Passing parameters during installation Firefox app-V RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I start to virtualize Firefox and i made a script to modify default URL, proxy, ...

    I don't know how i can launch this script during package installation.

    I begin test to add the script to the OSD, but i think it will play every time firefox will launch.

    If you have an idea how i can make this ?

    regards.

  • So,

    I try another way. I put my script in the virtual package and i made a program without shortcut. Then I launch it with a "sfttray" command line at the end of my installation.

    Thanks again for all replies.

    regards

  • Hello,

    App-V doesn't offer any possibilities to run scripts while installing the package. If you want to - you can modify the MSI (if you use the standalone distribution method).

    App-Vs native scripting possibilites are explained here;

  • Before sequencing Firefox, install it and customise it to your liking, then take a copy of prefs.js and deploy into the package as a preference. Follow the guide here for virtualising Firefox: http://blog.stealthpuppy.com/virtualisation/sequencing-mozilla-firefox-7/

  • Hi Aaron,

    I can't customise it during sequencing, because my company have a lot of sites and the proxy and default url change frequently.

    SO i will try with OSD file and i send you a feed back soon.

    Thanks
