When Launching an App-V Application, This Message is Shown “Cannot Start”.

On the VDA, open PowerShell as an Admin and verify that the application information is listed by running command:

Get-AppvClientPackage -All

The command output shows a failure, and the message “The Microsoft Application Virtualization Service may not have been started. Verify that the service is running.

That may indicate that App-V is not enabled on the VDA.

Run command Enable-App-V and restart Desktop service.

NOTE: If VDAs are not persistent, run the command in master image and update the catalog.
