Hi, Also you should look at the PVS Cache Mode. We had a lot of issues with 
Office 2013 launching and then not and found if you switched it from “Cache on 
Device Hard Drive” to “Cache in Device RAM with Overflow to Disk” programs seem 
to launch more consistently. Gareth From: thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hello, You should clear the App-V cache at the same time you reseal your PVS 
image.  Hence, it shouldn't be part of the image. Joe On Mon, Apr 21, 2014 at

Date: Wed, 16 Apr 2014 20:01:04 +1000 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 
 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
