Starting MSIX and AppX packages with PowerShell from the command line

MSIX_ZOOM

Microsoft Store applications (or Modern Applications) have now become standard on the desktop. Many users don't want to limit themselves any more and so the calculator on the terminal server should look exactly like the calculator on their own Windows 10 desktop. Sometimes you want to use your own "launcher" for an application. For example to start a script with the start of the application to import registry keys or connect network drives.For Microsoft Store applications (or Modern Applications) have now become standard on the desktop.

SQL Server Management Studio 18.5 (SSMS) App-V Recipe

App_V_Block_2020

The old recipe for SSMS 17.x was a nice success for me with about 1000 hits. Especially the comments were enlightening. The licensing problem could be solved with a simple registration key. With 18.5 there is nothing more to do here.

Recipe: Virtualize Edge with App-V

edge

Microsoft released a new Edge Browser based on the Google Engine Chromium a few weeks ago. This will be installed over an existing installation, but can also be installed on server systems that did not have an Edge Browser before. It is interesting that this Edge can be installed without problems on older systems like Server 2012 R2 or Windows 8.1. Nice is that the new Edge-Browser can be virtualized easily with App-V. We have been using an App-V variant of the application since the release and have had no problems with it so far.

Note: The document Virtualizing Edge with App-V is especially thanks to Thorsten @endi24. Thanks for the support! Furthermore I thank @bsplittg for testing the package.

The package works on current and on all older Microsoft operating systems when created with a classic (not ADK) sequencer (App-V 5.1). The Edge App-V package can work parallel to an existing Edge. An App-V Edge browser has its own settings, if you like. For example, your own homepage or another search engine. All this is only valid for Windows systems. Because the new Edge-Browser is also available for MacOS!

App-V Link Cleanup Script

Grid-und-Blitz2_Gross_b

Again and again we had to find out that sometimes App-V shortcuts in the user profile or even globally on the back. This can happen for various reasons. In particular, after a missing unpublishing for a user even if the package no longer exists. For nonpersistent VDI or Terminal Server this is no problem in the global context under C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs, because the systems are always in their original state after a reboot.For user profiles, however, this is a problem.
Since I have a little more time right now, I finally get to publish the script I created a long time ago for this problem.

OTPEdit a management tool for One Time Passwords

QRCode_3d

With Citrix an ADC (Netscaler) there is the possibility from version 12 on for a Native One-Time-Password (OTP) integration with an Authenticator App (Google, Microsoft etc.) for two-factor authentication. The authenticator delivers a number as a second factor. The respective device (mobile phone with app) must can be registered for a user beforehand. Information on the OTP is stored in the user account of the respective user. The management of users and equipment is not always easy. Actually, with a GUI this can only be Users themselves on the Citrix Gateway. Therefore we have developed a tool for a central Management.

In this blog you will find the description of the tool, the tool itself and more Backgrounds.
