Good Morning,
We have been experiencing an issue with the Start key on Windows server 2016 (Citrix XenDesktop): after clicking on the “Start” key the menu would not be displayed.
We found a possible fix to this issue, by running the powershell script below with admin priviledges:


Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$.InstallLocation -like "SystemApps"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

When this script is launched by system (and domain) admin users, the “start” key goes back to functioning as it should.


When ran by normal users it does not produce the same effect (even if the script is ran with admin priviledges on powershell).
Is there a way to make this work for normal users as well?
I’m eager to receive your feedback.
Regards,
Giovanni Marras
