When u have an application that starts from a networkshare and uses local files you could encounter the error¬†“0xc0000142” after sequencing.
The application “Planbord” in this case has an App-V package that has several DLL-files and a link to a networkshare located executable. The Package works fine when y0u start it from the sequencer. After deployment on a Citrix server the following error occoured:

SCRN 12-sep 10.42 0000
In the App-V event log you will see this event error:

“The virtual application ‘\\xxxx.xxxx.lan\Apps$\xxxx\xxxxxxxx\Programs\planbord.exe’ could not be started because the App-V Subsystem ‘Virtual Shell’ could not be initialized. {error: 0x8DC02125-0x40”

This is because the machine where you are running your App-V package from has no rights on the networkshare. The App-V 5 virtual system needs these rights I presume.
Just give the computer account (for example all Citrix servers) read/list rights on the file share.

note: The same package in App-V 4 did not need these extra rights.

But there was no way to remove the language packs. There was no Change or Uninstall button in the control panel. I’ve only needed the English one. so I wanted to install all the other ones.
