FSLogix and APP-V

Hello FSLogix Nation,


Phil here from the FSLogix and APP-V team.


I wanted to share the following with you after we had a few customers contact Micrsoft when using FSLogix and APP-V.


If you are using APP-V with FSlogix then you may have encountered some issues when launching APP-V applications.


You also may have encountered White Icons being displayed on the desktop or Start Menu.


You may also want to ensure that you roam the COW to every machine on logon for a number of APP-V applications. 


Well to address the above you need to ensure that you have a FSLogix Redirections.xml configured with the following entries:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<FrxProfileFolderRedirection ExcludeCommonFolders="0">


    <Exclude Copy="0">AppData\Local\Microsoft\Appv\Client</Exclude>



<Include Copy="3">AppData\Local\Microsoft\AppV\Client\VFS</Include>




Remember: When we use an exclude we may want to use an include of the subfolder whose parent folder we are excluding

Includes are only necessary when the folder is in the exclude folder or further down the path of the exclude folder.


Also as the Integration points get broken on logoff with FSlogix (as we remove the whole users profile), you should also have this APP-V setting configured:



  • Configure in the Registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ AppV \ Client \ Integration.
  • Create the DWORD value PreserveUserIntegrationsOnLogin with a value of 1.
  • Restart the App-V client service or restart the computer running the App-V Client.

Hope the above helps!


Until next time.......
