    Note

    App-V is supported when using UPD only when the entire profile is stored on the user profile disk.

    App-V packages are not supported when using UPD with selected folders stored in the user profile disk. The Copy on Write driver does not handle UPD selected folders.

    Capturing changes to the locations, which constitute the user integrations, prior to session logoff.

    ---

    We use ”selected folder” in our UPD settings.

    I created a test collection – containing the entire profile – and it seems to be working.

    Is it possible to run with the entire profile store in the UPD – and still use folder redirection? (is it recommended?)

  • Can you elaborate what you mean by "user profile disk"?  Where exactly are you trying to write to that it can't?

    I have some old legacy packages - they need to write to the VFS.

    When trying to create a folder or file inside the virtual env, (cmd.exe for test) - "Wrong parameter" is returned. (when using UPD)

    When using a local profile - i'm able to create the folder or file in the virtual env.
