Resolved issues


Feature Resolved Issue Defect ID
Virtualization Virtualizing a package which contains CAB files failed if you did not use the manual configuration feature. This was because "Copy all source media" (CAB files etc.) was turned off by default. This hotfix changes the default setting to "Copy all Source Media", so that virtualization with CAB files now completes successfully. TF# 246567
Virtualization Virtualization of .EXE files was not supported where the target platform was App-V. This hotfix enables that support. TF# 225292
Virtualization When using XP SP3 for virtualization, the VM could not be shut down or re-started. This is now fixed. TF# 245392
Dashboard The issue applied to Dashboard, if the same package was loaded into a single database from two different folder locations. When the Top 5 Issues were viewed in Dashboard, an IIS error was displayed. This is corrected by this hotfix. TF# 246573
Dashboard Dashboard was displaying incorrect counts of incompatible applications in the Best Way Forward charts. This is corrected by this hotfix. TF# 246432
User Guide The 5.2 User Guide contained a number of omissions and inaccuracies. These have been corrected and this hotfix will place a revised User Guide in the local folder. TF# 246676
CAS Next Steps For issues identified during CAS compatibility checking, additional documentation is provided by this hotfix. For each issue, this documentation contains a description and suggested next steps. Documentation is in the form of Microsoft Word files and is stored in the Next Steps folder. TF# 225626
