Issue: When a virtual application is operating without a virtualization server (i.e. distributed as an MSI) not all users may see “Quick Launch” icons for that application.
Cause: “Quick Launch” icons are configured by the MSI installer for the current user account only. This is by design in Windows as there is no global “Quick Launch” menu that applies to all users.
Resolution: There are a couple workarounds we can use to address this:
Workaround #1: Install a Application Virtualization Management Server and configure the application virtualization client to do a Publishing Refresh (DC Refresh) from that server at logon and this will configure the desktop including Quick Launch icons.
