App-V Client prompts for logon user credentials

Errors: Microsoft Virtual Application Desktop prompts for username and password

Error Codes: 4604EE8-1C504B01-0003100E 4604EE8-1690900A-00002002

Cause: Live Essentials has been installed and messed with LSA Security Packages registry key

Quick check, where xxxxxxx is remote machine name

Z:\>reg query "\\xxxxxxx\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa" /v "Security Packages"

    Security Packages    REG_MULTI_SZ    kerberos\0msv1_0\0schannel\0wdigest\0tspkg\0pku2u\0livessp

To fix remotely, removing 'livessp' from REG_MULTI_SZ value

Z:\>reg add "\\xxxxxxx\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa" /v "Security Packages" /t REG_MULTI_SZ /d "kerberos\0msv1_0\0schannel\0wdigest\0tspkg\0pku2u" /f
The operation completed successfully.

Nuke cached programs via registry (needs reboot)

set State DWORD to 0

reg add \\xxxxxxx\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\SoftGrid\4.5\Client\AppFS /v State /d 0 /f
