Click-to-Run Microsoft App-V5 packages do not work with File Type Associations (FTAs)

Version 1

    Problem

    When importing a Click-to-Run package into RES ONE Workspace and you import the File Type Associations (FTAs), the FTAs import with extra parameters ([root]\program\exe) causing the FTA to not work.

     

    Cause

    A new configuration of Microsoft App-V5 Packages is available.

    Microsoft is requiring packages for some applications (Microsoft Office 2013) to be built using Click-to-Run, not the traditional Microsoft App-V5 Sequencer.  This package has a different code base, and is not handled properly by RES ONE Workspace.

     

    Solution

    This issue is resolved in RES Workspace Manager 2014 SR4.

    In case the Service Release is not (yet) available or in case the Service Release cannot be installed, a revision containing this update is available on request at RES Support.
