Redirected Start Menu for ShortCuts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Evening all,

    So I'm playing with App-V on a test part of the school network. It's been pretty good so far and I managed to get Office 2016 streaming to a machine earlier today. However - it seems AppV will not work with redirected start menus where all users access the same redirected start menu. I think this is how it read in the MS docs - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...tion-with-appv

    Unsupported scenarios for App-V folder redirection

    The following scenarios aren't supported by App-V:
    Configuring %LocalAppData% as a network drive.
    Redirecting the Start menu to a single folder for multiple users.
    If roaming AppData (%AppData%) is redirected to a network share that is not available, App-V applications will fail to launch, unless the unavailable network share has been enabled for Offline Files.
    So - how do people do it? It will work with roaming profiles but we don't use any pre-defined user profiles. Interestingly if we could get that to work, how do you get one icon to display in two different start menus? Our start menu structures are stored on a central file store.

    Hope that makes sense..... Can anyone advise?
