...the users profiles in the appdata\local directory,

I have sequenced an application - and as part of the install , you need to drop an .ini file into the %userprofile$\appdata\local\ area.
The ini file points to a server connection file within the virtual app Q:\ but I can not for the life of me get it see the ini file even though the sequencer is picking up the file in the VFS\CSIDL_COMMON_APPDATA file area. When I launch the application , it starts crying that it can't see the server connection file , becuase on the local pc the ini is not in the path. I thought the application when virtualized would see the virtual file ?

Any ideas ?

have you tried sequencing an installation on the C: drive instead of Q:?
this might have some impact on the launchspeed of your App-V but it should be negligible.

no, you can also sequence installations to the C:\-drive, so-called VFS sequencing.
Since the mapping of the files in the VFS then has to be done ontop of your physical drive, startup of the App-V might be slower, but it shouldn't be too bad.

have a look at this article: http://kirxblog.wordpress.com/2011/05/19/to-q-or-not-to-q-that-is-the-question/

Ok - grand - actually , yes I remember that you can seq to C , but just through habit I always use Q

In terms of application install , this application I am sequencing has 3/4 installers and installs to a folder on the root C:\ as well as C:\program files.
Where should i point the sequencer to look at it ?

you can still point the sequencer to a share on the Q: drive. You just install the applications to C: instead of Q:. All changes should be picked up into the VFS
