VMware View Windows 7 Desktop Hanging on Shutdown: Doesn’t Close Apps

Are you tired of opening the vSphere console on a desktop that wouldn’t be re-composed only to find this?

Waiting for background programs to close. Force log off.



Me too. These registry keys will force the closing of open applications. I had to post this just so I would have quick reference to it in the future. Import these registry keys into your golden image and say goodbye to desktops that won’t shut down. When I say shut down you say HOW FAST. That’s right.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]
