I am working on an application that has a middleware dependency of Java 1.5. We are using SCCM for App-V Packages deployments. In App-v 5, We know that we need to create a Connection Group using App-V Managent Console but, since we are using SCCM for deployments, how do we deal with other dependencies applications?

I installed all the Pre-Reqs and other dependencies on clean VM prior to sequencing, and then started Sequencer to sequence the main application. Application launched fine during Sequencing process (Configuration step), but failed to launch in test machine after publishing it via Powershell. The errors are all related to missing dll files. I see that the files of other prereqs software are out of VFS? Any suggestions on what is the right way to deal with such application?

Have you looked at DSC?

That might help you, thats if you need java as part of the App-V bubble.

This also depends on the pre-reqs, if its VC++, you need this on the native machine, not in the bubble. You can get around this by creating collection and assigning it many adverts - for example the VC++ pre reqs. You could also use a task seq maybe?

Hope this helps. Riley.

 

*edit.
ohhh App-V 5, Connection Group is DSC. humm disregard the above, well the SCCM 1 to many advert might help.

  • Well,
    I installed the Java in clean VM prior to Sequencing, and it worked fine. When i posted the above questions, i did not realize that i had 2008 Redistributable while sequencing. Thanks though!
