Test your web browsers

A customer wanted to benchmark the most used/wanted internet browsers in a stateless XenDesktop Windows 7 VDI (Firefox, IE, Safari, Chrome)

To really get a good test i was looking for some good websites to test HDX, HTML5, Flash, GL, plugins etc.. I came across this test website http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/  and i love it!!!!

Just try these 2 and also get amazed by the differences between the webbrowsers

1. http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Performance/Chalkboard/
2. http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Performance/Minesweeper/

So who won? it all depends on your configuration of your OS, Applications, plugins, HDX working or not :)

Howto Create MST for RES Workspace Manager 2012 and Deploy it with GPO

Unfortunately there still are alot of customers that dont have tooling like RES Automation Manager or SCCM to manage agents.
Recently i did a SBC project where we needed to deploy RES Workspace Manager to numerous clients with Active Directory.

RES Workspace Manager MSI needs to be installed with switch options (unattended), these options can be made available with an MST file.
Making MST files is not that difficult but hey, if it can be done the easy way why not :)

I’ve used ORCA for creating a MST file, imho a great tooling and its for free!

Enough said, lets explain how to use orca for msi/mst creation.
