Custom classic sticky notes

Jump to solution

Dear All,

I have installed custom classic sticky notes on windows 10 (1909) and capturing it's config file. DEM is capturing normally sticky notes except registry entry which is created when sticky notes are running. This registry entry starts sticky notes at next user session if previously sticky notes was running and this registry entry is deleted if sticky notes are closed. So I think when I send VM to shutdown/sign out sticky notes get closed and registry entry also is deleted and then DEM at logoff cannot find anymore this registry entry. (This is what I think, not sure really)

[INFO ] Exporting Registry information

[DEBUG] ExportRegistry: Exporting value 'HKCU\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\RESTART_STICKY_NOTES'

[DEBUG] ExportRegistry::ExportValue: Key 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run' does not exist (value: 'RESTART_STICKY_NOTES')

[INFO ] Exported Registry information successfully

So DEM config looks like that:

# Flex config file generated with VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Application Profiler version 9.9

[IncludeFolderTrees]

<AppData>\Microsoft\Sticky Notes

#start sticky notes if in previous session was opened

[IncludeIndividualRegistryValues]

HKCU\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\RESTART_STICKY_NOTES

Is there some way how I can capture this registry entry?

My fault, path to registry is wrong, DEM is working like a charm and is exporting value as needed.

Right path: HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\RESTART_STICKY_NOTES

Hi rsaulitis,

DEM won't be able to capture a value that's not there Smiley Happy

Do you have a persistent Windows 10 Version 1909 system to test this on? That would be the easiest way to check what happens at logoff with that RESTART_STICKY_NOTES value in the Run key.
