    Microsoft Edge and Persona Management issues

    serinfbco Novice

      We are struggling with Microsoft modern apps and Persona Management. We get working all what we need but Microsoft Edge is a beast...


      If the folder "AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe" is roam with PM, Edge open and close immediately. Something seems to prevent Edge to be modified by an external process. The copy procedure from Persona share to user profile at login time seems to break something.


      Have you figure out how to use Edge with PM?


      VMware Horizon 7.4

      Windows 10 Build 1709

          This is known issue with Windows 10 1709.

          See Horizon 7.5 Release Notes.


          "When you log into a VM configured with Persona Management for the second time, the Microsoft Edge browser crashes and an error message that states the OneDrive application has never been used appears. Additionally, the files and folders cannot be replicated properly. This happens only with Windows 10 build 1709 November 2017 update.

          Workaround: Disable the Persona Management setting Roam Local Settings Folders. When you disable this setting, the Microsoft Edge browser works properly but the OneDrive application is only available when you log in for the first time."

            Finally we end up by enabling "Roam Local Settings Folders" because we need to keep some files in the "appdata\Local" folder. But in the same time this file needs to be excluded from roaming: "AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\UsrClass.dat".


            This way we keep the necessary files and Edge and others modern apps works without personalization.


            Thanks for helping!
