Connection group issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am sequencing adobe flash player using appv 5.0 sp3 sequencer which is targeted for the entire organization.

    We have a previously packaged Shockwave and Webex applications with Runvirtual key to iexplore.exe(HKCU). And the value of runvirtual is pointing to mozilla firefox package and version id. It is working fine. I have set 1 as the priority for this group. Shockwave and webex is targeted to a specific department.

    Now for Adobe flash player i have to use runvirtual which is tagged with mozilla firefox hence i am publishing Firefox+jre+adobe flash player. It is also working fine when we publish it. I have set the priority as 0 for this connection group.

    When i publish both the groups i can see connection groups getting published in client. Flash player works as expected. But shockwave and webex are not getting recognized. In the sense when i open IE and test Flash Player test it is working fine. but when i test shockwave using test page and webex it says shockwave has to be installed. same for webex as well. Any insight?

    details of connection groups as below:

    Connection Group 1
    – Priority-1
    – Member 1-Mozilla firefox
    – Member 2-adobe shockwave
    – Member 3-cisco webex
    the target is only for particular department
    – Connection Group 2
    – Priority-0
    – Member 1-JRE
    – Member 2-Mozilla firefox
    – Member 3-adobe shockwave
    the target is for all the machines in the organization.

    – Key Name-iexplore.exe
    – Default value-packageid_version of firefox

    run virtual is targeted for the entire org. adobe flash works fine.

  • Runvirtual in same key for both? I mean does it reside in HKCU for both cases or HKCU and HKLM?

  • You have IE configured to run virtual in the same VE as the Firefox package? May I ask why?

  • I suppose "– Member 3-adobe shockwave" has to be "– Member 3-adobe flash"!

    So you want to have shockwave, jre, flash en webex available in IE and in FF? Therefor you configure runvirtual?
    Do you deploy all packages to users? Which version of AppV are you using? If on SP3>, you could create just 1 connectiongroup and make the webex, and the shockwave package optional.
    Your Congrp2 package has prio 0, and therefore will always win, because it's entitled to all users your Congrp1 package will never get started through runvirtual.

    If you are targeting to users, I would create a new connectiongroup1 (prio0) and lease FF out of it. Just 1 group with jre and flash, and make shockwave and webex optional. Set runvirtual for IE to JRE or flash. Create a separate group2 for FF (prio1). If IE starts, group1 starts. If FF starts, group2 starts.
