Working with our clients in Physical, Virtual/VDI and Cloud environments we see many of the same issues. This video shows the top 5 issues that we have found and helped clients resolve.
On virtual machines, even though there is no vGPU in the host, VMware tools still have a driver that looks like a GPU to the OS and the applications. Making a few simple tweaks to the registry, group policy, or ProfileUnity to turn off hardware acceleration to core applications on non vGPU virtual machines can result in a CPU reduction on your host operating system.
More information can be found here: https://community.liquidware.com/discussion/39/stratusphere-spotcheck-methodology-cheat-sheet
The attached PDF will guide you through disabling hardware acceleration either through GPO, Registry, or ProU for the following applications:
- Google Chrome
- Mozilla Firefox
- Microsoft Office
- Internet Explorer
The attached TXT file is a registry module import for ProU. Please remove the .txt to make it a .json for import.
Stratusphere has a lot of data. The SpotCheck documents and methodology are designed to help clients focus on key metrics. SpotCheck is not an exhaustive “Health Check” of the systems but can identify high impact issues that can affect the users. Think of the SpotCheck documents as a cheat sheet of industry standard metrics and their accepted max values.
SpotCheck Docs for Virtual, Physical and Cloud Environments are Attached.

Finally, you should use the following process to optimize your image, assuming you are using version 1607-1903 of Windows 10:
First, download the attached .TXT file and rename it to an .XML
1. Run the attached template in the same directory as the VMWare Optimizer.
2. Run the VMWare Optimizer, select the FPC_Windows 10_Version 7 template, select Analyze and then Optimize.
3. Disable the user account that you're currently logged into.
4. Enable the SID-500 master Administrator account and set a password.
5. Reboot. There will be an error at login where it tries to login with the cached account that you first used to build the OS. This is normal.
6. Login with the Administrator account.
7. Snapshot and save the image. You can now clone it for use as an FlexApp Packaging Console. Enjoy!
