Hi @schoolph,

Unfortunately I have never tried the application in VDI. So I write possible workaround.

The installer places the application under %HOME%¥AppData¥Local¥mattermost¥. Probably this causes the problem. So you can download a zip version from GitHub release, and it should work at the desired folder. Would you try this?

Was this marked as a solution?
MM does not seem to install in the Public folde.
