Cannot start AppVirtServer service after Server name change


I have a test server with Application Virtualization Management Console 4.5 & SQL Express 2008 on the same server. I change the name of the server(I had to due to name regulation here) and after that I cannot start the service, AppVirtServer.

In the SQL Management Studio I have changed the name for DB with commands sp_dropserver & sp_addserver. Seems ok.

In the registry I have searched trough for old name and change it to the new one.

In the eventlog it says: "System dispatcher initialization error [-1]. System dispatcher startup will stop"

The service starts with account NETWORK SERVICE and that is also listed in Security  logins of SQL.

In the sft-server.log it also says "SW_ProtocolServer::HostToServerRecord - - - - 2 41495 "Server record not found in data source for following: <the new servername>"

Starting Application Virtualization Management Console only result in "Unexpecteed error occurred. Error code 0000C800". TCP/IP in SQL Server Network Configuration i enabled...


Anyone have a clue? Would be much appreciated.
