App-V client on Windows 7 Professional (OEM) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I installed a App-V 5 server and published multiple App-V packages for testing purposes. I installed the App-V client on the a W2K12 server and on a Windows 7 Professional OEM computer. The App-V client is working on the W2K12 server, but not on the Windows 7 desktop. The App-V packages aren't visible. I can't find anything in the logs. I thought maybe it has something to do with Windows Professional or the OEM? I know I need a SA. But for now it's only for testing purposes.

  • From a technical perspective, Win 7 Pro is fine.

    The Win7Pro machine should be joined to the domain.

    Also, there is a chance that there is an OS limitation (version, bitness) configured inside the packages.

    Did you configure the Publishing Server on the client? Propperly?

  • Oke, thanks. 

    The Windows 7 Machine is joined to the domein and all operation systems (32 bit and 64 bit included) are selected inside the package. 

    The Publisher and the client are configured propperly.

  • I think it's not working because the packages are sequenced on a W2K12 server, and the Windows 7 machine is x86. Do I need to sequence the applications on a x86 machine?

  • Hello,

    Yes, you need to.

    Only packages created on a x86 can be deployed to x86. Packages created on x64 can not be deployed to x86 machines
