Problem with user-file on Q: RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I just tried to sequence Wiziple PicPick and have problems with the program settings.

    PicPick save his settings in picpick.ini on Q:\PicPick.001.

    After a reboot the settings are back on standard.

    Is there a possibility save the selected settings to Q, or an other workaround?

     

    Regards,

  • Hey,

    I think I found the problem.

    The problem is when I clicking only on "Logoff" the application doesn't close correctly. But if I close the app manually it saves the settings, when I reopen the app the settings will be restored.
    All right to this step, but when I now logoff and login again the settings will be back on standard, thats because we use mandatory profiles. To prevent this, I setup the Q-Path of the app to the "AppSense User Personalization" system. This save now the settings, when the user logoff.

    But I need also uncheck "enforce security descriptors" and setup the *.ini as "user data" how znack and Aaron writes.

    Thanks for your advices.

  • Have you marked the file as user data in the sequencer. If the file is marked as user data, the user's PKG file will get a copy when the file is written to

  • Hello Aaron,

    thanks for your reply. I already tried this, and it doesn't help, still no savings.

    By the way, when I select "Overwrite" the AppV-Client overwrites the file again and again, and user-settings wouldn't be saved, isn't it?

  • Also make sure that you propperly close all instances of PicPick before you reboot the machine. To check if there is an issue, check the App-V Client Management Console (sftcmc.msc) right before you shut down the machine. The application should have the state "idle".

    If that's not the case it might be that App-V did not write back the modified .ini to the App-V User Configuration store.

    Are there any cleanup-processes in palce that clean may clean "%APPDATA%" folder or Mandatory Profiles?
