The Dynamic Workspace – Take your settings with you

By | February 2, 2011

When you use SBC or VDI, you probably have multiple environments where you log on. In most cases you have different settings on your local laptop and on your hosted environment. Wouldn’t it be nice when you have the same settings on every system? So you only have to create one custom dictionary in Word or change that proofing setting only once? With the new RES Workspace Manager 2011 this is really simple and the good news is, it’s free! Per April 1, 2011, RES will release Workspace Manager 2011 in an Express Edition, which offers free profile management for unlimited users.

How does it work? On every system you have to install the RES Workspace Manager agent. The agent will monitor applications and captures settings of applications to a central folder, like a homedirectory, and reloads them on application launch. So you don’t have to logon again to apply changes, just restart the application. You don’t have to configure what settings must be captured. The agent just monitors the executable and sees what settings are changed by the executable or dependent executables.

If you want to see how it works, take a look at the following movie:
