With VMware Dynamic Environment Manager, you can configure the initial settings of an application without having to rely on the defaults of the application. You can define the application settings that the user can personalize and the settings that always remain unchanged each time the user opens the application. In this way, you can combine policy-enforced settings and user personalization.

You can also use VMware Dynamic Environment Manager to manage certain user environment settings when an application starts. For example, you can configure drive and printer mappings, apply custom settings for files and folders, and registry, and run custom tasks. You can also define settings and configurations for all users to guarantee compliance and provide a consistent environment.

You can use the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Application Profiler to capture predefined settings for an application. You can run the application on a reference system that Application Profiler monitors and configure the settings that you want.
