Microsoft App-V 5 error "The application failed to launch. This may be due to a network failure."

Version 1


    Consider the following scenario:

    -  At Composition > Applications, a Microsoft App-V 5 application was configured with the following settings:
        - On the Properties > General tab of the application, Package delivery mode was set to Minimal (per user) or Full (per user).
        - The option Always use latest version of package was selected.
    - A user with a mandatory user profile logged on to a RES ONE Workspace session.
        - Different versions of the .appv file existed in the package folder.
        - The user started the application, closed it again, and logged off.
        - The user logged on again.

    In this scenario, in the user session, when the user started the application, the following error might be displayed:

    "The application failed to launch. This may be due to a network failure."
