App-V 5.0 - Sequencing ImgBurn, saves with invalid package manifest RRS feed

  • Question

  • I sequenced ImgBurn today (link), and the sequencer crashed when trying to run the customise phase.  I reverted, and saved another sequence where the app was not launched at all and I selected the default save, and this one saved ok.

    However, if I launch the app at any point, and try to do a quick save again (avoiding the customise part), when the package saves I get a red warning symbol about an invalid package manifest.  The package crashes the sequencer if I try to open it up again.

    I opened up the working and non-working manifests to compare them.  The broken one has a few additional file type association entries, other than that the only other difference is near the end:

    <Applications xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/appv/2010/manifest">

    <Application Id="[{AppVPackageRoot}]\ImgBurn.exe" Origin="Application" TargetInPackage="false">

    TargetInPackage is set to true on the working package that was not launched.  I wonder if this could be the issue?

    I can send the packages or just the schemas to anybody that would like to troubleshoot, otherwise it's easy enough to reproduce by downloading the app since it's freeware!
