AppV 5.1 Excel plugin not loading RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to AppV a SAP Excel plugin.

    On the sequence server I get the plugin to work perfectly (on a local installed Excel 2016 CtR (Office 365)).When I start the shortcut Excel 2016 starts and the plugin ribbon is visible within in Excel.

    However, when I create the package and publish it to the client, Excel starts (installed locally on the client), but I get an error the plugin isn't registered correctly.

    The plugin is a VSTO based application with it's own executable (it starts Excel with a few parameters: BiOfficeLauncher.exe" /app XLS /AnalysisPlugin /lb 3).

    My guess is the plugin knows it needs to start, but for some reason, the specific VSTO file isn't able to start.

    Anyone any tips / tricks on how to get this plugin working through an AppV package ?

  • Did you set the following regkey, as you're using C2R:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ClickToRun\OverRide]
    "AllowJitvInAppvVirtualizedProcess"=dword:00000001

    Also install at least hotfix4 for 5.1
