RES ONE Workspace error: 'Cannot find <URL> /appvve <GUID>. Make sure the path or internet address is correct.'

Version 1

    Problem

    Consider the following RES ONE Workspace scenario:
    • Managed application (i.e. Internet Explorer) configured .
    • Parameters filled with Microsoft App-V 5.x parameter /APPVVE with a valid GUID to an App-V 5.x application.
    • The Microsoft App-V 5.x package is installed only on selected machines.
    • The managed application is set available to all users .
    On machines that have the Microsoft App-V 5.x application installed the application starts correctly.
    On machines that don't have the Microsoft App-V 5.x application installed the application might give an error.

    I.e. a managed application Internet Explorer is started with /APPVVE to an App-V 5.x package.
    When a device does not have the Microsoft App-V 5.x application installed and the managed application is started, the following error might be displayed :

    'Cannot find <URL> /appvve <GUID>. Make sure the path or internet address is correct.'


     

    Cause

    The managed application can't cope with the Microsoft App-V 5.x /APPVVE command.

     

    Solution

    RES ONE Workspace now offers the possibility to configure an application that will run inside a Microsoft App-V 5.x virtual application bubble only if the virtual application package is deployed. To enable this new feature, the parameter /ROW:NoPkgDelivery was introduced.

    When configuring the application, add this parameter to the Parameters field that also contains /appvve:<PACKAGEID>_<VERSIONID> (on the Properties > General tab of the application).

    Example:

    /ROW:NoPkgDelivery /appvve:<App-V 5.x application GUID>_<version GUID>
    /ROW:NoPkgDelivery /appvve:668b7873-3ecd-4a81-aa74-0136bad81e7e_31912d51-2d3c-4622-baed-b7ad136fb032

    With this parameter, if the configured application is started in a session where:

    • the App-V application package is not deployed, then the application will start but the /appvve parameter will be ignored
    • the App-V application package is deployed, then the configured application will apply the App-V application


    This parameter will become available in RES ONE Workspace 2016 SR1.
