If an AppV application has been deployed, you may wonder “what has been deployed exactly?” Because the application is virtualized nothing of that application can be found in the file system and registry, unless…

unless you add the following two Process Actions in the Session Event “Launch Application”:

  • Process Action starting regedt32.exe.
  • Process Action starting notepad.exe

When the user starts the application by clicking the Scense Shortcut, regedit.exe and notepad.exe will be launched also. Because these two are launched within the AppV bubble regedit.exe will show the registry including the AppV application. Notepad.exe will give you the opportunity to explore the filesystem including the files regarding the application.
