App-V client fails on launch RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When trying to launch an application, the App-V client fails at the the 'checking for updates' stage.  Microsoft's solution seems be to configure the SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER environment variable on the App-V client, but I can't find how you actually do this.

    Thanks.

  • The problem was actually much simpler than I first thought. I had tried installing the App-V client from a network share, rather than the C drive of the client machine. Installing again from the C drive resolved the issue.

  • Hi Geoige

    You can modify this options and more in the registry, just open regedit (in the client). Go to:

    for 32bit machine i think: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SoftGrid\4.5\Client\Configuration

    for 64bit machine: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\SoftGrid\4.5\Client\Configuration

    there you find the key: "ApplicationSourceRoot" you need to put your Streamming server.

    For more info you can go http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd464849.aspx.

    Enjoy it!


    We can do things in a "Good" way(DEL) or in a "Brute" way(SHIFT+DEL).

    Ok, found the "ApplicationSourceRoot" key, but there is no value in here. Any ideas?

  • Hello,

    How is your infrastructure setup?

  • That value is blank by default, you need to know the streaming source location for your packages. 

    See this article for more info on ApplicationSourceRoot: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc843817.aspx

  • Well, i guess God made Google for something (or Google made God) but we are not gonna discuss about that here, just use it :). As Znack asks to you, you sould say wich infrastructure do you use, one Streaming server? you do the pkg and then copy them in your local maschine?, a share? anyway, you can check the logs, they are really usefull (i guess thats why programmers make them). In your client are in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Application Virtualization Client\sftlog.txt"

    I feel sarcastic today... Geoige, have you tryed to check "ApplicationSourceRoot" in google? i help you http://www.google.com/search?q=ApplicationSourceRoot&hl=en and just check the first link im sure Aaron know about it ;).

    Znack and Aaron you both become a "Vote As Helpful" at least someone know what to ask and how to google :)
