Upgrade from Workspace Environment Manager 4.1 to 4.2 is now Complete.  4.2 release brings the following benefits

  • Workspace Environment Management 4.2 now supports all versions of Citrix Profile Management up to v5.6

Fixes the following Issues/Known Issues

  • File Association actions cannot be processed by the Agent Host on Windows 8, 8.1, Server 2012, Server 2012 R2, and Server 2016 due to registry access issues.

[#WEM-15]

  • The Agent Host waits about 5 minutes before starting if Workspace Environment Management is installed on Windows version 8, 8.1, 10, Server 2012, Server 2012 R2, or Server 2016 (all branches and builds) and a language pack is installed.

[#WEM-17]

  • On Windows Server 2012 R2, if Adobe Acrobat Reader is installed it prevents Workspace Environment Management associating files of type .PDF with other PDF reader applications. Users are forced to manually select the PDF reader application to use each time they open a PDF.
