How to Install FSLogix Apps
I'm happy to introduce our first stand-alone how-to e-book on FSLogix Apps. As with all the e-books found on this site, everything is 100% step-by-step, soup to nuts! We will walk you from the start to the finish! All you need to do is follow along and have fun learning!
A New Approach to Per User Application Management
The FSLogix premise is simple: existing methodologies for delivering and deploying Windows® applications are based upon outmoded ideas and outdated technology. They believe there remains a need for a product that makes it simple for each user to have their Windows applications individually tailored for their device. When a user logs on they should see only the applications that they are licensed to use regardless of whether they are using cloud desktops, virtual desktops or traditional desktops.
FSLogix introduces a new way to control application availability by user. The administrator defines application policies and which users should have access to those applications. Once the policies are in place, applications that are on the system will only be available to the appropriate users. To the users that are not supposed to have access, all traces of the application disappear. Application files, application registry settings, uninstall information, file associations, run entries, etc., all simply disappear for the user. They are not simply “hidden”. It’s as if the application has been uninstalled. The per-user visibility always applies on any kind of system, for example: concurrent multi-user systems, serial multi-user systems, and single user systems.
