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.


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.)
