ProfileUnity 5.6 FlexApp does not work and VHD does not mount on Server 2K8 R2

Product: ProfileUnity

Product Version: 5.6 and below

Expires on: 365 days from publish date

Updated: December 3,  2013


FlexApp will not properly run on Server 2K8 R2, although ProfileUnity appears to function normally.

The VHD(s) are not mounting.



When Startup.vbs is ran in the VDI session on the Windows 2K8 R2 (64 Bit) server you can see the directory structure of C:\Program Files\ProfileUnity is missing the folders “Elevation" as well "FlexApp”. The FlexApp disk is not present and no *.vhd's are created in the UNC path.





Possible Resolution(s):

Running ProfileUnity 5.6 on Windows Server 2008 R2 (Datacenter) is not supported,  (will NOT properly install)

Upgrade to ProfileUnity 5.7 | In 5.7, elevation/flexapp will install, ONLY if W2K8's RDS role is OFF.
