RunAs Invoker APP-V 5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • In APP-V 4.6 you could set the RunAs variable within the OSD file.  Was wondering if anyone has come across this in APP-V 5, and where it gets set?

  • if above settings does not work, you can always create a shim, read more about shims in app-v5 here.

  • Hold the phone. Is the issue you are a facing an actual permissions issue? or just attempting to suppress a redundant UAC prompt that you don't care about?

    If it's a permissions issue, I suggest taking a look here:

    If it's an issue which you would like to use the RunAsInvoker, I'm not why the shim wouldn't work, for sure. What is the problem you are facing? A UAC Prompt? When you use the application when installed locally as a standard user, does a shim work?

  • Hello,

    Under Environment Variables you can create the user variable, or you can use the command SET.

  • I've tried both of these suggestions with no luck.  Surely, there is an easier approach for doing this.  I understand that setting permissions in the sequencer don't carry over to the stream, but I have to wonder if there is some sort of tool for us to manipulate permissions and have them stick on the user's side.
