Hi - I am testing the medium workload on Windows 7 platform. The VSI.exe process starts and quits straight away. Are there any debug switches i can use to see why this isnt kicking off the workload (office 2007)

For anyone else reading this. This was already solved over a GoToMeeting call but the solution was changing the engine startup setting from Shell to Chained.

By default VSI expects to run shortly after group policies have been applied. Well before Windows Explorer is started. In this case VSI sets itself up to be executed once Explorer has loaded by setting a registry key under the current user RunOnce
If the VSI logon script is started by an alternate method that does not run (or complete) before Windows Explorer is started then the engine startup setting needs to be changed to chained. The chained setting causes the engine startup to be chained directly to the logon script.

"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."

"We are using Login VSI for hardware scaling. By testing the number of users that can run on our environment, we know the amount of hardware that we will need upfront. We also use Login VSI in our production acceptance process to test changes to the system to evaluate changes to the environment."

Shaun Donaldson - Bitdefender

"As a software vendor, the reason that we became a Login VSI customer is that we wanted to see how we compared to our competitors. After talking to VMware and Citrix about how they test their products, it became clear to me that we needed to follow our strategic partners and be able to show how our product compares favorably to our competitors. We just completed a round of tests using Login VSI and you will see white papers showing performance data."
