Hotfix 3 for App-V 5.1 released

Microsoft released the Hotfix 3 for App-V 5.1 a few hours ago, which is described as a “MDOP Hotfix Rollup”. The Hotfix addresses the following issues and brings App-V to Version

  • App-V crashes on Remote Desktop Services (RDS) when dynamic configuration causes a policy update.
  • Custom configurations for existing entitlements are overwritten.
  • Added ETW log to detect when file has incorrect “FILE_EXECUTE” permissions.
  • App-V template for UE-V is missing registry keys.

The Hotfix can be found here: KB314445

Additionally, you can also manually request a Full-Installer, with HF3 embedded, at Microsoft. This will make new deployments a lot easier and faster without needing to install RTM first and apply the latest HF afterwards.
