Updating MED-V 2.0
Updated: March 10, 2011
Applies To: Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization 2.0
Help secure your system by applying the appropriate security updates for Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) 2.0.
You can update MED-V interactively, by the end user, or silently by using an electronic software distribution system. Installation of the MED-V Host Agent upgrades the MED-V Host Agent and then updates the MED-V workspace if required. The MED-V Host Agent and Guest Agent keep in sync. If applications are running from the MED-V workspace while the MED-V Host Agent is being updated, a restart of the host computer is required to complete the update. If no applications are running, MED-V is restarted automatically and the upgrade is completed without a restart of the host computer.
If you are updating MED-V by using an electronic software distribution system, you can control the restart behavior. To do this, suppress the restart by typing REBOOT=”ReallySuppress” at the command prompt when installing MED-V_HostAgent_Setup.exe. Then, configure the electronic software distribution system to capture the 3010 return code (which signals that a restart is required) and perform the set restart behavior.
