Software Deployment Question

Build App-V 5.0 packages with MSI-Generator

05/12/2014 3470 views

I want to build App-V packages with the MSI Generator, so that we can deploy them with the Microsoft System Center 2012 and the application type "Microsoft Application Virtualization 5". The problem is every time I try to build the package, there is a red flag at the step "Exception during converting mgp to App-V 5 package" and the package folder is still empty.It doesn't matter what software i use, this "failure" comes every time.

So what i'm doing wrong?


We use the test license of this program, so my knowledge is not really good.

Thanks for help!

I was going to suggest to make sure everything is 'local', dont use use UCN paths.

But, test license, there is a limit with that on the number of file and reg keys. Check out their online docs, and try a very very small app for testing.

Now I tried it with 7-Zip, which is a really small app, but it still doesnt work. The path to the installation file is local, too.


There is an image of the "failure"
