Script terminated[Appfocus[UserRead] does not exist waited for:120sec.]Script has stopped. User will not logoff Script terminated[Appfocus;[UserRead] does exist but cannot be activated after: 10 retries]Terminate Workaround as per the reference from forum: http://www.loginvsi.com/en/forum/support/163-script-terminatedappfocususerread-don-t-exist This means VSI attempted to start Word but Word wasn’t active after the timeout, 120 seconds in this case. If this happens near the end of the test this is likely an indication that your server is at or near it’s max. You can try increasing the WinWait Timeout. You can increase the WinWait Timeout by going to Workload Configuration in the management console. There’s a setting called WinWait Timeout. Clear the default checkbox and increase the timeout. In the attached example I’ve increased the timeout to 300 seconds (5 minutes).
Microsoft Outlook first time wizard promptSolution to prevent this wizard to pop up when opening Office products for first time: Import the ADM templates from OCT available in MS webite: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=18968 Open Group Policy Management Editor: Policy Name = <OUName>-<OUName > Right-click > Edit..

Multiple XenDesktop or XenApp web interfaces opens without opening the viewer console windows.This can be cause due to multiple reasons:
- Receiver hangs due to insufficient resources in the LoginVSI launcher VM.
- If total no. of sessions is more than the permissible (recommended) limit of 40-45 sessions per launcher.
- It can also occur if the T1 and T2 values are not set appropriately. Recommended value to T1 should be half of T2 e.g. if T1=5, then T2=10. But the values can always be adjusted based on your environment, factors such as total no. of user sessions under test, total no. of launchers used for running the entire test.
Adobe pop ups – EULA and/or feedback window promptsLoginVSI target setup contains adobe reader pre-configured. It uses a custom installation. A MFT file that prevent all these issues. However, if the target setup is executed on a system that already has Adobe Reader installed, the installation will not continue, leaving the original installation. The VSI target setup installs Adobe reading using the following command line. Please note that the MST file has been copied to the temp folder before starting this command line. “Target Setup\Lib\lib Apps\Adobe\Reader.exe” /sPB /rs /MSI TRANSFORMS=%TEMP%\Reader.mst This will make sure Adobe Reader does not ask for updates, EULA screens etc. Just executing the executable in the Adobe executable in the target setup package does nothing different than a normal Adobe setup. Also make sure the existing Adobe installation is removed using the Add/Remove programs section of the control panel. Otherwise the installer might skip certain steps as it detects Adobe is already partially installed. This prompt may be due to an installation of Adobe already present on the system(base image)? The Target setup will not overwrite an existing installation. The Target setup version of Adobe Reader should not show either of these dialogs. Reference: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2560486 Reference: Go to http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/cant-click-accept-acrobat-reader.html. Advanced solution 3 in particular. You can add those registry keys to your base image. Alternatively you can use the HKCU key of the registry key mentioned in the article and add the registry key to C:\Program Files\Login Consultants\VSI\Files\shellsettings.reg Uninstall Adobe Reader on the base image. Reinstall Adobe Reader with below command silently so to avoid license agreement and download patches popups: C:\Users\puray>C:\install_reader10_en_gtbd_aih.exe /sAll /rs /l /msi “/qb-! /norestart ALLUSERS=1 EULA_ACCEPT=YES SUPPRESS_APP_LAUNCH=YES”
There are no results or log files are invalidPossible Cause
- If the data (logs generated from test) you select does not have VSImax reached is considered an invalid data. Hence analyzer throws this error. Ensure you’re the test that you run is successful which means it must have reached VSImax.
- If you still get the error, try to replace the files in C:\Program Files\Login Consultants\VSI\Analyzer (copy from installation folder)
VSI Management Console – unhandled exception has occurred in your applicationPossible Cause This may occur while opening the VSI management console first time after installation, if .NET 3.5 framework is missing in your launcher machine. Even if you’ve 4.0 .NET framework (since it is not backward compatible) you still will get the error, so 3.5 is pre-requisite. The VSI management console is the component that needs the .NET framework (and the analyzer). The VSI launcher doesn’t need the .NET framework.
Bullzip PDF printer – do you want to overwrite it?The first dialog is caused by Adobe Reader not closing (properly). It keeps the PDF file in use and causes VSI to be unable to clean it up between test loops.
Citrix Receiver – do you want to optimize content designed for FlashPrompt is coming via Citrix Receiver that is installed on the LoginVSI launcher server. Applying policy as mentioned here http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/topic/xenapp65-admin/hd-flash-enable-client-ad.html To enable Flash Redirection on the user device Configure Enable HDX MediaStream Flash Redirection on the user device to determine whether Flash Redirection is enabled on your users’ Windows devices. If no configuration is set, one of the following will occur, based on your users’ environment: Desktop Lock is used: Flash Redirection is enabled by default. All other conditions: The user receives a dialog box the first time they access Flash content in each session in which the user can enable HDX MediaStream Flash Redirection. In the Group Policy Object Editor, expand either the Computer Configuration or User Configuration node. Expand the Administrative Templates and Classic Administrative Templates (ADM) nodes and select HDX MediaStream Flash Redirection – Client. From the Setting list, select Enable HDX MediaStream Flash Redirection on the user device and click policy setting. Select Not Configured, Enabled, or Disabled. If you selected Enabled, from the Use HDX MediaStream Flash Redirection list, select Always, Ask, Never, or Only with Second Generation. Note: Selecting Ask results in users receiving the Citrix Receiver – Flash dialog box the first time they access Flash content in each session in which the user can enable Flash Redirection. If the user does not enable Flash Redirection, the Flash content is played on the server. Selecting Always, Never, and Only with Second Generation does not result in this dialog box. Select Always to always use Flash Redirection to play Flash content on the user device. Select Never to never use Flash Redirection and have Flash content play on the server. Select Only with Second Generation to use the latest Flash Redirection functionality when the required configuration is present and revert to server-side rendering when the required configuration is not present. Enable HDX flash redirection, setting to ‘Never’ which means Flash Redirection and have Flash content play on the server. Apply it on Computer Configuration.
Kid-key-Lock – good for uninterrupted test runs but is it really useful?
Is it kid-key really needed? Ideally it locks your virtual desktop(s) session(s) and gives an uninterrupted LoginVSI scripts to run without any external interruption. This tool disables any keyboard inputs.
Therefore, during the test when VM is hung and needs your intervention, it does not let you do anything. So your complete test is unsuccessful just because of one session. Force you to login in safe mode or uninstall this tool from the base image.
Note: For a successful test, you should not intervene during test runs. Based on experiences mostly it is your environment which is responsible for unsuccessful or interrupted test runs.More to follow……
