App-V and Putty

Recommended Posts

Hey guys
Can anyone tell me how would you package up a small .exe file such as putty? With App-v 5?
I want to make it available on software centre per user collection
But because putty is just a single. Exe how would you make it run on the users profile and make it appear in the desktop or start menu? As its not an actual install

 

So basically I want

the user to log in

See it on software centre

installs putty from software centre

See's it on the start menu

When sequencing perform a custom installation rather than select installer. When you get to the 'Install your applications now' screen, copy putty into the folder you want it to be in and create shortcuts in public desktop and start menus. You could modify the shortcuts to point to %USERPROFILE% instead. When all your config is done press I am finished installing.

 

The custom install then picks up the changes you have made to the system.

Thanks heaps for your input

 

What I did before you replied was , ran the sequencer, manually copy and pasted the putty file into C:\programdata\start menu

 

This worked, but for some reason when I logged in as another user, the shortcut was still sitting in the start menu and the shortcut was pointing to a dead location, therefore it couldnt find the .exe

 

Strange.. Not sure why that happened
