Possible Resolution(s): 

Windows Embedded is NOT supported operating system to be in use with ProfileUnity but it is possible to use ProfileUnity with limited functionality.

  • Application Restrictions - This module blocks user from opening special applications.
  • FlexApp UIA - User Installed Applications
  • FlexApp DIA - Departmental Installed Applications

Step 1)  Stop ProfileUnity Services (Container-DIA, Elevation/Restrictions-UIA) from installing:

Edit: ...\Netlogon\ProfileUnity\LwL.ProfileUnity.Client.Startup.exe.config (LwL.ProfileUnity.Client.Startup.Update.exe.config if 6.7.5 or later) Or and Change following two sections of the configuration file:

<setting name="InstallFlexAppService" serializeAs="String">




        <setting name="InstallContainerService" serializeAs="String">

  2. \\domain\netlogon\profileunity\LwL.ProfileUnity.Client.Startup.exe /uninstall
