App-V 5.1 June 2017 HF RDS server not streaming packages RRS feed

  • Question

  • Another day another RDS APP-V issue , unlike the other post I have seen this is for 5.1 and Server 2012r2

     

    THE ENVIRONMENT:

     

     

    I have rebuilt the App-V environment twice and the RDS twice just to be sure it wasn't just a build issue

    Thick clients work fine and the packages mentioned work ok either directly or via SCS

     

    THE ISSUE:

     

    • If a package is set to run the EXE then it all launches ok  ( putty.exe )

     

    • If a package is more than that ( 7zip ) then it fails to launch and the following are logged in the App-v\Client\Virtual Applications log

     

    Error 1:

    The virtual application 'C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\WerFault.exe' could not be started because the App-V Subsystem 'Virtual Filesystem' could not be initialized. {error: 0x74300E0A-0x20006}

     

    Error 2:

    The virtual application 'C:\ProgramData\App-V\207164B9-2E1E-44F1-8B8E-9533488A5C9E\8B358BD1-A148-43A6-B3CD-156830F40823\Root\7zFM.exe' could not be started because the App-V Subsystem 'Virtual Filesystem' could not be initialized. {error: 0x74300E0A-0x20006}

     

    Following advice from https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/416eae54-fd34-4881-98b0-d43e20dd7693/event-18005-appv-subsystem-virtual-filesystem-could-not-be-initialized-error?forum=mdopappv

     

    I moved the App-V package to a different folder and I can launch the application.

     

    So does anyone have this working? and if so what magic did you use to resolve it?

  • One common issue with RDS client and this error is that the RDS server is actually a XenApp server using PVS.  In this configuration people commonly place the App-V cache on a persistent disk (D:) to keep the writes out of the PVS cache. 

    If you do this, you need to add a boot script that deletes the configured App-V cache folder.  When the App-V client starts up it will recreate the folder with the appropriate permissions.
