Hello Ven,

Login VSI creates an Outlook profile by importing a registry key through the logon script. The logon script runs very early in the logon process. It runs shortly after group policy has been applied. I expect that the VMware View Persona Management overwrites these settings as it runs later.

My suggestion would be to import the settings again later in the logon process. Do the following:
1. Create a batch script to import a registry file.
2. Place the batch in your VSIshare.
3. Configure the batch script to run as the first custom action.

In more detail:
1. Create a batch script to import a registry file.
Create a batch file with the following content or download it here .
IF EXIST "%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\" (SET OfficeVersion=11.0)
IF EXIST "%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE12\" (SET OfficeVersion=12.0)
IF EXIST "%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE14\" (SET OfficeVersion=14.0)
IF EXIST "%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE15\" (SET OfficeVersion=15.0) 
IF EXIST "%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\" (SET OfficeVersion=11.0)
IF EXIST "%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE12\" (SET OfficeVersion=12.0)
IF EXIST "%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE14\" (SET OfficeVersion=14.0)
IF EXIST "%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE15\" (SET OfficeVersion=15.0) 
echo Detected office version: %officeversion%. Applying settings
 
IF NOT EXIST "%systemroot%\SysWOW64\" (
regedit /s "B:\Office%OfficeVersion%.reg"
)
IF EXIST "%systemroot%\SysWOW64\" (
"%systemroot%\sysWOW64\regedit.exe" /s "B:\Office%OfficeVersion%.reg"
)

2. Place the batch in your VSIshare
Save the above script in the VSIshare. By placing the script of the VSIshare we ensure that every VSI user has access to the script. We'll refer to the script in the next step.

3. Configure the batch script to run as the first custom action.
- Go to the VSI management console and switch to the Workload Customization tab.
- Click add entry. Make sure that it is the first entry.
- Under filename add the path to the script in the VSIshare. Refer to the script by a UNC path.

Run a test and see if it solves your problem.

I found the issue .When installing the view agent in the VM ,it is creating an office15 folder in c:\Programfiles\Microsoftoffice location.The folder has LyncTsProxy.dll (PcoIP to RDP virtual channel) .The logon script dectecting this folder and setting the office version as 15 .So i deleted the following two lines in my logon script and outlook started working.

IF EXIST "%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE14\" (SET OfficeVersion=14.0)
IF EXIST "%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE15\" (SET OfficeVersion=15.0)

My office version is 2007 and view agent version is 5.2 .Does it make sense ? or is there anyway to get rid of this issue


Thanks

Hi Ven,

This makes sense. If this works successfully I suggest to keep this.

Omar

What our customers are saying

Keith Hageman - Micron

"When I joined Micron in June 2014, the first thing I did is find out if we have a copy of Login VSI and if we could run a 1000 user test case instance (which we could). We use Login VSI to run tests for customers and for case studies and I really have loved Login VSI for the last 3 or 4 years.”

Keith Hageman, Senior Solutions Architect at Micron Technology


Rob Girard - Tintri

"You would be somewhat nuts to go to production with VDI without first and constantly re-evaluating with Login VSI. Always run all your changes through it so there are no surprises. Surprises in VDI never just hit one or two users--it's all or nothing.”

Rob Girard, Technical Marketing Engineer at Tintri


Kelly Murphy - Gridstore

"Ultimately, VDI is about performance. If a customer's virtual experience is not as fast as the physical experience, they don’t use it. Login VSI is great in helping us to really quantify and to show performance, to test systems and design those systems in such a way to ensure that you can deliver that kind of performance."
