Removing the “Revert to clean state” warning on a Microsoft App-V 4.6 sequencer.

Before I start, I should point out I dont recommend you do this. This is just a how to, if you are like me and ended up with a wrongfully dirty sequencer due to user error (not mine, eherm!) and no snapshot available this may save you some hassle.

When sequencing an application on a “dirty” sequencer, you will receive the following warning as part of the preparation of the client for the sequencing job:

“Package previously created or updated on this computer.” with a resolution of “Revent to clean state.”

If you really want to clear this warning, and are confident your sequencer is in fact clean do the following:

  • open regedit
  • browse to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeMicrosoftSoftGrid4.5Sequencer”
  • (“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftSoftGrid4.5Sequencer” on an x86 machine)
  • delete the Readybit Dword:

Now just click refresh and its as if you never made a mistake in the first place… (it wasnt me, honest).
