App-V 5.0 - Trying to make a virtual printer installed locally - Communicate with a virtual application
Posted on 2014-02-26
I am attempting to use APP-V (ThinAPP is available to me as well.) To virtualize Hyland's Unity Client, to connect to Onbase (ECM tool).
The application installs a virtual printer - that outputs images that are automatically picked up by the application, and an Upload window appears.
I realize that Printer cannot be virtualized, so I have it being installed via GPO at machine creation (We're running Non-persistent desktops in Vmware View 5.3).
So what I am looking for - is any ideas on how to make the Virtual Application's Virtual Printer listener (provided via a .DLL) either listen to a non virtualized folder - or to get it to listen to a folder internal to the application, being that I can modify the spooling Folder.
So far it appears that the spooling works correctly, but the application seems to be unaware of it, whereas in a local physical install, it works great.
Happy to clarify.
