A Flex configuration file is a configuration file containing content specific for User Environment Manager. Flex configuration files are created and managed from the Management Console.

Each application has a separate Flex configuration file that contains the locations of the settings that are managed with User Environment Manager. You can either create a custom configuration file, use Windows Common Settings, or use an application template.

With a custom configuration file, you manually define the settings to manage for an application.

Windows Common Settings and application templates are Flex configuration definitions for commonly used Windows settings and applications.

You can also create, upload, and download Flex configuration files for common applications from the VMware community. For more information, see https://communities.vmware.com/community/vmtn/user-environment-manager/content?filterID=contentstatus[published]~objecttype~objecttype[document].
