DEM 2006 Computer Environment issues

This post was originally published on this site

We run into some strange problems with the VMWARE Horizon DEM Computer Environment ADMX based Settings.

I’ve configured all the VMWARE instructions as mentioned overhere: FlexEngine Configuration for Computer Environment Settings


Despite all the correct registry settings, the policies are invariably ignored because of this error:

Error: Path ‘SERVERDEMConfig$General’ must be an existing directory. Not processing computer environment settings.


And that’s weird because the path ‘SERVERDEMConfig$General’ is also used for the User Environment ADMX based Settings and they work like a charm.



I’ve already changed the ConfigFilePath in the Registry to SERVERDEMConfig$ , reprovisioned the Golden Image and tested it again. Unfortunately the result / error is exact the same.

I’ve also recreated the Registry Folder and settings again, to make sure there is no typo or corrupted character. But whatever I do, the result stays the same.

And Yes, all the permissions on the share are ok. Like I said: the User Environment settings work great. 


We use DEM 2006 on Horizon 8 and Windows 10 2004 as Golden Image.

Anybody having this same issue? Or even better: having the golden solution for this weird issue?
