RunVirtual vs. AppVVE in SP3. Who wins?

With the introduction of RunVirtual as an official feature in App-V 5 SP3, the ability to use it for user targeted packages, and the ability of SP3 to set connection group members as optional, I started wondering whether it would be possible to create a connection group for all your IE (or Office) plugins and automatically launch IE (or any Office Application) inside the connectiongroup by using the RunVirtual Registry key, and still start IE (or any Office application) in a specific Virtual Environment by using the /AppVVE: command line hook switch. What I’m thinking of is a default connection group to start IE in for all standard (non conflicting) IE-plugins and separate packages for a specific Java versions. Similar with Office, one connection group for all standard (non conflicting) Office-plugins and separate packages for special plugins (plugins with conflicting versions, conflicting settings, etc.).
Will this work? What happens when an application is started and set to launch in two different Virtual Environments by a conflict between RunVirtual and the AppVVE parameter? Read More…
