Known issues

Workspace Environment Management contains the following issues:

  • On Windows Server 2012 R2, if Adobe Acrobat Reader is installed, it prevents Workspace Environment Management from associating PDF files with other PDF reader applications. Users are forced to select the PDF reader application each time they open a PDF. [WEM-33]

  • In the Security tab, when you clear the option Process DLL Rules, the rule count reported next to the “DLL Rules” collection is set to zero, regardless of the actual number in the WEM database. [WEM-425]

  • When you use a configuration object with Workspace Environment Management PowerShell modules SDK cmdlets, all parameters must be specified. If they are not, the command fails with an InvalidOperation error. [WEM-691, WEM-693]

  • In PowerShell, when you use the help command with the -ShowWindow switch to display help in a floating window for a Workspace Environment Management PowerShell cmdlet, the Examples section of the help is unpopulated. To see the examples, use the get-help command with the -examples, -detailed, or -full switch instead. [WEM-694]

  • StoreFront-based assigned application actions, which have been configured for Transformer, do not appear correctly in the vertical task manager toolbar at the right-hand side of the Transformer kiosk window. Some icons may appear as incorrect duplicate icons. Users can still open StoreFront-based assigned applications from shortcuts in the main Applications tab. [WEM-1056]

  • If multiple session support is enabled on a Windows server OS machine, application security rules of previously logged on users are replaced by rules of more recently logged on users. For example, if a rule is assigned to user1 but not to user2, when user2 logs on the rule is deleted from local AppLocker rules. Thus the rule cannot be enforced for user1 as well. A workaround for this issue is to ensure rules are merged and not replaced. To do this, manually edit a specific setting in the WEM database as described in CTX233578. [WEM-1070]

  • Application Security features are not available if the Workspace Environment Management administration console is installed on Windows 7 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (or earlier versions). In the Security tab, none of the Application Security options can be selected. [WEM-1216, LC9023]
