Office 2013 ODT The operating system is not presently configured to run this application RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi!

    We have RDS 2012 R2 setup up and running with session host, connection broker, rd gateway and rd web. AS office 2013 can be deployed using APP-V 5 SP2, we have created .appv pkg using ODT as mentioned in this guide . It was working fine for 2 days and then suddenly we started to get error popup window saying "The operating system is not presently configured to run this application" . We are receiving this error on Session host server(win 2k12 r2) which is App-V 5 sp2 client, when we try to open any office 2013 app.

    And If check on App-v server which is also a publishing server. In event viewer i see this log entry.

    Log Name:      Microsoft-AppV-Server-Publishing/Admin
    Source:        Microsoft-AppV-Server-Publishing
    Event ID:      215
    Level:         Error
    The request URL doesn't contain the query string for the client OS.

  • Hello,

    What happens if you repair the package - does that resolve the issue?

  • No, changes, But we were applying few local group policies, which we removed as we felt that might be the issue

  • Hello,

    If you remove and add the package again, does the error disappear?

    Are you opening the applications through shortcuts or through file-type associations?

  • The issue is that AppV 5 SP2 doesn't include a new server that supports 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1. Microsoft has a hotfix that adds the necessary support

    Download Hotfix Here

  • hi! I have installed that update. Also i have sequenced Teamviewer 9, which is not giving any issues. So i am suspecting that its ODT which has done something in that package. Cant we sequence office 2013 also usingg sequencer ? Its really annoying issue.

    And i tried to remove and add package again, same issue.

  • We have the same issue. All other applications seem to work fine.

    App-V 5.0 SP1 with hotfix package 2 installed on the App-V Management/Publishing server. We only use Windows Server 2012 RDS instead of R2. On the RDS servers, App-V 5.0 SP2 is installed. We use User Profile Disks and also used the ODT for Office 2013.

    I our case it worked for a few hours. We didn't change anything (no updates of other things) other than having a few users try to login with different accounts to test the application. Reinstalling the client doesn't work and we also tried to removed all AppVClientPackages and then clear the cache from locations like:


    I'll post a solution if I find one.

  • We are still working on it. So far no luck. They have not been able to reproduce the issue.

    I have a conference call scheduled later today. I'll keep you posted.

  • I have been working through similar problems. I fixed them by disabling user profile disks in my RDS environment. Some apps worked without any issues. Some, Office in particular, would work fine on a client OS with AppV 5, but fail on on the RDS servers with UPDs enabled. Disabling UPDs solved the issue.
