Office 2013 is allways inuse RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created Office2013 package with officedeploymenttool.exe, and its works otherwise nicely (app starts etc.) BUT when use get-appvclientpackage information it says my office package is allways inuse. Even i restart machine and login with admin, its already inuse even i never started office app like Excel, word. I publish this package to brand new machine, where never started office apps - it says its already inuse (no office processes appears in taskmgr).

    "

    get-appvclientpackage *office*

    ...

    InUse : True

    InUseByCurrentUser: True

    "

    This is little issue when i try to manage packages with appv management server (clients are rds/ctx machines).

    Is there any workaround to "startup inuse" -issue ?

  • Explorer is hooked for OneDrive for Business. You could remove Explorer from the processes using virtual components key - or reboot and let the pending tasks complete.

  • If you need to stop the package so that you can remove it, you can use:

    Get-AppvClientPackage *office* | Stop-AppvClientPackage -global

    However, this might kill explorer.exe and iexplorer.exe so I wouldn't run it when users are on the box!

    In a live environment, the package will update/remove or do whatever it needs to automatically once the package is no longer in use, which might happen when the user next logs off, or when the machine reboots if the package is published globally (as Office would be).
