I am using Windows 2008/2012 as my desktop OS for VDI and ProfileDisk will not install.



I have nodes.xml deployed with the correct settings, however ProfileDisk does not get installed or configured when using a Windows server OS (2008 R2 or 2012 R2) as my published desktop OS. startup.exe is detecting RDS role is enabled when it’s not, Microsoft documentation was wrong for the RDS role code.


Possible Resolution(s):

Hotfix for startup.exe is available from LiquidwareLabs technical support. Please open a support case at to obtain hotfix.
