Checklist for Evaluating Line-of-Business Applications for UE-V 2.0

Updated: December 2, 2013

Applies To: User Experience Virtualization 2.0

To evaluate which line-of-business applications should be included in your Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) 2.0 deployment by creating a desktop applications custom settings location template or by adding the app to the Windows 8 app allow list, consider the following:


Checklist box

Does this application contain settings that the user can customize?

Checklist box

Is it important for the user that these settings are synchronized?

Checklist box

Are these user settings already managed by an application management or settings policy solution? UE-V applies application settings at application startup and Windows settings at logon, unlock, or remote connect events. If you use UE-V with other settings sharing solutions, users might experience inconsistency across synchronized settings.

Checklist box

Are the application settings specific to the computer? Application preferences and customizations that are associated with hardware or specific computer configurations do not consistently synchronize across sessions and can cause a poor application experience.

Checklist box

Does the application store settings in the Program Files directory or in the file directory that is located in the Users\[User name]\AppData\LocalLow directory? Application data that is stored in either of these locations usually should not synchronize with the user, because this data is specific to the computer or because the data is too large to synchronize.

Checklist box

Does the application store any settings in a file that contains other application data that should not synchronize? UE-V synchronizes files as a single unit. If settings are stored in files that include application data other than settings, then synchronizing this additional data can cause a poor application experience.

Checklist box

How large are the files that contain the settings? The performance of the settings synchronization can be affected by large files. Including large files can affect the performance of settings synchronization.
