App Volumes 2.6 Blue Screen during Logoff

Hi all,

We are evaluating App Volumes in Version 2.6

When a User with assigned Apps (Office 2013, Adobe Professional....) logs off from a windows 8 VM, he get's a Blue Screen in the Windows 8 VM most of the time.

The Message in the Blue Screen is every time different so i think it will not help to specify one off them. (sometimes NTFS.SYS)

I think it happens because of disconnecting the vmdk's from the virtual Machines during the log off Process..

I tried different fresh installed machines always same as the version of the system where i captured the Application

Sometimes i get a Blue Screen even on only opening the enrolled Application.


Vsphere 5.5 U2

ESXi 5.5 U2 with actual Patch level

AppVOL 2.6

Manager on Server 2012R2 with local SQL express DB (because of test environment)

Agent 2.6 on Windows 8 64bit VM and on Windows 8.1 64 bit VM (But 8.1 is actual not supported i think)

All Systems are fresh installed Applications where captured on same Version and patch level as client.

Any Ideas ?

Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 are not supported with App Volumes 2.6.  Does the same issue occur with a Windows 7 VM with Windows 7 provisioned AppStacks? 


Hi, thanks for your answer.

I will try it with windows7 VMs.

But i am afraid that we cant use it for production if thats the case, because most of the View VMs are already on Windows 8.1
