  • Blog Post: App-V 5: Do you Still have to Run Process Monitor within the App-V Bubble when Troubleshooting Applications?

    If - by that question you want to know if you must start an instance of Process Monitor within the virtual application like you did in 4.x – no. You could run process Monitor inside the virtual bubble, but it will not yield you much more results. The reason behind this is simple: unlike previous...
  • Blog Post: App-V 5: The Case of the Rogue App Path

    I have been working issues where it was difficult to determine why a specific application in a virtual application would not launch or trigger under certain circumstances. In particular, when another application called the application directly in order to pass data to that virtual application. Normally...
  • Blog Post: App-V 5: On why the App-V 5 Sequencer *Really* Reboots

    Prior to version 5 of App-V, when you sequenced an application that required a reboot, the reboot was simulated in that the sequencer would process the reboot action including the Pending File Operations and the RunOnce registry keys (RunOnce, RunOnceEx, GuiRunOnce, etc.) when monitoring ceased. In most...
  • Blog Post: App-V 5: On Application Launch

    In previous blog posts, I discussed what happens when a package is added/configured, published, and when streamed. But what happens when an application is double-clicked? App-V needs to determine if the application needs to be virtualized, and if so, which virtual environment. The Shortcut is launched...
  • Blog Post: App-V 5: On Streaming

    Now that Hotfix 4 for App-V 5.0 SP2 has been out now for several weeks, many of you have likely already seen our Updated Guidance for Performance Recommendations now available on Technet ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn659478.aspx .) It almost goes without saying that the new stream-to...
  • Blog Post: App-V 5: Application Troubleshooting: On the Origins of an Error Message

    Have you ever been testing a virtualized application and it fails with a bizarre application error that is either extremely vague (unknown error) or coupled with some random hex code? Your first reaction usually is “Where’d that error come from?” That is a good reaction to have as it...
  • Blog Post: App-V 5: The Case of the RunVirtual Collision

    I've discussed running native applications within virtual environments and the many ways we can bring applications like Internet Explorer into the bubble. One of the many reasons we would need to bring IE into the virtual environment is for web applications that use different versions of Java. When...
  • Blog Post: App-V 5: On Run Virtual, RDS Run Virtual, Virtualizable Extensions, and Dynamic Virtualization

    If you think that title is a handful, it simply a summary of most of the ways we allow local processes to interact with virtual environments in App-V 5. Whether or not you need to use these features will depend on factors such as targeting or if you want to take advantage of features introduced in App...
