Currently we have a WVD environment with Windows 10 Multi Session combined with FSLogix.

We are running into issues when trying to use the apps from the Store.

 

This is what we are currently trying:

  1. The user opens the Store and installs an app.
  2. The app appears to be installed and usable.
  3. Once the user has signed out and has logged in again, the app has disappeared.

When we are trying this under the administrator, which is also excluded from using FSLogix profiling, it appears to keep the app installed, even after signing off and logging back in. This isn't a solution however, since the app is then only installed for the administrator.

 

It is still a bit unclear to us whether or not the Store apps are supported on WVD and if it is possible to distribute an app to all users (unlike what we are trying now under the specific user).

 

Is there any documentation on this subject perhaps?

@tomdw did you make any progress on this? We are experiencing exactly the same behaviour, very frustrating. 

 

I am making the assumption that by having FSLogix enabled the filter driver is kicking in and 'potentially' invoking some future MSIX AppAttach functionality and making the C:\program files\windowsapps folder non-persistent.

 

Would be great to hear if you overcome the issue. We have tried all recent variants of the FSLogix agent.
