Synchronizing Office with UE-V (Windows 10)

Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) supports the synchronization of Microsoft Office application settings. The combination of UE-V and App-V support for Office enables the same experience on virtualized instances of Office from any UE-V-enabled device or virtualized desktop.

Microsoft Office support in UE-V

UE-V includes settings location templates for Microsoft Office 2016, 2013, and 201. In previous versions of UE-V, settings location templates for Office 2013 and Office 2010 were distributed and registered when you installed the UE-V agent. Now that UE-V is a feature in Windows 10, version 1607, settings location templates are installed when you install or upgrade to the new operating system.

These templates help synchronize users' Office experience between devices. Microsoft Office 2016 settings roamed by Office 365 experience aren't included in these settings. For a list of Office 365-specific settings, see Overview of user and roaming settings for Office.

Deploying Office templates

You can deploy UE-V settings location template with the following methods:

  • Registering template with PowerShell. If you use Windows PowerShell to manage computers, run the following Windows PowerShell command as Administrator to register this settings location template:

    Register-UevTemplate -Path <Path_to_Template>

    For more information about using UE-V and Windows PowerShell, see Managing UE-V settings location templates using Windows PowerShell and WMI.

  • Registering template with Template Catalog Path. If you use the Settings Template Catalog Path to manage templates on users' computers, copy the Office template into the folder defined in the UE-V service. The next time the Template Auto Update (ApplySettingsCatalog.exe) scheduled task runs, the settings location template will be registered on the device. For more information, see Deploy a settings template catalog.

  • Registering template with Configuration Manager. If you use Configuration Manager to manage your UE-V settings storage templates, recreate the Template Baseline CAB, import it into Configuration Manager, and then deploy the baseline to user devices.
