How to disable alerts for Folder/protocol redirection



At first log on users get a an alert saying folder redirection failed (i have it disabled) and asking to enable protocol redirection. I go around and check “do not show again” however it reappears with every new update.

Is there any way to disable these alerts centrally?

Good Answer

You can turn off the folder redirection feature in WSE RemoteApp as follows:

1. Open the server Dashboard and go to the “WSE REMOTEAPP” page.

2. Click on the “Server Access Settings” task.

3. Under the “Folder Redirections” section, uncheck the “Documents”, “Downloads”, “Music”, “Pictures”, and “Videos” checkboxes, and then click on the “Save” button in order to save your changes.

Doing that will stop the WSE RemoteApp Launcher from attempting to redirect those folders when it starts, and you should no longer see the notification letting you know that the folder redirection(s) failed.

    Thanks Mike, Is there also a way to stop the protocol redirection message?

    Alas, I’m afraid not… The URL protocol redirection prompt is automatically set to redisplay to the user any time a new version of the add-in is installed, or once per year. There is currently no way to change or disable that behavior. It was done that way in order to make sure that URLs (links) properly open in the default web browser of the user’s client PC instead of in the default web browser of the server. Microsoft has made it so that developers can no longer query the default web browser on Windows, so I have no way to determine if the URL protocols are properly set or not.
