Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization 7.1.301


After following the process to virtualize and package the application using ZAV, the virtualized application will launch and then immediately close. No errors in the log files.


This usually happens when the virtualized package is considerably large in size (200MB+).

To prevent the virtualized application from failing, uncheck "Compress Output Executable" option on the Settings page.

Additional Information

This is a good troubleshooting step, that should be taken regardless of size, and for other issues that arise during the virtualization process, and is applicable in every version of ZAV.
