In Workspace Virtual Composer (WVC) 6.1 SP7, when an exclude entry is created for a package, such as “D:”, it is changed to “[SYSTEMDRIVE]\D:” after a COMPILE action. This behavior is not seen when using the SWV Admin Tool, or by simply importing the package into WVC.

This issue will be fixed in a future release of WVC. For now, the recommended workaround is to use the “Layer Exclude Finder” tool, as it checks the “_SWV_LAYER_1\HU\USER_TEMPLATE\Software\Classes” location to determine what excludes are there, so it can then add them as excludes to the layer itself.

The tool can be downloaded and is explained in the following Connect article:

An example of how the tool is used within WVC can be seen in the following Connect article:
