Office co-existence: Locally installed Outlook 2007 does not work after you used Outlook 2010

Known limitations when Office applications are virtualized

Outlook emails are not included in Windows Search results
If Outlook 2010 is virtualized, no results are returned when you use the Windows Search feature on Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 to search for emails.

Office co-existence: If Outlook 2007 is installed locally and Outlook 2010 is virtualized, the Send To mail recipient option will open a message in Outlook 2007 rather than Outlook 2010
To work around this issue, uninstall the locally installed version of Outlook.

The “Connect to Outlook” feature is not available when viewing a calendar on a SharePoint site
If you view a calendar on a SharePoint site and select the Calendar option under Calendar Tools, the “Connect to Outlook” option is not available.

In Windows Explorer, the SharePoint Shared Folder Synchronization menu is not displayed.
The SharePoint multiple uploads feature is not available

The “Send to OneNote 2010” printer option is not available
The Send To OneNote 2010 printer option requires the Office package to be properly configured for the virtual proxies and to be deployed globally to the machine.  Deployments using the App-V Management Server or other per-user package deployments will not expose the Send To OneNote 2010 printer functionality.

  • Never quit understood why Outlook does not have a fully, optimized search feature.

  • J.C.:   You write: The following error message may occur on an App-V client when accessing a document library in SharePoint:

    The Application Virtualization Client could not launch the application you requested.

    The specified application does not exist. Check the name you specified, and then try again. Error code: xxxxxxx-xxxxxx04-00000A09

    If you reinstall the Deployment Kit multiple times on an App-V client, the  “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\CVH” registry keys may not be populated properly. To resolve this issue, uninstall the Deployment Kit, restart the system and reinstall the Deployment Kit.

    ... **WHICH** Development kit?  I have Win7, Office2010 and I get the error when opening a silly PDF !!! :).  I can open Adobe Reader or Acrobat and then open the file but get the error above when double-clicking on the PDF.

    Note that I have a corporate Win 7 / Office 2010 image on my machine and am no longer connected to corp-net (machine is now on a workgroup.. not a domain) (no longer work there :)).

    Thanks.
