When you need to capture multiple app layers, it is useful to use a single virtual machine.

Procedure

  1. Create a standard reference machine on a virtual machine, install the Mirage client, and centralize the device to a reference CVD.
  2. In the Management console, use the Start App Layer Capture option to take a snapshot of the clean pre-install state.
  3. Install the applications.
  4. In the Management console, use the Finalize App Layer Capture option to complete the creation of the app layer.
  5. Wait until the app layer appears in the App Layers view of the Management console.
  6. Revert the virtual machine to the Clean State snapshot.
  7. Wait for the device status to become Pending Assignment.
  8. Repeat 3 to 7 to capture the next app layer.
