View 4.5 Post-Synchronization Script not running?

Summary:

I have a post synchronization and power-off script that clears some McAfee reg keys, starts App-V services, and other misc. stuff (workaround from 4.0.1) that I’ve ported over to 4.5.  Essentially, I noticed when logging into my View 4.5 systems, this script was not being run for some reason.  Below is what I was seeing in my View pool settings:

ViewPostSyncGuestCustom

Notice the Yen symbols?  This likely happened when I recreated these pools and I was typing in “Romaji” instead of “US” on my Mac.  The Yen symbol is the equivalent of backslash(‘\’) on the keyboard and translates fine for most applications, not for View 4.5 apparently though.  This is likely a rare occurrence in which my Japa-cheesyness isn’t so cool.

Resolution:

Replace the Yen symbol w/ a good ‘ol US backslash(‘\’) as picture below:

ViewPostSyncGuestCustomAfter

The good news is that after making this change any new VM’s that spin-up will run the batch files correctly.
