Microsoft Office 2010 DIA application launches install when its deployed to VDI pool.

Product: ProfileUnity FlexApp-DIA

Product Version: 5.5

Expires on: 365 days from publish date

Updated: April 2, 2013



After I published MS Office 2010 DIA package to my View pool using ProfileUnity the MS Office application is starting to install.


Possible Solutions:

A) Mismatch with the version of Microsoft .net The version of the .net package on FPC and in your VM pool should match

B) Please make sure that you have App-V installed on the base/gold image of your pool where you will be deploying Microsoft Office 2010 DIA application.

To get App-V go here: Microsoft Office 2010 Deployment Kit for App-V

C) On the VM where you playing back the MS Office DIA package there should be no per-installed version of office if there is than:

Directories can't overlap Example. If your Pre-installed office is installed to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\...

Than when creating an Microsoft Office DIA package please install it to: C:\Program Files\MSofficeDIA


Note: If you have multiple Microsoft Office applications install (during DIA capture process) to separate directories example:

C:\Program FIles\MSVisioDIA and C:\Program Files\MSProjectDIA etc etc. 


Note2: It is possible to package MS Office 2010 using DIA and than use the "Extend" feature and add Visio or Project to the same package.

This is the preferred way of packaging multiple office installations for single package deployment, because they share common files.
