I made a little progress on this so I thought I would share.
Application Templates have nothing to do with the Applications you already have configured in UEM. UEM has preconfigured templates for some apps and you can see which ones they are by creating a new config file and choose Use an Application Template. UEM includes template for for Office 2013 and specifically includes Visio and Project.
Having said that, you do not appear to be able to use the UEM profiler to profile any app that there is a template for. If I wanted to change setting in Visio for example.the only way I see to do that is to use the template, and add those settings on the predefined settings tab. I dont appear to be able to profile it and capture all the intial config settings that it does. Every time a new user runs the app, they will have to wait for it to configure itself. I dont see any way around this.
You are correct, applications that have build-in templates cannot be profiled.
Be you don't need to, because the templates capture all the personalization already.
If you still want to change the template to capture more settings, you can use the UEM Management Console to 'expand' the template and see the content of the template.
If you just want to push application settings to the users for Visio, you can do this without the profiler:
1. Create a Config File in the UEM Management console using the Visio template
2. Login as a test user and start Visio and configure Visio as it should be for all your users.
3. Logoff the test user.
4. In the UEM Management Console go to the pre-defined settings tab for the Visio config file and click 'Add'
5. use the 'Install' button and browse to the UEM archive (.ZIP file) of the test user that contains the Visio settings.
Kind regards, Pim.
No, not quite Voila,
I have the exact same issue and when I go to add Project and Visio it is populating the tree but just isn't right
See below; Visio is added, but why isn't it getting the correct icon, and also there is normally a load of green notes in the Import/Export Window but it's blank. It seems to be working but why doesn't it look right?
If you use the build-in templates, the import/export section is always empty.
You can use the 'Manage' button to expand the template and see the locations that are manged by the template.
The icon is not needed, it's just eye candy in the management console
See the attached screenshot.

By the way, if you want to use the UEM Application Profiler for Visio, or for any other application that is blacklisted, check this KB to add a whitelist:
Typically you don't need this, because the provided templates are optimized and provide the best results.
But if you really want to, the KB above will help you.
