Disable DirectFlex

NOTE: Don't enable this setting unless you need this specific functionality.

When this setting is enabled, DirectFlex is disabled. This setting can be used to migrate VMware Persona Management to VMware User Environment Manager as described in the KB article at https://kb.vmware.com/kb/2118056.

There are two options for this setting:

- 'Disable DirectFlex': imports and exports for DirectFlex-enabled applications are not performed.

- 'Disable DirectFlex and process DirectFlex config files during logon and logoff': imports and exports for DirectFlex-enabled applications are performed during logon and logoff, respectively.

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2
