Quick citrix tip: Getting “cannot start ” launching app-v app(SMB/Single Admin mode) in XenApp 7.x?

Recently setup a pool of Citrix VDA’s (7.16) to house app-v packages for publication using SMB/Single Admin mode.

On setting up (thought I) followed all the steps outlined in:

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/xenapp-and-xendesktop/7-14/install-configure/appv.html

but missed a key action on first pass, when launching my app in citrix i would get the “cannot Start <App-name>” message (pretty common and not terribly informational 🙂

Anyways said the key action i did miss was as per above eDoc:

Tip: After you install the App-V client, with Administrator permissions, run the PowerShell Get-AppvClientConfiguration cmdlet, and ensure that EnablePackageScripts is set to 1. If it is not set to 1, run Set-AppvClientConfiguration -EnablePackageScripts $true.

Once implemented was all good to go.
