MED-V 1.0: Locations where Key Client Configuration is Stored


Very little MED-V client configuration is stored in the registry. What is stored is found under this key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Kidaro

Registry values include:

  • DesktopShortcut: A REG_SZ value that determines if the client will auto place a desktop shortcut.
  • PrestagedImagesPath: A REG_SZ value that determines the path to CKM images that have been predeployed.
  • StartAutomatically: A REG_SZ value that determines if the client starts at logon.

Most of the other information is stored here:

%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\MED-V\Profile\ProfileInfo.XML

This is the MED-V Client Profile. The client profile is where the information set during the installation is stored. This serves as a template for the actual Windows user running the client. The user working copy is always stored in the %LOCALAPPDATA%\MED-V\Profile directory.

 If you were to manually modify the MED-V server, you will want to modify <ServerAddress>

<Kidaro>
    <ServerAddress type="System.String">http://localhost:80</ServerAddress>
    <ImageDistributionEnabled type="System.Boolean">True</ImageDistributionEnabled>
    <ConfigurationFolder type="System.String">C:\ProgramData\MED-V\Local\Config</ConfigurationFolder>
    <VmsFolder type="System.String">C:\MED-V Images\</VmsFolder>
    <ClientCertificateThumbprint type="System.String">
    </ClientCertificateThumbprint>
    <ClientId type="System.String">
    </ClientId>
    <KidaroDomain type="System.String">
    </KidaroDomain>
    <DataFolder type="System.String">C:\ProgramData\MED-V</DataFolder>
</Kidaro>
