AppV Softgrid Management Console error 0000C800

Launching the Application Virtualization Management Console gave Error Code 0000C800, Unexpected error occurred. I just wanted to import some newly sequenced apps, don’t need an error code like that 🙂

00 appv management console error 00000C800 - unexpected error occured

Solution

Browse to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft System Center App Virt Management Server\App Virt Management Service\SftMgmt.udl", right-click the .udl file and choose properties.

Test the connection, and bang .. SQL Server not found.

01 appv management console error 00000C800 - db connection failed

So I decided to restart some SQL Services, it’s late just restart them .. test environment, whatever 😉

02 appv management console error 00000C800 - SQL Server service restarted 03 appv management console error 00000C800 - SQL Server Browser started

Test connection again, succeeded!

04 appv management console error 00000C800 - db test connection succeeded

The App Virt Management Console starts again.

    Thank you so much, I have been working on this issue for hours and could not believe this is all it took.

    What a PAIN…. I had to enable Named Pipe and TCP on SQL config to make it work, otherwise – test connection to SQL as described above – failed.
