Are you using Snagit in a virtual desktop environment? Let us know! We want to make your life easier and in order to do so, we will need to know a bit more about your particular environments.

We have seen some problems with Snagit when using virtual desktop technologies, specifically....

•Where to place the \Datastore folder (automatically stored files folder)
•Where configuration files get stored
•Managing Snagit Outputs
•Working with the Snagit Printer
•Published Desktop vs Published Application
•Interacting with the TechSmith Deployment Tool (toolkit)

While we have addressed a few of the issues listed above, we would love to hear if you are still experiencing them or if you are experiencing virtual desktop-related issues not listed here.

I use it in windows 10 and I was thinking that it record video from one desktop while I do my stuff from another desktop. But unfortunately that wasn't the case. While this feature is very helpful, can you add this feature to next version?

Hossein,

Can you describe a little more of what you're wanting to see as a new feature? It sounds like you are wanting to record a 2nd computer, through an RDP session, from the system you have SnagIt installed.

We are using SnagIt on Windows 10 VMWare Instant Clones with UEM. We are having issues with captures not being saved. I believe I need some assistance with where to store the \Datastore file so it saves previous captures.
