App-v 5 Client don't show applications


  • Hi!

    I have a problem with appv client 5.0. When the system startup the applicattions don't refresh. If I open the console APPV and manually check doesn't work....

    I find event logs and all seem OK

    *Client:  Event 19002   Publishing refresh started  URL: http://appvserver:889    ALL OK

    * Server APPV: Log Operational ==> the user request refresh     ALL OK

       The package is successfully updated and published. In the console appears in green.

    On the other hand, I revised :   ALL OK

    Any errors appear anywhere

    I don't undestand what happens.....

    Help please

  • Open a powershell window.

    import-module AppvClient

    get-AppvClientPackage *

    You should get a list of packages which are being published to that client.  Do you see anything?

  • Does the client ever refresh? You should be aware that your Publishing Server has a setting which dictates how often a client can\should be able to refresh

  • can you confirm that http://appvserver:889 is your publishing server (and not your management server)?

    In a browser, can you open http://appvserver:889 ? You should seen an XML file that contains something (or almost nothing)

    What AD assignemts did you configure for the application on the Management Server? A Group with users or computers?

    In the Server Management Console, 'Server' section, there should be your Publishing Server listed. Is there a current entry for the last refresh time?

    @Rorymon: to be precise, that setting does not dictate how often a client can refresh, but how often the Publishing Server connects to the Management Server for an update list of applications (well, the perceived result is siilar)

  • I'm with Falco now.

    What AD assignments were made?

    Can you confirm that http://appserver:port  is correct and working?

  • Yes:

    My publishing server are http://appvserver:889

    I can open http://appvserver:889 and view Xml

    AD: I configure a new group to administrate Management Server

    The last refresh time is 12/09/2013  10:40

  • More shows:

    *App-v Client Powershell

    Don't show any application when I manually refresh in the App-client console, but I see the log in the server: "The user request refresh" and in the client : "Publishing Refresh started URL: http://appbpv02d:889

  • Now, in the Appv-server Event Log (SERVER-PUBLISHING/ADMIN) I see

    Event 103

    Log Name:      Microsoft-AppV-Server-Publishing/Admin
    Source:        Microsoft-AppV-Server-Publishing
    Event ID:      103
    Task Category: None
    Level:         Error
    Keywords:      Common
    User:          IIS APPPOOL\AppVPublishing
    Failed to refresh publishing metadata. 
    Message: DownloadMetadataError (URL: http://localhost:889/Publishing/Metadata/

  • The issue is in your Publishing Server config (well... *one* issue is there, but there might be others).

    The RegValue PublishingService / Publishing_Mgt_Server should point to http://localhost:888instead of 889.

    With that value you tell the PublishingServer where it can find the ManagementServer.

  • Hello,

    Is the application sequenced, and allowed to be deployed to, on a Windows 7 x86 machine?

  • Are you publishing to users or to computers? users wont refresh until you log off and back on.

  • Your publishing server and management server are still probably not in sync. I think we need to find the catalog disconnect. Are the apps listed in the manifest under %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\AppV\Server\Publishing\PublishingMetadata.xml?

    Can you browse this same information when you pull up the URL in IE?

  • Hi,

    I have the same problem. When I go to http://published_server:port my XML file is empty.

    But when look the XML file in %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\AppV\Server\Publishing\, he's good.

    How I can solve the sync between management and published server ?

    Thank's in advance.

  • Can you confirm that the ports used for Management server and Publishing server are nor blocked because of firewall?


    Thursday, November 17, 2016 7:24 PM
  • For me, all firewall are disable (for test).

    I have delete this files from these folder :



    Then, I have set this key




    Then, I have restart my server with Management and Publishing service on it.

    I'm using RDS 2016 with Personal Virtual Machine collection and Pool Machine collection.

    Now, It work with a Personal Virtual Machine on Windows 10 1607.

    But with Pool Virtual Machine, it dosn't work. I have create a new topic for this.
