Various ADM Template to control Microsoft Application Virtualization Clients by Group Policy Objects (GPOs) | June 16, 2010


This article has been superseeded by https://kirxblog.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/app-v-client-configuration-with-admx-template/

The old version is:

Microsoft’s Application Virtualization Client 4.5 and 4.6 settings can be controlled by using Group Policy Objects in conjunction with ADM files. Microsoft made an ADM template available that covers parts of the relevant settings. Login Consultant’s Ruben Koene developed an add-on ADM Template that allows configuring relevant settings not covered by Microsoft’s ADM.

Together, both the Microsoft’s and Login Consultant’s ADM Templates make up a complete solution to fully control App-V Client Settings.

The following tables describe various App-V client settings and their partitioning into both ADMs.

Please note that the value descriptions do not fully reflect the actual Registry value names. Also, table segmentation does not necessarily reflect Registry’s segmentation into keys and subkeys.
