Hello,

Can you clarify what do you mean by "required in shortcut"? File extensions and application shortcuts are two completely separate things in App-V (well, not really, but conceptually they are).

Hi Kalle,

I done BMC Remedy package, while capturing in App-v after installation part we need to add\edit\delete the shortcut as per the requirement, in that one shortcut doesn't pointing to any location(StartMenu\Desktop) but it has some File associations related to the application and another two shortcuts doesn't have any fileassociations and pointing to StartMenu.. So, to support for other two shortcuts, I supposed to keep the shortcut which contains File associations\File extensions. I mean in all scenarios, this case(Necessity of File associations for shortcut) happens??

Yeah, sometimes applications in Sequencer's application list get assigned file associations and have no visible entry points (shortcuts) for them. This usually indicates that the application handles its file associations through some launcher executable which is never meant to be started directly by the end user.

If you customize your published apps, I would suggest leaving those ones intact as you just cannot arbitrarily change file associations to another executable without knowing if app supports it.

Is this what you were asking of?
