Sequencer Hardware and Software Requirements

Updated: December 1, 2008

Applies To: Application Virtualization

This topic describes the minimum recommended hardware and software requirements for the computer running the Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) Sequencer.

Before you install the Sequencer and after you sequence each application, you must restore a clean operating system image to the sequencing computer. You can use one of the following methods to restore the computer running the Sequencer:

  • Reformat the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.

  • Restore the hard drive on the computer running the Sequencer image by using another disk-imaging software.

The following list outlines the recommended hardware requirements for running the App-V Sequencer.

Hardware Requirements

  • Processor—Intel Pentium III, 1 GHz (32-bit or 64-bit). The sequencing process is a single-threaded process and does not take advantage of dual processors.

  • Memory—1 GB or above, 2 GB recommended.

  • Hard Disk—40 gigabyte (GB) hard disk space with a minimum of 15 GB available hard disk space. We recommend that you have at least three times the hard disk space that the application you are sequencing requires.

    noteNote
    Sequencing requires heavy disk usage. A fast disk speed can decrease the sequencing time.

Software Requirements

The following list outlines the supported operating systems for running the Sequencer.
