Error when loading the Application Virtualization Client Management snap-in on a Windows Server computer running the App-V Client for Remote Desktop Services


hotfixHere’s another good KB article we just published.  This one talks about an issue that may occur if you attempt to maintain multiple connections to the App-V client through the client administrative snap-in/console under the same administrative account when accessed from multiple RDP sessions:

=====

Symptoms

When you open the Application Virtualization (App-V) Client Management snap-in on a Windows Server Computer running the App-V Client for Remote Desktop Services, you get the following error:

MMC could not create the snap-in.
MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have installed correctly.
Name: Application Virtualization Client

Cause

This may happen if you attempt to maintain multiple connections to the App-V client through the client administrative snap-in/console under the same administrative account when accessed from multiple RDP sessions.

You can have one console connection alongside a single RDP connection – even under the same user account. The issue only arises when you are attempting a second instance of the MMC snap-in from a second RDP session under the same user account.

Resolution

This issue is known and considered by design.

    When double clicking on an Excel file name in Windows Explorer, I receive an error message as follows:

    "The Application Virtualization Client could not launch the application you requested. The specific application does not exist. Check the name you specified, and then try again."

    Error code: 4625852-0B211004-00000A09

    I can open the file with Excel open and using the file open command.
