ICONs missing from file associations? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi, When I import a application to my 4.5 management console I have to manually create links to the fta icons. They are specified in the OSD so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong? I have a feeling 4.5 has an issue with spaces in the path? See below OSD:

  • Are the icons not there, or is there the wrong icon, say a default App-V icon.

     

    This is often caused when the System Options are configured with the improper path and the path created during import does not point to the actuall path of the icons.  Remember this is normally done with either a SMB share to the content or a specific share with the icons, or to a web server that has the icons.

     

    Right click on the server and select System Options

     

    On the General tab make sure the Default Content Path points to a UNC or URL that has the location of the OSD or ICO files.

  • Matt is correct.  The best way to see if the path is correct to the OSD's and Icons in the package is to do the following:

     

    1)  Click on the Application in the Management Console

    2)  Under the General Tab, copy the path under the Icon Path (do this for OSD too)

    3)  Go to Start, Run, paste the link and hit enter.

    4)  If successful, you should see the "Windows cannot open this file"

    5)  If path not found, then you need to set the path correctly.
