I was helping out on a project with XA.65 and RES WM 2011 in combination with mandatory profiles. The customer wanted to pre-define some settings in Office using the Run-Once option but after some tests we noticed that these User settings weren’t preserved, obviously the files and registry settings modified to make these changes weren’t in the Global Settings Template for the Office installation we’re using.
As the Customer Preview of Windows 8 was released yesterday and I had some additional time today I wanted to install the VDA in the Windows 8 CP. I already tried the VDA installation with the Windows 8 developers release but that wouldn’t work, it came up with the Windows 8 version of a BSOD. So with this new release and the release of VDA Version 5.5.100 I thought why not just try again.
