Remove "per user" data for a single application RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an application that is made up of a dozen executables.  Long story short, I needed to add a registry exclusion for my users to make this application work.  However, anyone that experienced the problem before I updated the servers with the exclusion now has a reference to the registry key in their stored settings.

    Is there a way to remove just this key?  

    If not, what is the best way to allow an end user to remove the per-user data for a single application?  I thought about writing a script that just removed the App-V folder for that user, but I had troubles finding the exact folder to remove in the users App-V user store.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Use the SFTMIME command in the user's context: SFTMIME CLEAR APP:application

    Or look at App-V Client Diagnostic and Configuration tool (ACDC) for a self-service way of clearing application settings.

  • Not sure why I didn't think of that...

    I wrapped the command around a vbscript and it seems to work well.

    Thanks!
