About Client Configuration Settings

Updated: December 8, 2014

Applies To: Application Virtualization 5.0, Application Virtualization 5.0 SP1, Application Virtualization 5.0 SP2, Application Virtualization 5.0 SP3

The Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) 5.0 client stores its configuration in the registry. You can gather some useful information about the client if you understand the format of data in the registry. You can also configure many client actions by changing registry entries. This topic lists the App-V 5.0 Client configuration settings and explains their uses. You can use PowerShell to modify the client configuration settings. For more information about using PowerShell and App-V 5.0 see Administering App-V by Using PowerShell.
