Applications that are sequenced through the App-V 5.0 SP1 sequencer may not be installed correctly


Microsoft has published a new Knowledge Database regarding an issue with the MSI generation of the APP-V 5.0 SP1 X64 Sequencer. However only the 64-bit sequencer is affected by this issue.

Symptoms are described as following:

Applications that are sequenced through the Microsoft Application Virtualization 5.0 Service Pack 1 (App-V 5.0 SP1) sequencer may not be installed correctly when you try to add the package by using the generated MSI. The MSI setup starts, continues, and then exits without generating an error message. Additionally, a generic event that resembles the following will be logged in the Application log:

Log Name: Application
Source: MsiInstaller
Event ID: 1033
Task Category: None
Level: Information
Keywords: Classic
Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: MyApp 1.0 Product Version: 1.0. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: Microsoft Corporation. Installation success or error status: 1603.

Note MsiInstaller 1033 events that have a status code of 1603 are generic and only indicate an installation failure. You must collect MSI logs to definitively identify this scenario. For information about how to do this, see the “More Information” section.
