Changes:


 



  • Fixed issue where the FSLogix Profile Service would crash if it was unable to communicate with the FSLogix Cloud Cache Service.

  • The Office file cache is now machine specific, and therefore cannot roam between session hosts, so it is excluded from FSLogix containers.

  • FSLogix Search Indexing is now only available in versions of Windows Server that do not provide per-user search indexing. Per-user search indexes were introduced in Windows Server 2019 (version 1809). FSLogix search indexing is not available in Windows 10 or Windows 11.

  • FSLogix now correctly handles cases where the Windows Profile SVC refCount registry value is set to an unexpected value.

  • Over 30 accessibility related updates have been made to the FSLogix installer and App Rules Editor.

  • A Windows event now records when a machine locks a container disk with a message that looks like “This machine ‘[HOSTNAME]’ is using [USERNAME]’s (SID=[USER SID]) profile disk. VHD(x): [FILENAME].”

  • Resolved an issue where the DeleteLocalProfileWhenVHDShouldApply registry setting was ignored in some cases.

  • Fixed an issue where active user session settings where not retained if the FSLogix service was restarted. This was causing some logoffs to fail.

  • FSLogix will no longer attempt to reattach a container disk when the user session is locked.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the FSLogix service to crash when reattaching container disks.

  • Fixed a Cloud Cache issue that caused IO failures if the session host’s storage blocksize was smaller than a cloud provider’s. For optimal performance, we recommend the session host disk hosting the CCD proxy directoy has a physical block size greater than or equal to the CCD storage provider with the largest blocksize size.

  • Fixed a Cloud Cache issue where a timed out read request (network outage, storage outage, etc.) was not handled properly and would eventually fail.

  • Reduced the chance for a Cloud Cache container disk corruption if a provider is experiencing connection issues.

  • Resolved an issue where temporary rule files were not deleted if rule compilation failed.

  • Previously, the Application masking folder was only created for the user who ran the installer. With this update, the rules folder is created when the Rules editor is launched.

  • Resolved an interoperability issue with large OneDrive file downloads that was causing some operations to fail.

  • Fixed an issue where per-user and per-group settings did not apply if the Profile or ODFC container was not enabled for all users.

  • Resolved an issue where the Office container session configuration was not cleaned up if a profile fails to load.

  • Fixed an issue where HKCU App Masking rules leveraging wildcards would fail to apply.

  • Fixed an issue where FSLogix did not properly handle logoff events if Profile or ODFC containers were disabled during the session or per-user/per-group filters were applied mid-session that excluded the user from the feature. Now FSLogix logoff related events will always occur if FSLogix loaded a container for the user.

  • Fixed an issue that caused some sessions configured with an ODFC container to fail to login.

  • Resolved an issue where the App Rules editor would crash if there were no assignments configured.
