User uninstalls a deployed application on a computer and application is unavailable to the user on every computer

Updated: March 2, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

A user with a roaming user profile uninstalls a deployed application on his or her computer, and the user can no longer access that application when the user roams to another computer.

Cause

If the user has a roaming user profile and the user uninstalled the application on another computer using Add or Remove Programs, the application will be unavailable to that user on every computer (with the possible exception of computers where loopback processing rules apply). For more information about roaming user profiles, see “Using roaming user profiles” in Help and Support Center for Windows Server 2003.

Solution

If the application was deployed with the Uninstall this application when it falls out of the scope of management option, verify that the computer and user are still in the necessary security groups and that the GPO is still linked to a site, domain, or OU that the user or computer is in.
