Steps to reproduce

As you can see in my attachments, I’m having problems to open my desktop settings and seems to be related to some registered path in IE Dev Channel. I tried to uninstall it but it always fails due to App-V Client incompatibility with Windows 10. Even using the PowerShell command suggested in other threads won’t work. Please, I need help with this.

  • Hi Daniel,

     

    Sorry for the delayed
    response.  Brad has moved to another project.  :’-(

    We are currently focusing on MS Edge related issues on
    this site.  H
    owever, I did look at your
    screen capture and it appears you were working from the older instructions.  Can you try again using the instructions on the following site and under the Question noted below?

    "Q: I tried restarting but
    I still can’t uninstall the Internet Explorer Developer Channel?

    Open
    Windows PowerShell with administrator privileges. The easiest way to do
    this is to search for PowerShell in the Start Menu, right-click, and then
    click Run as administrator
    .

    Run
    the following commands one line at a time:

    Set-ExecutionPolicy
    -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Scope Process

    $regkey =
    “HKLM:\SOFTWARE\microsoft\Appv\Client\Virtualization”

    Set-ItemProperty $regkey -name
    EnableDynamicVirtualization -value 0

    Set-ItemProperty $regkey -name
    ProcessesUsingVirtualComponents -value “”

    Restart
    your machine.

    Try
    to uninstall Internet Explorer Developer Channel from theUninstall or
    change a program
    dialog box in the Control Panel.

    If
    uninstallation fails, open Windows PowerShell with administrator
    privileges and run the following commands:

    Import-Module appvclient

    $packagePath = $env:ProgramData +
    ‘\Package Cache{4BE37C1D-4D90-432A-8E70-A46CABC26247}v5.1.4099.0’

    Add-AppvClientPackage
    “$packagePath\IEDC.appv” -DynamicDeploymentConfiguration
    “$packagePath\IEDC_DeploymentConfig.xml” |
    Publish-AppvClientPackage

    $packagePath

    Uninstall
    the Internet Explorer Developer Channel from the Uninstall or change a
    program
    in the Control Panel.

    Be sure to run each of the commands separately.  The first four and then restart and then the following four commands.
