I'm using Login VSI 3.7 with Office 2010.

I'm seeing an issue where Word thinks that the Ctrl key is being held down, and it prompts to start Word in safe mode which breaks the test run.

Has anyone seen this before, or does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it?

There is a feature that can reset a stuck control key in v3.x.

in the MMC/Custom settings configure (see attached screenie):

If that works and CTRL is indeed stuck then you should see this in the log files:
"VSI_ReleaseCTRL", "Down Ctrl detected", "START"
"VSI_ReleaseCTRL", "Down Ctrl detected", "FINISH"

As it may take a call to see why the CTRL key is stuck or what possible reason is that CTRL is not working.

That seemed to help a little bit, but, the problem still occurs.
Where would these particular log files be located? On the VSI Share or the virtual desktop?

Also, are you guys open for phone support this time of year?

What our customers are saying

Tristan Todd - VMware

“Login VSI is my favorite test orchestration and simulation tool for large-scale reference architecture testing. Not only do we use it in our testing, but we work with partners who use Login VSI exclusively, with the idea that you create the most realistic simulated workload at scale, to really test infrastructure and software capabilities. What’s more, getting the results and be able to measure yourself across platforms and across vendor solutions is just fantastic and is unequalled in the industry.”

Tristan Todd, EUC Architect at VMware

Dan O'Farrell - Dell

"The primary goal of our VDI appliances is to simplify and to take the guesswork out of VDI, and the Login VSI tests help us to do that from a performance expectation capability. When we offer one of our appliances to our customers, we deliver benchmarks that are validated using multiple Login VSI workloads. When compared to a customer’s workload, these Login VSI-enabled benchmarks allow precise sizing estimations to be created."

Dan O'Farrell, Director, Product Marketing, Cloud & Client at Dell
