About me

My name is Niels Geursen and I work as a consultant at Login Consultants.

I started my career in the year 2000. The past 17 year I learned the IT challenges from small to enterprise companies. In all these years I also got the opportunity to educate myself by following courses and doing exams for Citrix, Microsoft and VMware. This let to the following certification: MCSE 2012, CCE-V, VCP6-DTM and a lot more.

My experience is mainly focusing on end-user computing however I am currently trying to get familiar with VMware Airwatch to get the hang on Enterprise Mobility Management.

Hope you have fun reading my Blog!

Slow application start times VMware UEM and App-V

When users need to wait for 60 seconds until they can interact with the application the user experience is impacted. We encountered this behaviour at a costumer and needed to troubleshoot this.

To read more on how I found the problem by excluding antivirus and group policy settings see my guest blog post at Logit Blog

App-V 5.0 registry import not working using dynamic config

A few weeks ago I called my colleague Ryan Bijkerk of www.logitblog.com with the question can VDI tuning break App-V? This inspired him to write a nice article on how performance optimization van break App-V which can be found here.

Within our company we are using VDI for desktops and App-V 5.0 for application virtualization.  Also we did some performance tuning on the VDI’s. Everything was working fine until we we got an App-V application with a registry import via the DynamicConfiguration.xml. First I thought this was an issue with one of the settings we did with the performance tuning maybe we disabled a services that was needed. This was the reason for my call with Ryan.

So I started my troubleshooting by enabling the disabled services without any luck. The registry import was still not working. So I started Googling and I came a cross the following site http://www.app-v.info which let me to the Blog of Trentent. His blog provide the solution by setting the following value:

Registry location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\AppV\Subsystem key:
Value: NoBackgroundRegistryStaging
Data Type: DWORD
Data: 0

You can read the full article here about the the registry value.
