LanSchool and VDI Environments

LanSchool and VDI Environments

Overview

LanSchool Classic currently does not support VDI Environments due to the numerous types of environments, however, documentation was provided by a customer who had successfully setup LanSchool Classic in their VDI Environment.

Other documentation provided by a customer is a login script. This script requires a CSV file that contains the machine name and desired channel.  It will then take this data at login and configure the student's display name and channel properly. You will need to rename the extension of the attached file to .vbs

These documentations are not supported but may assist you in setting up your LanSchool Classic VDI Environment.
