APP-V Client TroubleshootingThere are links at the bottom for more troubleshooting.

1st things firstThe first thing you should always check is the log:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Application Virtualization Client\sftlog.txt
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Application Virtualization Client\sftlog.txt
They will tell you lots of information. You can also change the logging level to get more information.

How to repair an application
Repair - When you repair an application, you remove any custom user settings and restore the default settings. This action does not change or delete shortcuts or file type associations, and it does not remove the application from cache.
If you run across this error in the App-V Sequencer check the Event Log for AppV - Sequencer - Operational.
You will probably find that the sequencer was not stopping a service (in my case it was the windows update service). It will show as "stopping".
Set the service to disabled and then reboot. That should fix it.
