Toolbox3Are you having trouble figuring out where to start when troubleshooting App-V sequencing and virtualization issues? Or maybe you’re looking for some tips from the pros on how they approach these types of issues? No matter where you’re coming from, Microsoft’s own Steve Thomas has some great insight on the art of troubleshooting App-V applications.

Lately I have been dealing with the big challenge of teaching something that I have become to know as more of an art than a science. That is, the troubleshooting of virtual applications not functioning correctly in App-V. I have seen many articles that walk through how someone was able to figure out why one particular application was failing and how they were able to provide a resolution. We always appreciate these brave pioneers who prevent us from having to reinvent the wheel when we happen to have the same exact application problem.

What we do not know in many cases is how they went down that particular path of troubleshooting. What we will often only see (and I myself am quite guilty of this) is the abbreviated cleaned-up version of how the problem was resolved.
