AppV Application hook into Word2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Briefly.. I have a sequenced app on Appv5sp3 that requires a hook into word2013

    The inhouse app uses word when printing out forms

    Can this be added to the config XML file?

    Im unable to capture this at is ran from a secure live system

    Thanks

  • If Word is also a app-v package, create a connectiongroup with both packages.
    If wordt is installed locally:
    1) Use runvirtual to let you virtual app hook with the local version of word
    2) Use a custom shortcut, pointing to word.exe and append the /appvve switch.
    Have a look here. You are running SP3.

    If you want to use option 1) you need to create a script to run at publishing time to alter the registry. If you go for option 2), you can modify the userconfig and add a shortcut (or just create a shortcut to word (without appvve switch) while at sequencings stage).

  • You need to follow steps like how Roy has explained. You can refer this blog also. The run virtual and /appvve can be added in the config files through scripts or batch files.

  • great!! just keep in mind, you can only configure 1 package to run with a specific exe through runvirtual. If you want more, you need to create a connectiongroup, and let runvirtual point to the mandatory package from that group.
