Running network shortcut from apps in connection group RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working for a client that has a setup where there are two base packages then numerous packages that contain different shortcuts to executable's on a network share depending on job role. these exe's depend on the system files installed locally on the client from the base packages

    These packages are delivered in a connection group via SCCM.

    base package 1

    base package 2

    shortcut to \\share\app.exe

    shortcut to \\share\app1.exe

    shortcut to \\share\app2.exe

    etc etc

    I seem to have discovered a new app-v error that I can find no information on when running a shortcut to a network exe from within a connection group:

    The virtual application '\\share\app.exe' could not be started because the App-V Subsystem 'Virtual Filesystem' could not be initialized. {error: 0x7430090A-0x20004}

    As expected the shortcut packages create the shortcut using the /appvve switch:

    \\share\app.exe /appvve:{packageID}_{VersionID}

    any help would be much appreciated I'm seeing this is on windows10 1909

  • So you're only seeing this issue with connectiongroups, or also if you test the package separately?

    What happens if you open a dosbox in the Virtual Environment of the connectiongroup, are you able to start the network exe from there?

    Start-AppvVirtualProcess cmd.exe -AppvClientObject(Get-AppvClientPackage -Name *mainpackage*)

  • thanks for the reply:

    Yes only when the connection group is enabled I get the error.

    same error within a dos box in the virtual environment.

    I can reproduce the error by creating a simple package pointing to notepad.exe on a network share then adding that to a connection group too, If you have time to test yourself see if you get the same result
