App-V 5: Catalog\Packages in Windows Profile RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    one question about the App-V 5 windows user profile. 

    I have some data in

    AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AppV\Client\Catalog\Packages\IDs\UserDeploymentConfiguration.xml and UserManifest.xml.

    for every application. What are this files for? This two files (per application) are blowing up my user profiles. Do I need this files? Can I exclude them from the roaming profile?

  • Maybe take a look at this:


    That's being cached. How large are the files that they are blowing up the user profile?

  • If you were to manage the user profile better with a solution such as UE-V, you could capture and roam just the application preferences that matter and discard the rest.

  • Hi,
    I have sequenced 2 applications (office 2003 and one company internal application). At the moment the files of this two packages has a size of 8 MB.
    @Aaron: In knew, that this answer will come :)
    UE-V is relative new, and we will wait some time. We are using Citrix Profile Management, it's not this bad :), App-V 5 brings so much improvements, that we want to go directly to the new technology :)

    Anyone knows, if I can exclude the path out of the roaming profiles?

  • Hello,

    I suggest you test if excluding those will impact anything, but most likely they were placed by Microsoft in a location that would roam for a reason.
