Optimise Windows 7 guest OS

Jump to solution

Hi everyone.

Can somebody please point me in the right direction for tips on how to best optimise Windows 7(ultimate) for View.

I've got some official VMware courseware on how to optimise XP i.e. Turn off theme enhancements, disable screen savers, full hardware acceleration, delete hidden update folders, disable indexing services, disable Windows paging, turn off sounds, remove restore points, remove unwanted apps, turn off disk perfmon etc. but was wandering if ther's some official VMware guidelines on how to optimize W7 in a similar fashion (i can't find any).

I've found on the web, which may be a good starting point, but if anyone knows of any other references, I'd be grateful.

Thanks

PK

No problem. I haven't had a chance to review it yet because we are just starting on Windows 7. I hope it's got a ton of detail.

I have taken that original command.cmd file and modified it. I removed things that can easily be controlled (and changed) by AD GPO and added in some customization for the desktop. Feel free to use or ignore.
