As announced by Microsoft on the 27th May the hotfix Package 2 for App-V 5.0 Sp3 is now available

The following issues were addressed:

  • Issue 1: Office Click-to-Run applications do not start when you try to open Office documents from SharePointApp-V 5.0 tried to virtualize Office Click-to-Run applications. This broke integration with Microsoft SharePoint and prevented Office Click-to-Run applications from successfully starting when the user tried to edit Office documents that are hosted on SharePoint sites.
  • Issue 2: The App-V 5.0 client held a handle to the user profile that prevented the user profile service from deleting the profile when a user logged offThe App-V 5.0 client service held a handle to the user’s copy-on-write directory. This prevented the profile from being deleted when the user logged off. In turn, a temporary profile was created when the user logged on again. This prevented the publication of applications that were allowed for publication for the user.
