I recently ran into this issue. In a package I created some shortcuts to a networkshare.
During sequencing this was no problem but after publishing, the shortcuts did not appear. After a manual publishing action I received the following error;
Publish-AppvClientPackage : Application Virtualization Service failed to complete requested operation.
Operation attempted: Publish AppV Package.
Windows Error: 0x5 – Access is denied
Error module: Shared Component. Internal error detail: 8DC0222500000005.
Please consult AppV Client Event Log for more details.
After various attempts to troubleshoot and fix this (like upgrading to a more recent version of the App-V client) I finally found a solution for this.
Put the following command before your shortcut: cmd /c start
So your shortcut will look like this;
cmd /c start ” \\Servername\Apps\Appname\Progname.exe”
