Microsoft AppV Client Installation and Repair issues
I am facing problems while installation of "Appv Client 4.6".
1. I got the MSI where repair and modify options were disabled. I created a MST for APPv Client 4.6 and enabled the options. On repairing the package will show fatal error. Does APPv Client supports repair?
2. I want to change the Global Location from "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documnets" (default setting) to "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Application Virtualization Client". For this I used SET Property CA to set "CONF_SWIGLOBALDATA" property and gave the value to "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Application Virtualization Client\"
But after installation files are still getting installed to default location.
In log file it shows there is a CA "SWIUpdateGlobalDataProperties" which sets the value of CONF_SWIGLOBALDATA and other properties FS_FILENAME, FS_SWIFSSTORAGE, SWIDUMPPATH.
However when installing through command line and passing the parameter CONF_SWIGLOBALDATA= C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Application Virtualization Client\, package installs with the required settings. But instead of commnadline parameters I want it to be done in the MSI. Any idea how to do it?
Did you try "[%ALLUSERSPROFILE]\Application Data\Microsoft\Application Virtualization Client\" instead of
"%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Application Virtualization Client\"
Where [%ALLUSERSPROFILE] is how you would retrieve the value of the ALLUSERSPROFILE environment variable into a windows installer property.
