Durning initial test the Office Activation window keeps popping up and we can do anything on the screen to move the test on.

It just sits there.

Any idea how to get the activation to work?

The easiest way would be to activate office :)

To work around the office issue the easiest way is to make a script that detects the office activation window and closes it right away (in for instance autoit). This script can then be executed as custom action within VSI or directly from the logon script. The problem however with the activation wizard is that it popups “whenever it feels like it” so therefore it might interfere with the test.

In autoit the code can be as simple as.

If windowexists(“activation”) then winclose(“activation”)

"We use Login VSI as a level set. If we are looking at a system that we are putting on brand new hardware or that we are putting in the cloud, we may see those environments completely differently but the end result is: is the user going to have a good solid happy user experience? And what Login VSI provides us on all three platforms is fairly consistent apples-to-apples comparison: is the user happy?"
