Re-Deploy Shortcuts for a Package RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have deployed a virtual app (Office 2010 to be exact) to several users.  It has worked almost perfectly, except I have 2 users who received the package, but did not get any shortcuts for some reason.  They can open the application by double clicking a .doc file, but nothing appears in the start menu.  I could remove the package and re-deploy it, but I would prefer not to do this as it could disrupt the users. 

    Is there a simple command line I can use to redeploy just the shortcuts for a package for an application?  I know I can replace shortcuts within the Application Virtualization Client (sftcmc.msc), but a command line I could push out would be much handier.  I can also see me needing this for users who have deleted shortcuts.

    Thanks

  • SFTMIME REFRESH SERVER:server-name

    Run the command in the user's context.

  • Hi,

    Will this work in an environment using SCCM to deploy virtual apps?  I have tried it with the server-name set as the name of our SCCM server,  and it tells me that no server with that name was found.  Is this command maybe meant for people using an independant App-V server?

    Thanks again

    Yes, SCCM is a different beast. The command will most likely only work when using the native App-V Management Server.
