Packaging URL to launch Chrome

What might be easier is to pull the original .appv you have for Chrome back into your sequencer and when you get to the "Run" part, simply edit your Chrome to point to the URL you want and then save out the package. Do you publish via a publishing server/console or another means? Do you use AD groups as well?

Packaging URL to launch Chrome was created by cpl_eyeball
I am new to AppV 5.0 and am struggling with a simple package. I need to create a package (call it ABC) which consists of one shortcut "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\Chrome.exe" " www.google.com ". The physical machine does not have Chrome installed on it. There is an already sequenced Google Chrome package which I also publish. I created a Connection Group for Chrome and ABC packages. When I publish both packages and click on the shortcut to launch Chrome, I get a message which says "Missing Shortcut - Windows is searching for chrome.exe. To locate the file yourself, click Browse"
After about 10 seconds, another message pops up saying: the item 'chrome.exe' that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly. Nearest match based on size, date, and type: C:\ProgramData\App-V\GUID.....\chrome.exe. Do you want to fix ths shortcut to point to this target or do you just want to delete it?
3 buttons are presented: Fix it, Delete It, and Cancel.

So what exactly am I doing wrong for my ABC package to be able to launch published Google Chrome?

RESOLVED: Connection Group was not required at all. Added an <AppPath> to chrome.exe in the DeploymentConfig.xml file
