That’s not what I said.  In the end you will have two profiles, one for XD and 
one for XA.  Because users shouldn’t be running the same app from multiple 
platforms you don’t need to worry managing settings in two different profiles.


Simply set a profile to \\server\XDProfiles\ <file:///\\server\XDProfiles\>  
and another to\\server\XAProfiles.  No variables are needed.

That's curious. The implication from your response would suggest that deploying 
XA with XD is not recommended. It's curious since I've been told the exact 

Installing all our applications onto the XD image is counter-intuitive and 
inefficient. And buying Appsense is simply not going to happen. 

Thanks for your replies.
