How is a "gold image" (operating system plus applications) created for Windows Virtual Desktop? What tools are needed? Can any applications be used?

I'll bump this. Would be great to see a facility similar to something like FRA.ME where you build the template in isolation and one you are happy you can deploy to the pool.

Hello Kurt, welcome back! Any existing tool to create a golden image can be used, either: - Customize on-premises and upload into Azure to deploy a hostpool or - Spin up a VM in Azure, customize and use that to further deploy a hostpool We are also looking into integrating with the (relatively) new service called Azure VM Image Builder. Thanks, Pieter
