Built in App-V client causes slow File Explorer in Windows 10 1709 RRS feed

  • Question

  • My customer is rolling out/upgrading to Windows 10 1709 and is experiencing a significantly long delay when launching the File Explorer. It can take between 25 s to 2 min until the File Explorer is launching.

    Windows Performance Analyzer is showing that there is a specific App-V dll file that is locking the resources and seems to be causing the delay:

    I disabled the App-V client in msconfig. Suddenly the problem disappeared. The file explorer took 1-2 s to open instead!

    However, this is not a solution for the customer because of their heavy usage of App-V applications.

    Has anyone experienced this issue? Any known solution?
