Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 using the 4.6 SP1 sequencer

    General discussion

  • There is an issue that currently being investigated by the App-V support team regarding virtualization of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 client with the new App-V 4.6 SP1 sequencer. It appears the issue is tied to the Classic Client more and not the Role-Tailored client. In addition to the workflow being slightly different from the workflow outlined here:



    The Role-Tailored client will need to be sequenced using a VFS path rather than an SFT mount (MNT) path. You will need to change this part of your recipe:


    Section: “To run Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 Setup”

    In Step 5. Do not specify the destination directory. Use the default directory.


    In addition, install the  Visual C++ 2008 SP1 run-time module on the Sequencer in advance.

    Package Accelerators

    There may be a maximum path limitation being hit preventing the creation of a package accelerator resulting from a VFS installation. This is caused by 3 factors: 1.) Lengthy paths created by the Dynamics installation. 2.) The package accelerator creation process adding additional 7 characters to the package root. 3.)  If the sequencing machine is a single volume machine where the Q:\ drive is actually a substitution.

    You can work around this by creating a second partition for the Q:\ drive on the sequencing workstation.

  • There seems to be another issue with the german Version NAV 2009 version. The sequencer freezes during beginning of RTC , CC client installation.

    Only way to sequence is starting separatly the MSI for RTC and CC. But in this case you cannot install any language pack and must work with the english one.
