Sequencer Command-Line Parameters

Updated: December 1, 2008

Applies To: Application Virtualization

You can use the following Application Virtualization (App-V) Sequencer parameters to sequence an application and to upgrade an existing virtual application by using a command line. For more information about sequencing an application by using a command line, see How to Sequence a New Application by Using the Command Line.

Sequencer Command-Line Parameters

/HELP or /?
Displays information about parameters that are available for using a command line to sequence applications.

/INSTALLPACKAGE or /I
Specifies the Windows Installer or a batch file that will be used to install an application so that it can be sequenced.

/INSTALLPATH or /P
Specifies the package root directory for an application.

/OUTPUTFILE or /O
Specifies the path and file name of the SPRJ file that will be generated.

/FULLLOAD or /F
Specifies whether all files will be contained in the primary feature block. If the /FULLLOAD parameter is specified on the command line, all of the associated application data is added to primary feature block. If the /FULLLOAD parameter is not specified on the command line, then none of the associated application data is added to the primary feature block.

/PACKAGENAME or /K
Specifies the package name that will be assigned to the sequenced application.

/BLOCKSIZE
Specifies the SFT file block size that will be used to stream the package to client computers. You can select one of the following values:

  • 4 KB

  • 16 KB

  • 32 KB

  • 64 KB

You should consider the size of the SFT file when you specify the block size. A file with a smaller block size takes longer to stream over the network but is less bandwidth-intensive. Files with larger block sizes use more network bandwidth.

/COMPRESSION
Specifies the method for compressing the SFT file that will be streamed to the client.

/MSI or /M
Specifies whether a Windows Installer for the sequenced application should be created.

/DEFAULT
Specifies the default SPRJ file that will be used when creating a virtual application package. This file is used as the .sprj template when the application is sequenced for the first time.

/UPGRADE
Specifies the path and file name of the SPRJ file that will be upgraded.

/DECODEPATH
Specifies the directory on the sequencing computer where the files associated with the sequenced application package are installed. Use one of the following formats when specifying the directory:

  • /decodepath:Q:

  • /decodepath:Q:.

  • /decodepath:”Q:.”

  • /decodepath:”Q:”
