Sequencing Office 2010 x32 on App-V 4.6 x64 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    I'm getting ready to sequence Office 2010 32-bit on 2008 R2 (x64 App-V 4.6 RDS) for use in a Citrix environment. I've done some initial sequences successfully and the applications run fine, but I cannot get the proxies to work right, so I have a couple questions:

    1. Are proxies still not supported with x64 Office 2010? Or can I do that now and have an all x64 system?
    2. On the sequencing machine, do I run the x86 or x64 version of the App-V Office Deployment Toolkit? How about on the target client machine?
    3. My SendTo integration still says "There is no email program associated". Is there a registry key or something I can check to see if this has been properly set up by App-V toolkit?
    4. Windows Search in Outlook worked, so I know I at least got that OK.
    5. Is there any documentation on the proper way to test all the proxies to be sure they work?

    Thanks,

    -Justin Grote

  • Hello,

    1. Still not supported

    2. You should run the version of the deployment kit that corresponds to the windows-version as stated when you download the kit.

    3. Probably is, but I don't know right away. 
    See this to verify Outlook Express - perhaps its very similiar?

    4. OK

    5. Actually there isn't any verification documentation as far as I know.

  • Thanks, I'll take this as meaning I should do it for the sequenced machien and the guest's architecture, both x64 in this case. I just wasn't sure if the x64 was for the x64 version of Office, but I guess that is answered by #1 because x64 proxies still aren't supported.

    For #3, it's probably a very similar hook, I'll use regshot to compare before/after of the app-v toolkit and see if it populates that.

     

    Thanks!

  • After going through and rebuilding the packages, being very careful and thorough, it looks like the proxies are working now. Thanks for the help. Now to DST in the iFilter packs, add-ins, etc. and see if that all works as advertised :)

    Here's my scribble recipie:

     

    Sequencer:

    Before Monitoring

    -----

    Add VLS to  SxSAppExtensions  (KB983462 Step 2)

    Download App-V Deployment Toolkit (x64 version)

    Run: msiexec /I offvirt.msi

    ADDLOCAL=Click2runMapi,Click2runOWSSupp,Click2runWDS,OSpp,OSpp_Core,OSppWoW64 PIDKEYS=***INSERTYOURPRODUCTKEYHERE*** USEROPERATIONS=1

     

    During Monitoring

    -------

    Install Office to Q:\<mountdirectory>, clear out user information, set English OCR and Outlook Themes to Installed.

     

    move "c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\filters" C:\install\

    Move  C:\install\filters "c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\filter"

    move "c:\program files (x86)\common files\microsoft shared\filters" C:\install\

    move C:\install\filters "c:\program files (x86)\common files\microsoft shared\filter"
