How to disable the User Installed Application service

Problem: 

We don't use User Installed Applications at this time or it is not supported in our environment (Terminal Services/RDSH, XenApp full desktops).  You may want to disable in these multi-session environments as the UIA service will spawn a monitoring process per-user for app capture and while individually they don't use much resources, a lot of them on a single machine could accumulate to use more resources than desired and you may want to free that up by disabling the service.

 Caveats: 

If the UIA service is not running, then you will also lose the ability to use the Application Restrictions and real-time Privilege Elevation, though triggers that elevate processes will still function normally, triggers for app-open and app-close will not.  Examples of rules that will no longer work:

 

Possible Resolution(s)

Option 1: (Deployment method independent)

Create two new User Defined Script rules to disable and stop the UIA service similar to the following:

Option 2: (ProfileUnity installed in base image)

Stop and disable the Liquidware Labs User Installed Application service in the base image and perform a recompose.  (NOTE: Upgrading Client Tools will reset this service back to Automatic start.)
