The VMware App Volumes 2.18.10 release has security updates and bug fixes.


App Volumes documentation is available in English.

Resolved Issues

  • Occasional failure in deleting a user's Writable volume. As a result, the user is unable to delete the Writable Volume and create a volume. [2521454]

  • A user-initiated reboot during a package update, prior to the reboot requested by App Volumes as part of capture complete, results in App Volumes deleting any service present on the package. [2724792]

  • When aksfridge.sys, a driver from Aladdin Knowledge Systems, is present on a virtual machine with either a Writable Volume or an Appstack, a blue screen (BSOD) error occurs. [2734177]

Known Issues

  • AppCheck might report a WEBrick-related vulnerability in App Volumes Manager. [2712891]

    NOTE: VMware has evaluated this issue and believes that App Volumes Manager is not impacted by the Ruby vulnerability as per CVE-2020-25613

    Workaround: None.

  • When using Microsoft Outlook Cached Exchange Mode with a UIA-only type Writable Volume and no profile persistence solution such as VMware Dynamic Environment Manager or roaming profiles, a new .ost cache file is created in the user’s volume upon each login.

    Workaround: Use a profile management solution.

  • When many users are logging into their desktops simultaneously, Writable Volumes may not get created for a few users and they might not be able to log in to a desktop.
    Note: This issue does not occur if the users already have an existing Writable Volume.

    Workaround: The users must log in again or have an administrator pre-create the Writable Volume for the user.

  • A Writable Volume move or copy operation may fail when bulk operations are performed on many volumes.

    Workaround: Retry the move or copy operation.
