I've been trying to package the Endnote version X2 application (including MSWord 2003) with APPV, but am having problems with the end result. While in the "sequencer" MS Word (with EndNote plugin) opens just fine. However, once the package is saved and deployed, MS Word crashes immediately upon launch from the OSD file [:@]. Just curious if anyone has successfully packaged EndNote X2.

Thanks, Guy

Guy,

Have you got Word on the target machine as well as in the package? This can cause issues.. If you do, then I'd recommend removing Word from the package (but ensure you have it on the sequencer before monitoring the Endnote installation)..

If you don't have Word on the client, then I'd suggest from Procmon monitoring to see if you can get any clues as to what it failing when you launch word..

Regards,
Danny

Thanks for suggestions Danny,
I did have local Word installed on the target machine. I tested the package against a machine without Word, and it seems to work. I originally tried sequencing without including Word in the package (just installed on the sequencer), but that version had problems as well. I'll try sequencing one more time and not include Word in the package. Wish me luck!

Guy,

If you have problems launching word inside the 'bubble' even when it's not sequenced then take a look inside the virtual registry and remove any references to Word (except any that your app actually needs) - I'd suggest just getting rid of the whole HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office key, but you might want to be a bit more subtle than that!

Cheers,
Danny
