Running into an error trying to install APP V application from network location.

01/23/2015 4136 views
Hello All,

I am trying to install an APP-V.msi from network location and running into errors like:

    " The provided URL could not be resolved. Please check that the URL is valid."  

and once click ok, then it runs into the following:

    "Failed to remove the package due to the following error: Unrecognized Guid format"

Once copied locally, this installs just fine.  Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

  • How exactly are you running the install? Is it via a local system account? If so, bear in mind that a local system account cannot access a network location as it does not have a domain identity.
  • Running it as Admin.

What is the command line you have used?

  • msiexec /i %~dp0appv.msi /qb!
    • can you try it with "" double quote

      msiexec /i "%~dp0appv.msi" /qb!
      • That didn't help.

The App-V client uses the system account to run the load commands, and unless you have the share set up as a null session share it won't be able to access it.
