Has anyone tried to create Opentext Enterprise Connect App-V 5.1 package?

Hi I am trying to create OpenText Enterprise Connect app-v package but after publishing and running "OpenText Enterprise Connect" shortcut it throws an error "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.". Has anyone tried to create Enterprise Connect app-v package? Or maybe other application that runs explorer in similar way "C:\Windows\explorer.exe /n, ::{2E2E0587-4CA0-459A-8B4B-F44A4C863CA9}"? Maybe some workaround for this approach? I will be grateful for any tips.

You could try and hook it with a /appvve:App-VGUID_VersionGUID, but I dont think that will work, since your are hooking explorer.exe.

Oh my gob, I think Ive worked with this software in the past, its horrible.

Update 2018/10/02.
If can you register your DLL and get the remaining  App-V package working, then there is hope. Sounds like the DDL works when registered with the App-V package? If that is the case, then you can use the UserConfig.xml config to register the DLL to the users pace and not the machine space (everyone). It sounds like you are using user level targeting for your App-V packages (?), I say this because you said the dll/icon registered for everyone and it sounded like that was a undesired result. 

Anyway, this my idea. If you can register the DLL at the user space without admin rights (normal user), then you should be able to do this through the App-V XMLs. See this page for regsvr32 details and give it a go.

If it works then I can give you a hand with the App-V xml gubbins. Err maybe.. im on holiday tomorrow!

  • Hi rileyz, thx for your answer. Unfortunately this approach did not work. There is HECWE64.dll file and it needs to be registered on host machine. When I have tried to register it inside app-v then bluescreen appeared and when it was registered on host then app worked fine but icon showed in windows explorer for every user. I assume that it is one of those apps that can not be virtualized ;/ - CRJSM 3 years ago
    • If you can use the App-V package with the DDL registered locally, there still might be hope. See my update above. - rileyz 3 years ago
