StartMenu empty RRS feed

  • Question

  • After the recent Windows Update patch tuesday (13-08-2019) my StartMenu is near-empty for about 15 minutes after logon.

    We use the latest FSLogix release. Before the updates StartMenu was working fine.

    I found a cmd line workaround to fill up the startmenu again, but it would be nice if this could be fixed. The rest of the profile loads fine and after a while my StartMenu reappears.

    Any thoughts? Can I rebuild a cache or temp thingy?

  • Are you using redirections.xml?  I found issues when using that and AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Caches borks up the tile portion of the start menu.

  • Hi,

    It would be a good idea to submit a support ticket for this issue. It is strange that the Start Menu items would start appearing after some time.

    Could you elaborate on near empty? (Are all the basic Windows items there and only profile specific info is missing?)

    Could you share the command line work around you found?

  • Hmm. I was implementing redirects.xml and disabled it after the startmenu problems. I now reactivated it, but without the Caches entry. 

    I rebooted, logged on and my startmenu was good. I will try again tomorrow.

  • Hi ehorsting,

    could you solve the problem in your case?

    I can confirm the problem with the empty startmenu with Windows 10 1809 when using redirections.xml for customizing.

    I tried to exlude

    • Appdata\Local
    • Appdata\LocalLow

    from beeing synchronized from Profile Container in order to keep VHDX sizes reasonable.

    I tried both parameters COPY=0 and COPY=1 (in order to keep Appdata\Local persistent on the client side like Roaming Profiles do).

    But it seems that the mechanism preservers a small footprint of Appdata\Local and Appdata\LocalLow in the VHDX anyway what makes it go wrong...
