KBIf you use System Center Configuration Manager 2007 with App-V then you might want to take a look at this new KB we published. It’s a hotfix that addresses a situation where you may see a memory leak when you use an App-V package that contains icons.

Consider the following scenario:

  • You build a three-tier System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) hierarchy that has a central site, a child primary site, and a secondary site.
  • You add a Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) virtual application package to the central site.
  • The App-V package contains icons.
  • You distribute the App-V package to all distribution points (DPs).

In this scenario, memory usage on the child primary site increases based on the size of the icons included in the App-V package. Additionally, if you create another package by using the same App-V source, or by clicking Update Distribution Points on the existing package, more memory is leaked on the child primary site.

For all the details and a download link please see the following:
