How to Install the Client by Using the Command Line
Updated: September 7, 2010
Applies To: Application Virtualization
The topics in this section include procedures to install either the Application Virtualization (App-V) Desktop Client or the App-V Client for Remote Desktop Services (formerly Terminal Services) by using either setup.exe or setup.msi. Administrative rights are required to run either setup program.
You can use optional command-line parameters to apply specific configuration settings to the App-V client during the installation. For more information about using parameters, see Application Virtualization Client Installer Command-Line Parameters. If you have applied registry settings to a computer before deploying a client—for example, by using Group Policy—these settings are retained and any additional command line parameters are applied. Command line parameter values will replace any existing value for the same setting.
|When you install the App-V client to use with a read-only cache, for example with a VDI server implementation, you must set the AUTOLOADTARGET parameter to NONE to prevent the client from trying to update applications when the cache is read-only.|
For more information about setting these parameter values after installation, see How to Configure the App-V Client Registry Settings by Using the Command Line (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=169355) in the Application Virtualization (App-V) Operations Guide.
|If a configuration setting on the user’s computer depends on the client installation path, note that the Application Virtualization (App-V) 4.5 client copies its installation files to a different folder than previous versions did. By default, a new installation of the App-V 4.5 client will copy its installation files to the \Program Files\Microsoft Application Virtualization Client folder. If an earlier version of the client is already installed, running the App-V 4.5 client installer will perform an upgrade of the existing client using the existing installation folder.|

|For App-V version 4.6 and later, when the App-V client is installed, SFTLDR.DLL is copied to the Windows\system32 directory. If the App-V client is installed on a 64-bit system, SFTLDR_WOW64.DLL is copied to the Windows\SysWOW64 directory.|
