Yesterday I ran into a problem that the desktop shortcut positions were not saved between logons. The environment consists of Windows7 x64 and hybrid profiles (that is built using a mandatory profile and zero profile technology which is available in RES Workspace Manager 2011).

After playing around with several beta’s of vmware workstation 7, I decided to upgrade from 6.5 to 7.0 the minute it became available. Luckily enough vmware provided all beta testers with a discount code for 25% so that helped a little bit :-)…
