I need clarification on VSI Support on Japanese Windows OS.
I would like to check performance of my Virtual Desktops(Japanese Windows OS) in XenDesktop - Esxi 5.0 environment.

Would like to know on whether with LoginVSI tool i could able to check the performance of the Virtual Desktops(Japanese Windows OS).

When i gone through Getting Started, there it is mentioned like English OS will be supported.

Could you please confirm me on this. Your support would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Hello Ajith,

Yes VSI supports the Japanese version of both Windows and Office. To use VSI with a non English version of Windows or Office you will need to make some configuration changes. VSI uses window titles to interact with the applications used in the workload. To be able to find the Japanese version of the applications these titles will need to be changed. I've added an screenshot of the window titles as they were changed by a customer.

If you only use the Japanese version of Windows but the English version of Office only a subset of these will need to be set. I have a template that you can import into the management console that will set all the settings in the screenshot.

See the attached file for the template.

Steps to import the template. Please note that this template also sets the Office Version to 14 (2010)!
1. Put the file japanese.wpr somewhere where your VSI admin console can access it.
2. Open the VSI management console. Go to Workload Configuration and click on Open Test Profile.
3. Browse to the location in step 1 and open the japanese.wpr file.
4. The Japanese settings have been imported.
5. Change the office version back to what it needs to be under Office Verson at the top of the Workload Configuration.

Do not forget to save the changes!
