Application Management (AppMgmt) Service on Windows Server 2012

Q

What is the "Application Management (AppMgmt)" system service on Windows Server 2012? Can I disable "Application Management"?

A

"Application Management (AppMgmt)" is a Windows Server 2012 service that processes installation, removal, and enumeration requests for software deployed through Group Policy. If the service is disabled, users will be unable to install, remove, or enumerate software deployed through Group Policy. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.

Detailed information on "Application Management" service:

Service name: AppMgmt
Display name: Application Management
Execution command: 
   C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs
Dependencies: None

"Application Management" service is provided by the svchost.exe program, see "svchost.exe Executable Program on Windows Server 2012" for details.

Disabling "Application Management" service should not cause any issues on running Windows 2012 Server. If you are not using the Group Policy to manage applications on the system, you can disable "Application Management" to improve system performance and security.
