Pass different perameters to App-V app for different users RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greeting,

    have an application in normal environment: c:\program files\app\app.exe

            for IT user, we use "c:\program files\app\app.exe" /IT, then get IT menu

            for HR user, we use "c:\program files\app\app.exe" /HR, then get HR menu

            for Marketing user, we use "c:\program files\app\app.exe" /MR, then get Marketing menu

            if "c:\program files\app\app.exe" /?, then show help menu

    now I sequenced the app.exe. how to transfer the parameters then?  4 shortcuts?

    thanks

  • I don't think there is any other way other than creating multiple shortcuts.

    If you don't want to do that then may be you can create a script which will ask if the user is from HR, IT or Marketing Dept & then launch shortcut with respective parameters.

  • If a user belong to maximum one group (IT, HR ..) than it's fine to use the "multiple shortcut - one package" approach.

    But, if a user is a member of multiple groups (IT, HR ..) you need to make multiple packages.

    This is a step back from Softgrid/AppV 4.

  • I assume you can create 4 shortcuts with different names which has different parameters.

    Have you tried that? Any Issues?

  • I Knew I can create 4 shortcuts

    Is this the only way?!

  • and/or vote here (on the Microsoft Application Virtualization customer feedback site) to get a similar feature in appv5.
