Speed up the launch of the XenDesktop Delivery Services Console (DSC)

Posted on September 2nd, 2010

Sometimes the Delivery Services Console takes a long time to launch. This is due to a .NET delay in the authenticode signature component as described in Microsoft Article Q936707.

The following config file can be added to speed up the lauch of the Delivery Services Console.

  • mmc.exe.config

Ensure the contents of the file contain the following:

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?>
<configuration>
<runtime>
<generatePublisherEvidence enabled=”false” />
</runtime>
</configuration>

Copy this file to the following locations:

  • 32-bit server – c:\windows\system32
  • 64-bit server – c:\windows\sysWOW64
  • Digg
  • StumbleUpon
  • del.icio.us
  • Facebook
  • Yahoo! Buzz
  • Twitter

    Hi Richard,

    is this applicable for Xendesktop 5 as well? while launching Desktop studio.

    Regards,
    Sandy

    I believe so. I have tested before on Appsense consoles and it certainly speeds them up. Although in those cases I have edited the appsense console “.config” file to add the relevant fields.

    The following adjustments can be made if Desktop Studio will start slowly.

    Within the Internet Explorer you can uncheck the option “Check for publisher’s certificate revocation”
    (accessible via: Tools – Internet Options – Tab Advanced – Item Security)

    After adjustment Desktop Studio (MMC) will be started immediately. Without adjustment it may take some time before Desktop Studio (MMC) is started.
