AppV problem with Internet Explorer on Java 7 Updates 40 and 45 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good afternoon,

    We're currently using AppV 5.0 SP1 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and we're experiencing issues with applications through AppV which are using an Internet Explorer addon when the server is running either Java Version 7 Updates 40 or 45. The websites work ok when using Java Version 7 Update 25. The Internet Explorer version we're running is 9. A number of sites use various addins but the one we've been able to test are the RSclientprint addins for SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services. With update 25 the screen which loads the addins loads ok but on updates 40 or 45, when getting to the stage where the additional page loads it will hang, not display a page and IE sits at 25%. If you kill of this process is spawns again and the only way to get rid of it is to have the user logoff.

    I've ensured the sequencer machine has IE9, latest windows updates and also updated the Java Version to 7 Update 45 and gone to sequence the package again. On the sequencer the webpage will loads with the necessary addins, but when streamed the same issue occurs (IE gets stuck at 25%).

    Has anybody else encountered this problem and what did you have to do to resolve this?

    Many thanks

  • Hello,
    does the application work, if natively installed on a similiar server with the same java version?

  • Hi Nicke,

    Yes, a temporary workround for the users was to use the normal Internet Explorer on the server (so not going through the published in AppV link which would load the add-ins) get to the stage where the addins would prompt and enter an administrator account with sufficient privileges to allow the download and installation to the server. The required screens with the SQL Reporting Services would then load ok (there were other Internet Explorer applications with different add-ins that did a similar thing) and if then using the published in AppV Internet Explorer link for this particular website on the server where the install had just taken place, that would also load ok.

    Which would lead to thinking that the problem is related to an issue with loading the required addins through AppV when required on a server with update 40 or 45, but not with actually using the addins with update 40 or 45.

  • Hello,

    If you review the activity with process monitor (or just perhaps the package content) - is there anything that would conflict with a natively installed java?
