You can configure a virtual software layer to start (activate) automatically when a client computer starts. You can also activate a layer from a desktop shortcut.
See Activating a virtual software layer using a desktop shortcut.
If you don't configure a layer to start automatically and if the user cannot manually activate it, the user cannot access it.
You can also use the SVSCMD executable file with the AUTOACTIVATE parameter to set a layer to start automatically.
See SVSCMD command-line parameters .
To configure a layer to start automatically
Start the SWV Admin tool.
Click Start > All Programs > Symantec > Workspace > Virtualization > Symantec Workspace Virtualization Admin.
In the SWV Admin tool, right-click a layer, and then click Activate On System Startup.
If a check mark appears next to the option, it is enabled.
