Sequencing SharePoint Designer 2007

November 23, 2010 by Ramesh

Issue Upon launching the sequenced version of Microsoft SharePoint Designer on Win7, the application repairs upon every launch

Eventviewer doesn't report back with any useful information for troubleshooting as well.


After the initial monitoring Phase, Install the SharePoint Designer to Q:\MSPD.2K7 (say)

While the monitoring phase still runs in the background,

Goto C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Office12\Office Setup Controller

Rename the existing "Setup.exe" to say "backup.setup.exe"

Copy "C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe" to "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Office12\Office Setup Controller" and rename "rundll32.exe" to "Setup.exe"

Delete the below registry hive as well

    Was browsing the net for some APpv content where I came across your site. I am actually really impresses with the simplicity of the site.
    I need some information from you since I am planning to move into Appv. If you can help me with some basic documentation on how to create the appv sequencer will be great. I also need to know if we can setup an appv environment at home. With this I can do some preparation also.

    Thanks and regards
