For example, consider the following scenario:
- You have a computer on which UE-V is installed and enabled.
- You start an application, such as Calc.exe, that typically synchronizes its settings.
- In this program, you make some changes to the program settings, such as changing from standard layout to programmer layout.
- You leave the program running.
- You start a program such as Notepad.
- In this program, you create a file or open an existing file, and you make some changes to the file.
- You restart the computer, and then you wait for the Force a restart screen to appear.
- The local sync location (%localappdata%\Microsoft\UEV\LocalSyncFolder\SettingsPackages), if the SyncMethod property is set to SyncProvider
- The SettingsStoragePath location (as set in the UE-V configuration) if the SyncMethod property is set to None (also known as a "Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) scenario")
- Cancel the restart. Then, close all applications and resume the restart.
Note As long as no running applications block the restart process, the settings should be synchronized.
- Let Windows shut down in the usual way.
