Microsoft Application Virtualization (also known as App-V) is an application virtualization and application streaming solution from Microsoft. This page provides information regarding running a Spotlight Client in an App-V deployment.
Spotlight supports deploying a global configuration file
which will be copied to the user-specific location on startup of the Spotlight Client.
Here is an example file which pre-configures the three most useful items:
<UserConfigurations> <!-- remove startup nagging --> <ConfigItem Name="Running for First Time" ProductId="SoSSE" Value="bool:0"/> <!-- this configures the address the DS connects first during startup --> <ConfigItem Name="Diagnostics Server\PreferredAddress" ProductId="Global" Value="str:fully.qualified.host.name"/> <!-- starts with the All heatmap --> <ConfigItem Name="StartupEnterprise\Location" ProductId="Console" Value="str:DSManager.ViewsTabs."All"\DSManager.HeatMap\\"All""/> </UserConfigurations>
This is a simple XML file which should be straight-forward to configure for anyone familiar with App-V. For a complete list of all supported configuration options please consult a config.xml file from an already installed Spotlight client, which can be found in
%AppData%\Quest Software\Spotlight\<hex id>\config.xml
