May 20th, the RES PowerFuse Administrative guide was released. This massive 312 page document has been in the works for quite a few months. It contains alot of good, solid technical information about how to deploy and configure all the components of RES PowerFuse, including the Desktop Sampler, the Workspace Extender, all sorts of interesting commandlines, registry settings etc.
Here are some of the sections I would like to highlight from the guide:
- Pages 109-128: Here you have a complete reference to all the .ini settings in the pwrmenu.ini file in the users homedirectory.
- Pages 185-195: All the secret sauce on Zero Profile Technology, that is how to use it. (sorry A.S., you’ll have to figure out to do ZPT on your own :-)
- Pages 200-205: Describes the exact order in which things happen inside PowerFuse during login, session refresh and logout. This is valuable information, folks!
- Pages 285-297: Yes! Finaly a complete and official guide to the PowerFuse registry settings. As my old article on RESGuru.com hasn’t been updated for quite a while time, this is definatly a must-read!
The Admin Guide can be downloaded from the RES Software portal using this link. Note that a login is NOT required for this file.

Straight off the press: Recently RES Software’s founder and CTO – Mr. Bob Janssen – has written some quite interesting articles for the medias. One article posted over at ZD Net, describe in detail what the Desktop Transformation concept is all about. Another article was posted last month in Network Security magazine, where the topic was VDI and security.
I would urge you to read thease articles, as they give a unique perspective on what RES Software does. As a prospective enduser it may help you understand the value proposition of RES better. As an integrator you are likely to find many good talkingpoints within these articles.
The Desktop Transformation article on ZDnet can be found here.
The article regarding VDI and security can be found here (note you need to purchase the article online. Last time I looked, it was £31.50, but it’s well worth it.)
