App-v package which needs Excel + Internet Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need to package an application (App-V 4.6) on Windows 2008 which need Internet Explorer and Excel.
    Please advise howto do this. I packaged the application but when starting the Excel plugin it says it can't find the application itself.

    Please advise.

  • Sequence the application on a machine that has Office on it. Create a shortcut which points to the locally installed Excel. Also create one point to the local IE. When these shortcuts are launched it will launch the users local Excel and IE into the virtual environment, allowing them to see the virtual plug-ins.

    If you did this but opened Excel or IE during the sequence, go back and do it again and don't launch them. Or at least make sure that both have been launched before sequencing so that when you launch during  sequencing it's not the first time they have been launched on that machine (help avoid first run junk getting captured)
