I have had major issues with this latest update, none of my appv 5 applications just hang after installing this update, has anyone had any issues?
there is only hotfix 4 for x64, not x86?
We also have major issue after installing this hotfix.Shared content store mode not working and all applications are streaming locally..(shared content mode also enabled)..anyone facing same issue?
Seems like this needs to bake longer, I install the client via DSC using the MSI and this is what I got trying to install the patch:
The very thing it says isn't there...IS there. Someone half-assed the depcheck.
You guys going to give any guidance on these problems?
The solution is to extract the msp's like you extracted the MSI's, the installer isn't smart enough to figure it out, that is fair enough I guess, next problem, even though you can install the app-v client without a reboot, you cannot install HF4 without
one, even if everything is shut down, which means if you use provisioning and say, DSC, you are screwed, App-V 5 just went from something you could dynamically configure to needing to be baked in, thanks to a stupid hotfix...
With regards to the Shared Content Store being set back to 0, that can potentially create ripple effects as I laid out here:
Now, on to the patching requiring a reboot: You have kernel\filter drivers in use. In order for those to be refreshed in memory it requires a reboot. This is not limited to just App-V.
BTW Alcaron, I see that error when a pre-release or beta of SP2 is installed.
