When you run the Desktop Scan Wizard, there are several best practices to follow for optimal results:
Run the desktop scan on the oldest operating system version available. For example, if users use both Windows XP and Windows 7, you should run the desktop scan on the Windows XP machine.
However, for Microsoft Office. For the Microsoft Office suite, you should run the scan from the operating system where it is intended to be used.
32-bit (x86) applications do not show up in the Recipes list when they are installed on a 64-bit (x64) operating system.
When you scan LibreOffice or OpenOffice, you should scan the version that includes Java. This allows the packaged application to function on machines that do not have Java installed as well as on machines that do. It is also possible that the desktop scan cannot find an installation of LibreOffice or OpenOffice that does not include Java.
Applications that are packaged with the desktop scan might retain settings from the local machine used during the packaging process.
Adobe Creative Suite (all versions) do not scan correctly if you scan it from Windows Vista. Use Windows XP or Windows 7 for a desktop scan of Adobe Creative Suite.
When you use the desktop scan with browsers, ensure that any plug-ins that are installed outside the browser, such as Windows Media Player, are already installed when the scan is run. This is important because some plug-ins are installed through the msiexec.exe process, and are not recognized within the virtualized browser. Plug-ins that are installed from within the browser, such as Adobe Flash, do not have this problem.
