hotfixHere's another heads up on a new App-V Knowledge Base article we published.  this one talks about an issue where you may get Error 80070643 when trying to install App-V 4.5 SP2 via Microsoft Update:

=====

Symptoms

You receive an "Error 80070643" error message when you try to install Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) 4.5 SP2 on the Microsoft Application Virtualization Client via Microsoft Update.

Resolution

Install Microsoft Application Error Reporting before installing the Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.5 SP2 update.  
When installing Microsoft Application Error Reporting, you must use the APPGUID parameter to specify the App-V product code. The product code is unique for each App-V client type and version. Select the correct product code of the existing App-V release from the following table.

Note:  If you need to find the product code, you can use the Orca.exe database editor or a similar tool to examine Windows Installer files to find the value of the ProductCode property. For more information about using Orca.exe, see Windows Installer Development Tools (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=150008).

1.     Locate the Microsoft Application Error Reporting install program, dw20shared.msi, which can be found in the Support\Watson folder on the release media.

2.     To install the software, run the following command:

msiexec /i dw20shared.msi APPGUID={valuefromtable} REBOOT=Suppress REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus

  • would not update, have no idea what this all means (above description), so I removed the virutialization application and all seems to work on my home machine.

    I can't understand why they just cant build this in right, I searched the error code above and got a different answer before reading this and removing the app, that said there was a problem with office 2003.  

    it would really help if there was some consistency in the help messages

  • Typical users are expected to know how to install Orca? The article says nothing about this being a solution or a way to get more information about the problem. What do error reporting and the App-V client have to do with each other? Why does this error occur. Another totally useless article.
