Deploying UE-V 1.0

There are a number of different deployment configurations that Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) supports. This section includes general information and step-by-step procedures to help you successfully perform the tasks that you must complete at different stages of your deployment.

Deployment information for UE-V

A UE-V deployment requires a settings storage location on a network share and a UE-V agent installed on every computer that synchronizes settings. The UE-V Group Policy templates can be used to manage UE-V settings. The following topics describe how to deploy these features.

Deploying the Settings Storage Location for UE-V 1.0

All UE-V deployments require a settings storage location where the settings packages that contain the synchronized setting values are located.

Deploying the UE-V Agent

To synchronize settings by using UE-V, a computer must have the UE-V Agent installed and running.

Installing the UE-V Group Policy ADMX Templates

You can use Group Policy to preconfigure UE-V settings before you deploy the UE-V Agent as well as standard UE-V configuration.

Deployment information for custom template deployment

If you plan to create custom settings location templates for applications other than the Microsoft applications that are included in UE-V, such as line-of-business applications, then you can deploy a settings template catalog and you must install the UE-V Generator to create those templates. For more information, see Planning for Custom Template Deployment for UE-V 1.0.

Installing the UE-V Generator

Use the UE-V Generator to create, edit, and validate custom settings location templates that help synchronize settings of applications other than the default applications.

Deploying the Settings Template Catalog for UE-V 1.0

If you need to deploy custom settings location templates to support applications other than the default applications in the UE-V Agent, you must configure a settings template catalog to store them.

Deploying UE-V Settings Location Templates for UE-V 1.0

If you need to synchronize applications other than the default applications in the UE-V Agent, the custom setting location templates that are created with UE-V Generator can be distributed to the UE-V settings template catalog.

Deploying custom templates requires a settings template catalog. The default Microsoft application templates are deployed with the UE-V Agent.
