Microsoft UE-V – creating a settings location template

Microsoft recently released User Experience Virtualization.  With UE-V nothing roams unless specifically included in templates. A template is an XML file that describes where settings are stored in the file system and in the registry. Typically one template per application or Windows component is used.

UE-V comes with the following ready-to-use templates:

Application Settings:

  •  Office 2010 (Word, Excel, Outlook, Access, Project, PowerPoint, Visio, SharePoint Workspace, InfoPath)
  • Internet Explorer 9 and 10 (favorites, home page, tabs and toolbars)
  • Windows applications (Calculator, Notepad, Wordpad)

Windows Settings:

  • Themes (desktop theme including background, color, sounds and screen saver)
  • Ease of access (accessibility and input settings)

Helge Klien put together a nice article walking you trough this template process and points out some "gotchas" along the way.
