Hi All,

My environment is Stand-Alone Client Without Streaming

I am Sequencing the applications for our test environment. I deployed the App-V 4.6 SP1 client using this command Stand-Alone Client Without Streaming

Setup.exe /s /v"/qn SWICACHESIZE=\"12144\" SWISKIPDATASETTINGS=\"false\" SWIGLOBALDATA=\"C:\AppVirt\Global\" SWIUSERDATA=\"^%APPDATA^%\" SWIFSDRIVE=\"Q:\" REQUIREAUTHORIZATIONIFCACHED=\"0\" ALLOWINDEPENDENTSTREAMING=\"1\" AUTOLOADONLAUNCH=\"0\" AUTOLOADONLOGIN=\"0\" "

It went pretty well, Now

I am Generating the msi while sequencing and copying the msi & sft into local machine, installing the msi in quiet mode ( Stand-Alone Client Without Streaming), For that I am using this script 

 @echo off

if not exist %SystemDrive%\install\Logs\ md %SystemDrive%\install\Logs\
if not exist %SystemDrive%\install\AppV\ md %SystemDrive%\install\AppV\
if not exist %SystemDrive%\install\AppV\MozillaFirefox_13_0_1\ md %SystemDrive%\install\AppV\MozillaFirefox_13_0_1\

xcopy /y /e /q "%~dp0MozillaFirefox_13_0_1.msi" "C:\Install\AppV\MozillaFirefox_13_0_1\" >NUL 2>&1

xcopy /y /e /q "%~dp0MozillaFirefox_13_0_1.sft" "C:\Install\AppV\MozillaFirefox_13_0_1\" >NUL 2>&1

"%SystemDrive%\install\AppV\MozillaFirefox_13_0_1\MozillaFirefox_13_0_1.msi" /qb!

Everything is going well, the application Installed Pretty well and runing

But the problem is when I am tryng to uninstall this application using this command 

MsiExec.exe /X {D58E10CD-3AF8-433C-8F36-8E3DA63963A7} /qb!

 

Its is uninstalling but, it is also removing the other advertised shortcuts of my App-V applications from the machine and client. When I open the App-V client and selected Applications section all other virtual applications are gone. They are not uninstalled (I checked the Registry Keys) but no shortcuts 

I opened the Globel cache and checked there, the OSD files of other Virtual Applications are there but no shortcuts 

Any suggessions?

Am I installing the applications in stand alone mode correctly?? by copying them to locally?? Any Improvements?? 

Am I uninstalling the apps correctly by msiexec /x command??

What I can do better to remove the App-V application with out effecting other virtual applications ??

How much Cache space do I need to give while Deploying the client forstand alone mode Without Streaming (I gave 12144 MB), because I need to copy all applications locally right??

 

My apologies for these many lines, tried to shorten it but :(

Answer Summary:
Sorry for the trouble guys, created a log for uninstillation, It was not uninstalling other apps but the reason why other apps did not launch was error "Unable to initialize package information (0x00000000)" because in the softgrid client UserInterphase registry path was set up toC:\Windows\system32\CCM\VappLauncher.exe and I changed that to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Application Virtualization Client\sftdde.exe it resolved my issue. Thanks

This might be a dumb question, but did you verify the product code {D58E10CD-3AF8-433C-8F36-8E3DA63963A7} is actually Firefox and not your AppV client?

  • yes I verified the GUID, its the product code for Firefox only. I re confirmed it by doing it again in a VM same thing happened for me. I am able to open the App-V client normally. Tried sftTRAY.exe /lanch "App Name" the application did not start. I verified the regestry keys of other application msi's they are there :(
