Live Meeting 2007 Client virtualized in App V 4.5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using AppV 4.5 , sequencing and operating in XP SP 3.  I have sequenced a package that includes:

    • MS Office 2007 SP 2
    • MS Office Communicator 2007 R2
    • MS Office Live Meeting 2007 Client
    • MS Office Live Meeting Plugin

    The applications interact with each other well (I can successfully Meet Now from within Outlook, presence flows between Outlook and Communicator etc.) but I run into a problem when I share my desktop or an application using the virtualized Live Meeting.

    Client CPU usage cranks up to 98-100% and stays there, and PC performance grinds to a halt.  If I have Task Manager open, it reports that taskmgr.exe is taking up most of the CPU utilization, with the PWConsole.exe right behind it (each at 30-40%.)  Other users can see my shared desktop normally.

    If I am able to get it to respond enough to close the desktop sharing session, performance returns to normal.  I can view other shared desktops/applications, and otherwise work in OLM with no trouble, but as soon as I share my desktop, or even just 1 application (including another virtualized app in the same bubble) performance grinds to a halt on my client PC.

    This came up during testing, so it's on our internal network.  Sharing using a locally installed Live Meeting client does not exhibit this problem.  We've tried from multiple client machines and have the same problem from each (a couple of different laptops and a desktop PC.)  I have tried disabling hardware acceleration (per some OLM forum tips) and it made no impact on peformance. 

    In the OSD's I have LOCAL_INTERACTION_ALLOWED, and even tried disabling that for the OLM OSD and it also had no impact on performance.

    Are there some steps to sequencing Live Meeting I might be missing?  I've seen referencec to best practice that said to include all the above items in a single package, but I haven't found anything specific to OLM.

  • Hello,

    I vaguely remember reading a KB-article relating to either Communicator or Live meeting and virtualization. Unfortunatenly I can't remember what I searched for to locate it.

    Have you determined what happens when using PROCMON and the problem occurs?

  • I have tried the same as MROswick sequencing those office apps only with 4.6 on a Win 7 machine.

    i get with Live meeting 2007 the following error

    000002E4 elevation required.

    While sequencing i could not start te app with the shortcut

    i could start just starting the PWconsole.exe.

    I found a RunAsInvoker envlist for in the OSD file this was not my solution.

    I followed the office 2007 KB art while sequencing.

    everting is working fine only not live meeting.

    anyone know a solution?

  • Hello,

    Since you have a different error - post a new thread.

    As opposed to "working fine only not live meeting" it would be great with a lot more information.

  • Hi Mroswick, you can give to me more information about sequencing Live Meeting 2007 Client? I'm try, but received error "this application" no correct installed" and I can't select destination folder on disk Q when start process intalling.
