A virtualized application on a Microsoft App-V client fails to launch with Error Code: 2A-00002AF9

Symptoms

An application on an App-V client fails to launch with the following error:

The Application Virtualization Client could not launch application name.
No such host is known.
Error Code: xxxxxxx-xxxxxx2A-00002AF9

Cause

This issue can occur if the server name specified in the HREF attribute in the application .osd file is incorrect.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, perform the following steps:

1. On the App-V Management Server, open the application .osd file and scroll down to the following line:

<CODEBASE HREF="rtsp://servername:554/ApplicationDirectory/Application.sft"

2. Verify that the server name specified in the HREF attribute is correct.

Example: If the App-V Management Server name is Appv-Svr, the HREF attribute should look like the example below:
<CODEBASE HREF="rtsp://Appv-Svr:554/ApplicationDirectory/Application.sft"

3. Once the sever name is corrected in the application .osd file, open the Application Virtualization Client MMC snap-in on the App-V client and refresh the Publishing Server.

4. Launch the application on the App-V client.
