ThinApp Internet Explorer 8 Redirection Issue ThinDirect.txt <-> ThinDirect.adm

Hi,

I have a problem with redirection a virtual Internet Explorer 8 back to native Internet Explorer 9 (Windows 7 x64).

I tried the two available methods of deploying ThinDirect.txt (via .txt and GPO), however only the deployment via .txt is able to redirect back to the native browser.

Example:

Virtual IE 8 captured with ThinApp 4.7.3 used in both methods:

Method 1:

Implement ThinDirect.txt in project directory with one url. (http://www.vmware.com)

Build

Redirect from native to virtual -> works!

Redirect from virtual to native, when leaving (http://www.vmware.com) -> works!

Method 2:

Delete ThinDirect.txt from the project directory

Build

Delete sandbox

Redirect from native to virtual -> works!

Redirect from virtual to native, when leaving (http://www.vmware.com) -> virtual browser stays open and is not redirecting back to the native browser.

Since deployment over GPO is much more easier I prefer this deployment method for ThinDirect.txt. e.g. easy editing of additional URLs without rebuilding the whole virtual IE.

Is this a known issue? Has anybody come across this?

Regards
