Special note for Those Updating 4.6 to SP2 or SP3 using the MSI instead of the EXE

If you have updated App-V 4.6 SP1 to SP2 or SP3 using only the MSI, please be aware that you will need to also ensure that the Visual C++ 2005 and 2008 updates (containing the critical Redistributable Package MFC Security Update) are also installed.

If you deploy using and ESD such as Configuration Manager, you may have noticed some quirky behavior post-deployment - especially with FTA (file-type-association) behavior. Before you do anything else make sure these run-times are updated.

The specific updates can be downloaded here:

KB2538243 from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26368

If you are upgrading by using the EXE, this should happen automatically.

    Grwrr. I wish it was easier to identify if these were already installed on a machine. MSFT naming the .exe the same name for both versions and not listing the version that appears in add/remove programs is pain!

    But thanks for pointing this out 😉
