How to Disable Application Installation Check Option in XenApp 6.5
This article describes how to disable the Application Installation Check option for each application in XenApp 6.5.
(Use this if you have problems launching published apps from UNC Paths)
By default, XenApp verifies and ensures that the executable file specified in the command line of the published application exists, before returning the server from load balancing. This check prevents end users from encountering errors when a farm is incorrectly configured and the application is not installed at the specified location on all servers. However, this check requires that the executable file be accessible by the Local System account.
Disable this check if the published application is located on a mapped network drive or a location not accessible by the Local System account.
Application Installation Check
In XenApp 6.5, Application Installation Check must be configured for each application and this option can be modified using a PowerShell command.
When creating the application and configuring the application properties using PowerShell, the LoadBalancingApplicationCheckEnabled command flag is added.
Set the command flag to $FALSE, to disable Application Installation Check for an application. This flag is added to the following PowerShell commands:
For example, run the following command to disable Application Installation Check on the published application Notepad:
Set-XAApplication –BrowserName Notepad -LoadBalancingApplicationCheckEnabled $FALSE
Run the following command to list the properties of the application to ensure that the correct configuration is applied:
Get-XAApplication –BrowserName Notepad
Note: Run Get-Help Set-XAApplication and Get-Help New-XAApplication from the XenApp 6.5 SDK PowerShell environment for additional information.
