AppV server supports different options to steam your SFT deployment file. RTSP, RTSPS, FILE, HTTP and HTTPS are the protocols available for the Server URL.
Currently I am evaluating to use the FILE option and store the virtual package on a file share. I am using the RTSP protocol and I am looking to get rid of the AppV steaming servers and only use file shares.
I import my new Jing virtual application on my AppV management server and refreshed my local AppV client to publish the new application.
The icon appeared on the desktop and I opened the shortcut. I immedialty received the following “Application Virtualization Error”.
During the installation AllowIndependentFileStreaming was not set when the AppV client was installed.
To correct this and allow streaming of a SFT file from a FILE share please change the following registry key to 1 and restart “Application Virtualization Client” service.
I used the following script to change my clients and allow the FILE streaming:
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SoftGrid\4.5\Client\Configuration /v AllowIndependentFileStreaming /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f net stop sftlist net start sftlist
