Hello, I am having a issue with Windows 10 1703 & UEM. I am testing using UEM file redirection without using writable volumes and am having the problem that default file association is being reset to nothing each time a user logs in.
I setup UEM following the blog post from - https://www.ivandemes.com/export-import-file-type-associations-fta-successfully-using-uem/
When using the logon task, default file association doesn't change. If I run the command manually, it works but the file association is lost on log off.
I am using the format of cmd /c \\server\uem\GetUserFTA.exe
We have a similar issue - we followed this route as well.
Can you check if the Defaults are set correctly at the second login?
Meaning: LogIn with a test user - logoff - re-login, now this script should work
There is no change from initial login and follow up attempts.
I confirmed that the UserFTA.config file is being created to AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows, however the SetUserFTA doesn't apply after next login. I am looking through the UEM logs and it isn't showing any errors.
I opened a ticket with VMware Support and they weren't able to find an issue with the setup either.
I think it is a "Timing Issue".
Try running the Logon task AFTER the profile import, as well as "Run Asynchronously"
I had to play around to get it to work.
Thanks for the reply John, I've been trying with those settings and still no luck.
Also tried testing this configuration with writable volumes and they are having the same problem.
I have found a workaround for this issue. I hope you'll find it usefull.
