InstallAppXPackages not working (Microsoft Store, MSEdge Apps, AppX)

Copper Contributor

Running FSLogix version:

2210 hotfix 3 (2.9.8784.63912)


The problem:

Microsoft Edge "Apps" and apps installed through Microsoft Store (such as "TypeClipboard") do not persist after logoff on dedicated machines (assigned user always logs into same machine).


User must reinstall Microsoft Edge "Apps" and apps from Microsoft Store every time they sign-in with a new Windows session.

Attempted solution #1:


The outcome of attempted solution:

Seems to be 100% ineffective, problem remains unresolved. I do confirm the `AppData\Roaming\FSLogix\AppxPackages.xml` file is being correctly written within the Profile Container.

Attempted solution #2:

Exclude `AppData\Local\Packages` with Copy=0

Attempted solution #3:

Exclude `AppData\Local\Packages` with Copy=3

Outcome of attempted solutions 2 and 3:

Ineffective, problem remains unresolved. Solutions 2 and 3 reversed. Solution 1 still in effect at time of writing.




Machines OS:

Windows 10 22H2

ADMX configuration is as follows:

  • Logging\Log Keeping Period = 3
  • Profile Containers\Container and Directory Naming\Flip Flop Profile Directory Name = 1
  • Profile Containers\Container and Directory Naming\Volume Type = VHDX
  • Profile Containers\Enabled = 1
  • Profile Containers\Install Appx Packages = 1
  • Profile Containers\Is Dynamic = 1
  • Profile Containers\Locked Retry Count = 3
  • Profile Containers\Locked Retry Interval = 15
  • Profile Containers\Reattach Count = 3
  • Profile Containers\Reattach Interval = 15
  • Profile Containers\Size In MBs = 76800 # 75 GB
  • Profile Containers\VHD Locations = \\contoso.lan\FSLData # DFS share used
  • Profile Containers\Roam Identity = 1 # Workaround for Microsoft 365 re-auth issue, environment lacks true SSO configuration
  • Profile Containers\Keep Local Directory (after logoff) = 1 # Applicable to assigned dedicated machines only
  • Profile Containers\Redirection XML Source Folder = \\contoso.lan\FSLCfgDedi # Applicable to assigned dedicated machines only
  • Profile Containers\Reboot On User Logoff = Reboot only on any FSLogix Profile logoff (3) # Applied only to test machine for time savings during troubleshooting

Redirection XML being used here:




<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<FrxProfileFolderRedirection ExcludeCommonFolders="33">
		<Exclude Copy="0">AppData\Local\Packages\MSTeams_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Microsoft\MSTeams\Logs</Exclude>
		<Exclude Copy="0">AppData\Local\Packages\MSTeams_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Microsoft\MSTeams\PerfLogs</Exclude>
		<Exclude Copy="0">AppData\Local\Packages\MSTeams_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Microsoft\MSTeams\EBWebView\WV2Profile_tfw\WebStorage</Exclude>
		<Exclude Copy="0">AppData\Local\Publishers\8wekyb3d8bbwe\TeamsSharedConfig\meeting-addin</Exclude>





Things that DO work:

  • Profile Container in general (creates in SMB repo if not exists, mounts, stores user data, dismounts on logoff)
  • Persistence of Microsoft 365 authentication and user customizations (OneDrive, new MSTeams, Office apps, Outlook)
  • Persistence of general application customizations
  • Persistence of pinned Taskbar and Start Menu items
  • Redirection XML setting ExcludeCommonFolders=33
  • Redirection XML excludes and includes


Writing this post feels like preaching to the choir / beating a horse vibe after having done a lot of Googling on this.
