While working on a vDisk for Windows 2008R2 with XenApp 6.5 based on Citrix Provisioning Services I got a remark that people could see the Citrix PVS Target Tools icon in the system tray and this could be confusing for the end user as they are presented information that is useless to them.

During my latest (and greatest) project I got the request to add Google as default search provider to Internet Explorer. Luckily I was able to leverage RES Workspace Manager to add the search provider in Internet Explorer.
During one of the projects I’ve worked on we did a Citrix XenApp deployment with RES Automation Manager, as we were using building blocks the deployment was up and running in no time.

I was working on a new Citrix PVS image for one of my current projects and the test before running the P2PVS.exe were good, all my apps worked like they should so I prepped the server for the imaging (preparing antivirus, last PVS optimizations and a full pre-scan of my VM) and I ran P2PVS.
At the moment I’m bulding a new PVS/XA based environment with RES AM and RES WM in combination with APP-V 4.6 SP1 but when the App-V team sequenced the first application they received:App-V error 0A-0000E01E: An Unexpected error has occured. So I googled and found a support article but after changing the reg key on the client it still gave this error.
During the last couple of projects I did I noticed that Microsoft Lync would prevent my session to log off normally, either on a Citrix XenApp/XenDestop or normal fat client deployment. Somehow running Lync stopped the logoff process and I would the error “This program is preventing Windows from logging off”:
