App-V 5.1 service does not start "error 1068: dependency group failed to start" (Windows 2008 R2/2012)


  • Hi,

    We recently installed App-V 5.1 on terminal servers/RDS. Now it's the third time I encounter the same issue: the App-V client won't start. Error =  1068, dependency group failed to start

    Only can make it work by removing, reinstalling (repair does not work). Don't find any relevant info in logs to indicate what the problem could be.

    Please advise.

    In eventviewer I see following errors but can't make much of it:

    Security information for VFS directory C:\Users\TEMP.domain.000\AppData\Local\Microsoft\AppV\Client\VFS has changed from its previous value.

    User VFS COW folder validation failed for source: C:\Program Files, target: C:\Users\TEMP.domain.000\AppData\Local\Microsoft\AppV\Client\VFS.
