Why doesn’t PolicyPak Browser Router routes take effect the first time I log on to Windows 8.1 or Windows 10?

PolicyPak Browser Router rules (and Default Browser specification) might take two logons to take effect and/or one background GPupdate.

This is by design.

The first time the user logs on, PolicyPak Browser Router needs to get set up and introduce itself to the OS as the “Default Browser.”

Then on the next Group Policy refresh (second logon or one logon plus a manual or background GPupdate), PolicyPak Browser Router should be “saved” and ready for use.

All PolicyPak Browser Router policies should work at that point.
