App-V 4.5.2 Virtualized Silverlight does not work with IE7 if a native instance of ieuser.exe is not running RRS feed

  • Question

  • Not sure if this is a bug with v4.5.2 or if the App-V Trial Guide (http://download.microsoft.com/download/f/7/8/f784a197-73be-48ff-83da-4102c05a6d44/MSAppVirt45Trial_Guide_Final.docx) no longer applies to this version? 
    The issue is that if the virtualized silverlight (packaged exactly as per the Trial Guide) is run on a desktop with IE7 and IE7 has not been run nativly such that the IEUSER.exe process is running, the Silverlight virtualied instance will fail.  In most cases it hangs, then after 5-10 minutes IE will appear, but withour Silverlight.
    if one then terminated ieuser.exe and iexplore.exe via task manager, then starts and closes IE locally, such that ieuser.exe is then still running (or just leave the local instance of IE running), then initiates the Silverlight App-V instance of IE, it opens and functions as expected (as per the trial guide).  This is not an issue with IE8  (appears IE8 does include ieuser.exe.)

  • Adding the following to the OSD file resolved the problem.


    Add inbetween  <ENVLIST/>   and    </VIRTUALENV>
