MIME types for ICO, OSD and SFT RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Applicationsourceroot, Iconsourceroot and OSRSourceroot to direct my clients to get OSD, Icon and SFT files from a web server (IIS 7) after initially contacting an App-V server to determine what applications to publish.

    Can anyone confirm exactly what MIME type settings I need for these 3? Documentation out there is vague and inconsistent. Technet documentation says

    "If you are using IIS to publish the ICO and OSD files configure a MIME type for OSD=TXT; If you are using IIS to publish packages (SFT files), you must configure a MIME type for SFT=Binary".

    Other documentation out there mentions using application/softgrid for all 3, or in another case application/appv-sft for all 3.

    Can anyone tell me exactly what needs to be entered as MIME types for all 3 entries (.ICO, .OSD and .SFT), noting that the MIME type as 2 parts to it i.e. content type/content sub-type.
