MS Teams VDI optimizations w/ AVD


We're a "Zoom" company, not a "Teams" company. We won't pre-install Teams (Mainly because automatic startup launch of that beast is hard/impossible to disable). They also invented ALLUSER vs ALLUSERS install switchs wich are clear as mud. See

So the situation is that (some) users will install Teams themselves, in a per-user installation.

Does the registrykey (reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Teams" /v IsWVDEnvironment /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f)

enough to trigger VDI optimization of futur per-user installations of Teams ?

Yes that should work if the machines are persistent but I suggest anyway to preinstall Teams on all machines with the following command:

msiexec /i Teams_windows_x64.msi OPTIONS="noAutoStart=true" ALLUSER=1 ALLUSERS=1

To prevent autolaunch you can use a Group Policy as well but this needs to be applied before the installation.

The ALLUSER switch is to install Teams per machine and not user.
The ALLUSERS switch is to let the Teams installer appear in Programs and Features so all users can uninstall it and not only the user that originally installed it.
