virtualized App Guy | 30 Nov 2008 | 0 comments

Application Name: Delphi

Application Vendor: Borland

Application Version: 7, SP1

What OS was the VSA capture performed on: Win XP Pro running in a vmWare virtual machine

Import from VSA tested to work on different machine (Y/N): Not yet

List of OS versions VSA was tested on: Just Win XP

Capture hints: I used global capture to install the IDE, the update and manually copied and installed all the 3rd party components

Suggested/Optional package edits: none

Things to watch for: for whatever reason, Delphi while the svs is in update mode would work perfectly. When launched in normal mode (after activating the layer), it would give me all kinds of error messages saying the component's packages could not be found.. sure enough, the packages (*.bpl) where in the proper path, but the Delphi compile process didn't copy the same packages to the Windows\System32 directory.. once i found that, I set the layer to update mode, manually...
