OS Independant? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'd like to know if an app-v package is considered OS independant?

    Because i created an MSI package for JDEdwards, converted it to the App-V format with AdminStudio 9.5, it executes properly on Windows XP but not Windows 7 and both OS are using the App-V client v4.6.

    The error on Windows 7 is that MFC42.dll is missing when the app-v package is loaded into memory.

  • In your specific instance, MFC42.DLL exists on Windows XP, so when sequencing on Windows XP that DLL won't be captured in the package, so when executing on Windows 7 it reporting that the DLL is not found. You could open the package for upgrade and add the DLL and it may then execute OK in Win7.
