Install App-V admx: not visible RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I installed the ADMX template for App-V 5.0 according the Microsoft guide: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj684299.aspx but it doesn't show up. There is no App-V folder underneath Computer Configuration / Policies / Administrative Templates / System .

    Please advise.
    J.

  • Try copying the ADMX/ADML into you're central store which should be found in \\FQDN\SYSVOL\FQDN\policies\PolicyDefinitions. NOTE: The ADML should be copied into the language specific subfolder e.g. \\FQDN\SYSVOL\FQDN\policies\PolicyDefinitions\en-us

  • And %windir%\PolicyDefinitions\en-us\appv.adml?

    Have you closed and re-opened GMPC?

  • Yes it is. Note: I unzipped the file from https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj684299.aspx and copied it remotely to the DC or should I have extracted/ran the exe of template on DC itself?

  • Still App-V is not appearing in GPMC.

  • Are you opening GPMC on the same machine that you've installed the ADMX/ADML files to? That can be your local PC if it's domain joined.

  • What do you mean by that? I copied the MDOP_ADMX_Templates.exe to a network share, when I execute it, it extracts to that location.
    Even if I copy it locally, it extracts it to that local location (not to f.e. c:\windows\etc) so why would that matter? If it would, where should I extract it then?

    Here are the steps I went through which work, all on the same PC without involving any remote locations:

    1. Run MDOP_ADMX_Templates.exe
    2. Extract to C:\MDOP_ADMX_Templates
    3. Copy the contents of C:\MDOP_ADMX_Templates\Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack\App-V5.0SP3 to %windir%\PolicyDefinitions on the same machine that you are opening GPMC on
    4. Close GPMC if it is open
    5. Open GPMC
    6. Edit or create a new GPO that is linked to the OU that your target computer accounts are in and open it
    7. Navigate to Computer Configuration / Policies / Administrative Templates / System / App-V.

    %windir% is an environment variable that is usually C:\Windows, assuming you have a default install.

    If you aren't seeing the App-V policies then you haven't followed the Microsoft article and the policy files are not in the right location.

  • Tried that, not working, however I'm working on Windows 2012 R2 and "Administrative Templates entry" is showing:

    Administrative Templates: Policy definitions (ADXM files) retrieved from central store
