VMware View VMs stuck on logoff

You may get into a situation where your View VMs do not log off correctly. Typically this happens because the VM is waiting for an application to close and is prompting for user interaction. This is a common issue.

This can be worked around by setting some registry keys in the HKCU hive. however this is quite cumbersome , so i have created a user GPO to do exactly this!

I created this adm template that can be imported into AD and pushed to your VDI users, it allows you to change the following settings:

AutoEndTasks:
Determines whether user processes end automatically when the user either logs off or shuts down

HungAppTimeout:
Specifies how long the system waits for user processes to end after the user clicks the End Task command button in Task Manager . If this threshold is exceeded, the End Taskdialog box appears, stating that the process did not respond.
