Please anyone if you have advice or suggestions id love to hear them... still 
having quite a few issues this way and it seems most people are baking the 
app-v apps into the image? I simply want PVS image with app-v streaming / 'full 
infrastructure mode'..... :)I saw something about moving the package root 
outside of the image to the pvs static / cache disk? is that a good 
idea?Cheersscanjam

As the title suggests we are running AppV 5.0 SP2 with a recently installed 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2934349
I have a XenApp 6.5 PVS image in read only mode and when launching AppV apps I 
seem to be able to launch some apps first time only.Doesnt matter if im admin, 
or normal userDoesnt matter if im using RDP or ICADoesnt matter if I clear my 
profile - from then on the apps are dead, for all users.Fix so far is reboot... 
which is AWESOME!
We are using the Appv 5 publishing server with Shared content mode (support 
staff etc need to be able to deploy apps to servers, and dont want packages 
baked into the image if at all possible)
Example:If I log on, launch an AppV app Winzip 18, It loads first time, then on 
subsequent retries does literally nothingFrom then on the launching of other 
AppV apps break SQL Management consoleYet one AppV application, AGS Remote 
Desktop, continues to work without issue - launches everytime!The logging of 
AppV 5 client is garbage, and there is literally nothing in the event logs 
either, all we see is the operation event log info of:A request for the file 
C:\ProgramData\App-V\12160C7F-CB16-4D45-BE71-A36E3BBD15A2\37568102-90C5-4115-8382-28A009AF1C5F\Root\en-US\winzip64.exe.mui
 from process 0x2144 is being processed as an alternate user 
S-1-5-21-162393699-21082718-2283726478-38935.
We do little in preparing the PVS image before read only mode other than 
removing all the packages from the server before shutdownGet-AppvClientPackage 
-All | Remove-AppVClientPackage
My Questions:Has anyone seen this behaviour?Are there further steps to prepare 
the PVS image for running AppV Apps in infrastructure mode? i.e (an AppV 
refresh script at the server startup?)
Thank you in advance,Beers on me if you can get this working for us!! :)James
