In our Horizon View VDI environment we use UEM to manage some application’s user data. I used the Application Profiler included with UEM to create this profile for AutoCAD. One issue that we we have with AutoCAD is that it will reconfigure when launched by a new user. We tried to capture a default profile but the registry entries captured include lots of references to the specific user profile path for that user, which caused issues on launch. I have attached the INI file and icons to this post.
To prevent AutoCAD from crashing on launch, make sure to capture <LocalAppData>\Autodesk, which isn’t included by default when using the Application Profiler.
Application: Autodesk AutoCAD 2017
OS: Windows 7

Please feel free to comment with any issues or suggestions you had using AutoCAD with UEM in your environment.
