Hotfix package 6 for Microsoft Application Virtualization 5.0 SP2 is now available

App-V 5.0 Service Pack 2 is still supported despite of the release of Service Pack 3.

Therefore Microsoft has released a new hotfix package which addresses the following issues:

Office Click-to-Run applications do not start when you try to open Office documents from Microsoft SharePoint.

The App-V 5.0 SP2 client tries to virtualize Office Click-to-Run applications. This breaks integration with SharePoint and prevents Office Click-to-Run applications from starting when the user tries to edit Office documents that are hosted on SharePoint sites.
