Check for additions and updates to these release notes.

VMware Dynamic Environment Manager™ (formerly known as VMware User Environment Manager) offers personalization and dynamic policy configuration across any virtual, physical, and cloud-based environment. VMware Dynamic Environment Manager can simplify end-user profile management with a single and scalable solution. IT can simply map infrastructure (including networks and printer mappings) and dynamically set policies for end-users. You can experience quick, personalized, and consistent access to your Windows workspace and applications.

  • 1438303: Cannot display button text on some Asian versions of Windows operating systems

    On some Asian versions of Windows operating systems, the button text in the Management Console, the Application Profiler, and the Helpdesk Support Tool might be missing.

    Workaround: Specify the /NoScale command-line argument when you start the Management Console, Application Profiler, and the Helpdesk Support Tool.

  • 1574438: Button text truncated on some Asian versions of Windows operating systems

    On some Asian versions of Windows operating systems, the button text in the Self-Support Tool is truncated if a German Multilingual User Interface is used.

    Workaround: No workaround exists for this issue.

  • 3084950: You might encounter limitations with the Windows 10 Start Menu Windows Common Setting

    Configuration settings for the Start menu itself, such as Show most used apps and Use Start full screen, are not saved.

    Workaround: No workaround exists for this issue.

  • 2870360: COM servers do not trigger DirectFlex processing

    In older versions of Dynamic Environment Manager, instantiating an out-of-process COM object hosted by a DirectFlex-enabled executable triggered DirectFlex processing. With the default DEM configuration, this behavior does not exist.

    Workaround: To enable the old behavior, set REG_DWORD value DirectFlex to 1 in the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Immidio\Flex Profiles key (for Group Policy-based setups), or in the HKLM\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware UEM\Agent\Configuration key (for NoAD).
