Unable to launch /appvve switch via XenApp 6.5

/ / /

It appears you can’t launch an AppV environment around an application with the /appvve switch as Microsoft automatically strips the /appvve switch OR because icast.exe freaks out.

I have found an alternative method though:

This will launch a cmd.exe window in the virtual environment in citrix with the passed .exe (cmd.exe in this example).

Dan mentioned another, less character way:

    You can also use a slightly shorter version!

    Start-AppvVirtualProcess -AppvClientObject (Get-AppvClientPackage *APPNAME*) cmd.exe
