App-v client tip – unable to run PS scripts without admin privileges?

Just noticed this on the test VDI was working as quite a lot of app-v sequences have dependencies on external powershell scripts.

Noticed on migrating these sequences to Windows 10 had issues with running App-v apps which included sequences that had external powershell scripts that were being called wouldn’t work unless I logged on with a user with administrator privileges. To fix package scripts needs to be enabled.

To enable package scripts you can do one of the following;

powershell command Set-AppvClientConfiguration -EnablePackageScripts 1

or

change the reg key value to 1 (hex) for HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\AppV\Client\Scripting\EnablePackageScripts

Needless to say above can add the above key as a  group policy preference.

Citrix tip: Need to relay a maintenance message to your storefront users?

Came across this recently when I had to post up a message to users’ stating some maintenance activity will be occurring over the weekend. Found a tool called Storefront messaging – will see it located near the end of the blog post below

https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2015/07/15/storefront-3-0-message-customization/

Article is a little old so if you are using Storefront 3.5 definitely need to vet it (mind you, worth vetting if on 3.0 regardless).

 

Quick and dirty citrix tip: how to hide Desktop Viewer toolbar

Oftentimes be on a screenshare using webex and the desktop toolbar would “get in the way” at the top. As I don’t need it nearly all the time simplest (but it is a dirty method) approach I took to removing was simply to rename its exe CDViewer.exe – located under c:\program files (x86)\citrix

Does the job 🙂
