AppV 5: HTTP and PackageSourceRoot; folder name being appended incorrectly to the path RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    If I set the PackageSourceRoot value to \\<Server>\<ContentShare> everything works fine, but if I set it to http://<server>/<ContentShare> it fails. I have created a virtual directory in IIS which pioints to the  content share continaing the files. If I enter the url in a browser I can see the virtual folder so I know the virtual folder is 'working'.

    In the logs I can see the problem, it is resolving to http://<Server>/<ContentShare>/<ContentShare>.... something is appending the virtual foler to the path. Incidentially if I enter http://<server> to PackageSourceRoot it just resolves to http://<server> in the logs (and fials obviously!).

    If I use \\Server\ContentShare in the PackageSourceRoot it works fin but I would rather use http.

    Any idea where I am going wrong, I can't see why/what is appending the folder name to my path?
