Microsoft Excel add-in doesn't function correctly in an Ivanti Workspace Control session

Version 1

    Problem

    Some add-ins for Microsoft Excel don't function correctly in an Ivanti Workspace Control session as they do in a default Microsoft Windows session.

    E.g. An additional sheet is being opened at the execution of the add-in.

     

     

    Solution

    Add the following key to the registry:

     

    [32-bit:]
    Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RES\Workspace Manager
    Value:  AllowExcelMinimized
    Type: REG_SZ
    Data: yes

     

    [64-bit:]
    Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\RES\Workspace Manager
    Value:  AllowExcelMinimized
    Type: REG_SZ
    Data: yes

     

    Note:
    This registry key can also be set on HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
