AppV application publishing issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a problem when trying to publish sequenced applications on App-V 5 SP2. When i try to publish an AppV application using MSI installation file i get the following error. Failed to publish the package due to the following error: Failure to communicate with Application Virtualization service. Operation Attempted: Configure AppV Package. HRESULT: 800706BE.

    I checked that the App-V service was started prior to running the MSI installation but after i get the above mentioned error the service stops running.

    I tried reinstalling App-V 5 client, Applied the latest hotfix and also deleted C:\ProgramData\App-V before reinstalling App-V client but neither of them solved my issue.

    Any help would be highly appreciated, Thanks in advance

  • Thanks Falko for the suggestion but unfortunately adding a package using (add-appvclientpackage <directory\filename.appv>) still gave the same error.

    Luckily I managed to solve it with the following steps:

    1. Uninstall App-V 5 SP2
    2. Deleted C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Appv Folder
    3. Run script to repair WMI
    4. Reinstalled App-V 5 SP1 
    5. Upgraded App-V 5 to SP2
