App-V 5 Sequencer Crashes Every Time RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, I have a pesky app (http://pearsonassessmentsupport.com/support/index.php?View=download&EntryID=485) that when sequencing crashes the sequencer every single time. It happens when I'm done installing, clicking the check box "I'm finished installing" then clicking next. The sequencer ghost's out and crashes immediately with:

    Sequencer is Win7 x86 SP1. Stock sequencer install, no modifications. Sequencer version is above, have also tried 5 SP1 same results. I'm scouring the install changes to find out what it could be but it looks daunting. Anyone seen anything like this before? This app runs a mini-database I believe which I'm thinking might be the issue. Not sure. The app seems to install just fine and runs.

  • Hello,

    I sequenced the software on a Windows 7 x64

    PVAD; C:\P

    Did not install to the directory

    I started the application once

    This is how the VM is setup;


    The sequencer didn't crash

  • The obvious option would be to try it on another machine.

    I did hit two issues a couple of years ago with two different apps that kept crashing the sequencer.

    For one of them, when I tried on a different Windows OS, it sequnced fine.

    For the other one, if I disabled the service installed by the app before clicking to finish the installation it worked. Maybe try Win7 64-bit Znack did

  • Thanks guys. I have tried three different instances of VM's but they weren't configured as Znack suggests. I will build a new VM based on those recommendations and see if I get a different result.
