  • When can we expect the official Release of SP2?

  • Unfortunately there is no publicly available date to share at present for SP2.

  • OK; Thanks.

  • Any release date available now?

  • If we want to Virtualise an ActiveX component today in AppV 5.0 SP1 is the only way RunVirtual?  If our requirement is that we have 2 different versions of an ActiveX to isolate from each other then that doesn't get resolved by RunVirtual because it all runs in one big bubble.  For example, can you still create the I.E shortcut and virtualise each ActiveX separately as you could in AppV 4.x using AppV 5.0 SP1 - is this what you are specifically resolving with SP2 and if so how long till the release?

  • Hi Amal,

    Yes you are correct. Your only option to keep them isolated at present is to sequence the shortcut as you did in 4.x : blogs.technet.com/.../sequencing-a-shortcut-in-app-v-5-0-local-and-virtual-interaction.aspx

    There is no public release date for SP2 at present that I can share with you.

  • Tried sequencing Salesforce for Outlook plug-in as an add-on in App-V 5.0 SP2. But while launching the shortcut, natively installed outlook is not recognizing virtualized salesforce plug-in. Does shell extensions, will work only for browser plugin or for all other plug-ins also.. I am stuck up here, can u pls help me out.... Am i missing anything???

  • Hi there, I haven't seen this functionality working with anything other than Browser helper objects and ActiveX Controls. You may need to use RunVirtual for your scenario.

  • We have virtualized many ActiveX controls pre SP2 without much issue. To access the IE with the virtual plug-in we removed all native shortcuts to IE and published one with the /appvve switch. Everything is published on a per user basis
