How to use Problem Steps Recorder

leave a comment »

From App-V Team Blog.

“On Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, there is a great troubleshooting tool called the Problem Steps Recorder (PSR). The PSR allows screenshots and details of actions to be automatically recorded and saved in a .MHT file that is automatically zipped. A user can send this file to Microsoft Support to provide an accurate account of steps to reproduce and issue. There is a short video on TechNet that gives a demonstration of the Problem steps recorder.

We can appropriate this tool and turn it into a Sequencing Steps Recorder to document “recipes” for sequencing applications. Other App-V blog articles have demonstrated how to use video to document sequencing. The Problem Steps Recorder just provides another alternative, especially for those users that like to read from a printout.

The PSR can be easily be found on Windows 7 or Server 2008 just by clicking on the Windows Logo and typing “steps” ,“record”, or “PSR.exe” in the search bar”

The day has come; Hyper-V Dynamic Memory will be added in W2008 R2 SP1. This is a new feature that many Hyper-V Admins were screaming about, thank you Microsoft 🙂

But that’s not the end of the good news…:)
According with Microsoft press release issued today, a bunch of new statements, including features, licensing and requirements changes are available. Here are some of them:

  • New VDI promotions
  • Improved licensing model for virtual Windows desktop
  • Windows XP Mode no longer requires hardware virtualization technology
  • Hyper-V Dynamic Memory
  • Microsoft RemoteFX
  • New technology agreement with Citrix Systems

In today’s webcast, Microsoft and Citrix executives, analysts, and customers will discuss today’s news and Microsoft’s desktop-to-datacenter virtualization strategy. Today’s webcast also marks the beginning of a 100-city, worldwide series of events to educate customers on the comprehensive portfolio of desktop and datacenter virtualization solutions provided by Microsoft and its partners, including Citrix. To join the dialogue, Twitter users can tweet their comments and questions to #MSVirt.”
