AppV 5.1 Standalone MSI bug? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sequenced several apps using sequencer 5.1.

    Added script into Deployment config.

    Seems that standalone MSI would not use deployment file beside the MSI. SCCM successfully launches scripts.

    Hotfix Package 1 for Microsoft Application Virtualization 5.1 on a cliens is installed. Scripting enabled.

  • Confirmed, so I looked at the MSI with Orca at the SetPublishPackage32 Customaction:

    5.1: APPV_OR_MSI_FILE=[APPV_OR_MSI_FILE];MSI_TEMPLATE_REGKEY=Software\Microsoft\AppV\MsiTemplate\[ProductCode]

    Clearly missing the APPV_DEPLOYMENTCONFIG property.
    As a workaround you could use the custom transform Dan created. Have a look here

  • I can confirm this. App-V 5.1 generated MSI no longer uses deployment config file. I have blogged about this with a simple example.

  • By Default, AppV do not use the Config Files unless you specify to use one. If you don't want to do that then, you can directly write your scripts inside the AppX Manifest.xml & import it into your package using Export/Import option under Advanced Tab in the Sequencer.
