As per the trial guide, I am trying to sequence word viewer 2003. I have created 1 vmware machine for windows xp, but while creating it did not prompt me to create different drives, so after xp got installed, I created "Q" drive through command line.
Now after clicking on begin monitoring, when I try to install word viewer 2003, i get error message saying that, "Error 1320: The specified path is too long Q:\WDVIEWER.2K3"

Please guide.

As I was having a problem, while installing wordviewer 2003 to "q" I installed it, on some another folder, and on configuration page, I changed path to "q" drive..., I was able to sequence it successfully.
Now, After publishing atill I am facing the same issue, which i faced in default application...I am not able to get shortcuts on taskbar, get message loaded eventvwr i get folowing log.

{hap=1:app=Word Viewer 2003:tid=3A0:usr=test1}
Loaded app

I think there are some problems on client machine
1) At the time of client installation, on data location page i kept default values
2) Q drive on client is created after it, and if I am going to access it, I am getting error "access denied"

you don`t need to create a Q drive by hands. Please ensure that you have install a Sequencer Client on the desktop. or try to reistall it

1. Verify if your client machine is pointing to your App-V Server.
2. Check if you have included the User in Application related group in App-V Mgmt console while publishing.

if it's a virtual machine, add another drive in the virtual machine console. Inside the virtual guest OS, go into disk management and assign it the Q: drive.
When sequencing, let it install to C:\, you don't HAVE to install to Q:. It just creates a tiny bit of overhead for the App-V client when processing files that are supposed to be on C:. For such a small program, it's probably immeasurable.
Check your OSD file and be sure that the syntax matches your Default App (if it's working).

This is a Windows* OS/file system issue.The cause is the directory paths in the system is longer than 255 characters (including spaces).You may see the error "The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters," under the following circumstances:Opening an assembly with .NET ReflectorExporting source code for an assembly using an add-in such as FileDisassembler, or FileGenerator.There's a lot of additional softwares which can fix this problem like Long Path Tool.
