Yesterday I got an interesting email from a Mr. Tom Torggler regarding a Microsoft App-V issue he was experiencing when he tried to stream a package with Configuration Manager 2007. If he set the advertisement to “Stream virtual applications from distribution point” then it would fail, but if he set the advertisement to “Download content from distribution point and run locally” then everything worked just fine. When the application failed it would generate a 0A-400000C8 error similar to the one below:
I had seen that error once before and in that case the customer had a proxy configured that was interfering with the streaming of the package. Since streaming uses HTTP and downloading does not, this is why one worked and the other didn’t.
Sure enough, Tom tried disabling the proxy and it worked. Tom later went on and found more details as to why this was failing with his proxy server and since this particular error wasn't documented on the Internet anywhere he decided to write up a great blog post explaining the issue and what he eventually found.
If you happen to run into this 0A-400000C8 error then check out what Tom did, and check out your proxy. Chances are that's the source of issue.
