Right click menu missing from taskbar of virtual applications RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have experienced a weird issue recently and just wanted to test the water to see if anyone else has seen the same.

    Some applications dont have a right click menu from the task bar. When you right click them nothing happens. The expected result would be to get three options, the application name, an option to pin it and a close all windows option. But with this, no options appear at all.

    I've seen this happen to three applications so far, but it can be quite intermittent. The one application i consistently do have issues with is portable database browser.

    I sequence it on a windows 7 pc by just dropping the source files into y:\pddb and sealing it up. When the client opens on the sequencer the right click options are there. When i open the application outside of app-v on the server 2008 system it also has a right click menu.

    I'm stumped!

    anyone have any idea's?

  • I have seen this with OpenOffice, I think it's a by-product of the isolation. There's a related article on similar behaviour with Skype here: http://www.tmurgent.com/TmBlog/?p=419

  • Sadly Tim's recommendation with changing the compatibility mode was unsuccessful. This problem is only occuring for this one application which is acceptable in the grand scheme of things. If it starts to reoccur with more important applications I'll put a call through to support.

    Thanks again for the help.
