App-V protocol specified in OSD file is not supported

I’ve been putting together a proof of concept environment for Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V), and ran across this error when testing app streaming.

The fix was really easy…don’t forget to escape the backslash characters in the OVERRIDEURL section of the install path…just like the documentation says to do. So…the command line should look something like this (note the double backslashes in the OVERRIDEURL parameter):

msiexec.exe /i "Package.msi" MODE=STREAMING OVERRIDEURL="\\\\SERVER\\SHARE\\FILE.SFT" LOAD=TRUE /Q
