Hide AppV Exe from "how do you want to open this" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am looking for a way to hide an exe from an AppV container in the "how do you want to open this" window. I only want that the user can run the exe via the shortcut because of some arguments. On the other hand, I am not looking for a solution to disable this feature or do other client modifications.

    Is there something?

  • It seems like you application has some file type associations. You can open the Deploymeny (or user) Config.xml, browse to the FileTypeAssociations section under Subsystem, and set Enabled to False.
    Apply this config, and verify it's gone. You maybe need to repair the package extentionspoints afterwards.

  • Hi Roy,

    I deactivated the File Association and the launch.exe is still listed as a possible application to open an unknown file type.
