When the SQL Server is on the same machine as the App-V Management Server (formerly known as the VAS Server), the App-V Management Server Service doesn’t start after a reboot.
Solve this by adding the MSSQLSERVER as dependency to App-V service in the registry. (Use MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS when using SQL Server Express edition). Name the new string DependOnService and value MSSQLSERVER or MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS in the hive HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\AppVirtServer:
To finalize, add a DWORD named DelayedAutostart with value 1 in the same hive:
Reboot the server, the Application Virtualization Management Server service should start (with a slight delay).
