App V 5 - Start sequenced app with a shortcut switch ?

10/20/2013 4607 views

Hi Guys,

Im packaging in an app that requires the program shortcut has a switch after it.

eg NavCad.exe /s157.211.1.102

I have included the deployment.xml here: http://pastebin.com/pRxWTpPx

, could someone let me know where i can alter the .exe so it uses the above switch - i assume i need to alter the shortcut somewhere?

I would say you need to do that as part of your sequence

so install it and point it to the switch manually, app-v should then capture it.

if not create a shortcut and import it after sequencing into your package, that should keep the credentials.
