I created an appstack for Visio and when I launch it for the first time on a instant clone desktop It goes through the configuration wizard. Based on VMware Knowledge Base this seems to be the normal behaviour.
Note: When an Office application is launched for the first time on the assigned machine, the application performs certain configurations. Wait for the configuration process to complete successfully.
Has anyone been able to figure out how to prevent this from happening every single time a user logs into a new desktop by capturing a setting with UEM?
UEM has all the necessary settings for it to capture Visio and its changes. I use office (in gold image) and visio(in appstack) on 2.13.1 and I don't have this issue in my environment.
Did you add anything in the UEM configurations for Office to capture additional settings ?
I used a clone of the parent image, removed the VMware agent and installed Visio through a SCCM package. Did you make any additional steps ?
UEM is used to capture settings. If you need to capture application changes I would suggest writable volumes.
For Visio appstack:
I clone the gold image which has office installed. Login with a user account that has admin privs and no assigned appstacks. Provision a new appstack, install visio, open it up a few times and make changes, and finish capture.
That didn’t work
It’s really strange if I wait a couple of minutes after logging into the desktop and than launching Visio I don’t notice the issue. It seems to be a timing issue between the attachment of the appatack and activation of Visio. Any other suggestions ?
