Publication Date:  2015-03-10 Views:  683 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
After a user logs in to the worker server as user test1, installs the IE Tab plug-in for the chrome browser, and releases the chrome browser, the IE Tab plug-in cannot be found when the user logs in to the worker again as user test2 and accesses the chrome virtual applications. test1 and test2 are used only as examples.
Handling Process
1. Log in to the VM as user test1 that is used for installing the IE Tab plug-in.

2. Choose Computer > Organize > Folder and search options > View, select Display all files and folders, and click OK.

3. Copy the chrome folder in profile of test1 to the default user directory, for example, copy C:\Users\test1\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome to C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Google\.

4. Delete profiles of the users who have used virtual applications before the preceding operations.
Otherwise, these users cannot view the installed IE Tab plug-in after login.

5. Back up the C:\Users\ directory.

6. Open the control panel, click User Accounts, and select Configure advanced user profile properties. In the displayed User Profiles dialog box, select the corresponding users and click Delete.

Root Cause
When user test2 logs in to the worker server using RDP and opens the chrome browser, the IE Tab plug-in cannot be found.

When user test1 logs in to the worker server using RDP and opens the chrome browser, the IE Tab plug-in can be found.

This is because the IE Tab plug-in is visible only to the user who installs it by default.
