Deploying UE-V 2.0
Updated: December 2, 2013
Applies To: User Experience Virtualization 2.0
There are a number of different deployment configurations that Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) 2.0 supports. This section includes general information and step-by-step procedures to help you successfully perform the tasks that you must complete at different stages of your deployment.
Deployment information for UE-V 2.0
A UE-V deployment requires a settings storage location on a network share and a UE-V Agent that is installed on every computer that synchronizes settings. The UE-V Group Policy templates can be used to manage UE-V settings. The following topics describe how to deploy these features.
Deploying the Settings Storage Location for UE-V 2.0
All UE-V deployments require a settings storage location where the settings packages that contain the synchronized setting values are located.
Deploying the UE-V 2.0 Agent
To synchronize settings by using UE-V, a computer must have the UE-V Agent installed and running.
Installing the UE-V 2.0 Group Policy ADMX Templates
You can use Group Policy to preconfigure UE-V settings before you deploy the UE-V Agent and the standard UE-V configuration.
Upgrading to UE-V 2.0
Procedures for upgrading from previous versions of UE-V to UE-V 2.0.

Deployment information for custom template deployment
If you plan to create custom settings location templates for applications other than the Microsoft applications that are included in UE-V, such as line-of-business applications, you can deploy a settings template catalog. You must install the UE-V Generator to create those templates. For more information, see Planning for Custom Template Deployment for Desktop Applications in UE-V 2.0.
Installing the UE-V 2.0 Generator
Use the UE-V Generator to create, edit, and validate custom settings location templates that help synchronize settings of applications other than the default applications.
Deploying the Settings Template Catalog for UE-V 2.0
If you must deploy custom settings location templates to support applications other than the default applications in the UE-V Agent, you must configure a settings template catalog to store them.
Deploying Settings Location Templates for UE-V 2.0
If you must synchronize applications other than the default applications in the UE-V Agent, you can distribute the custom setting location templates that are created by using the UE-V Generator to the UE-V settings template catalog.
Note The deployment of custom templates requires a settings template catalog. The default Microsoft application templates are deployed by using the UE-V Agent.
