I was trying to install my first App-V package after installing the client. I had created my root package folder and then ran the below command to set this as my source in App-V.

I then ran the Add-AppvClientPackage command (below) to add my Google Chrome package.

Sounds all groovy however, I got this error

This didn’t make a lot of sense to start with, but after some google I checked the permissions on the root package folder and they looked fine. I tried different packages in case this one was faulty, but I got the same result.So in desperation I delete the folder and was about to recreate it, when I had a thought. Previously when I had set this up I didn’t pre-create the root package folder, I just ran the command. So, I ran the below command again (without creating the folder) and it all worked fine.

Microsoft Application Virtualization Error 1

  1. All Windows apps. Any Windows application. 100% of Windows software programs. However we say it, there's no Windows app we can't virtualize. AppsAnywhere uses a next-generation application virtualization technology that can handle every single Windows app, even if they're legacy software titles or 16-bit!
  2. The abbreviation App-V stands for Microsoft Application Virtualization and is Microsoft’s solution for application virtualization. The applications are streamed from a server to a client in a virtualized way and then executed in a virtual environment in a sandbox. The Wikipedia has some explanations on this topic.

Microsoft Defender Application Guard helps protect your device from advanced attacks by opening untrusted websites in an isolated Microsoft Edge browsing window. Using a unique hardware-based isolation approach, Application Guard opens untrusted websites inside a lightweight container that is separated from the operating system via Hyper-V.

So the moral of the story is, think once, think twice, think don’t pre-create the package installation root folder, just run the Set-AppVClientConfiguration command with the -PackageInstallationRoot switch, stating where you want your folder.
