How to Revert Extension Points from an App-V 5.0 Package to an App-V 4.6 SP2 Package For All Users on a Specific Computer

Updated: November 1, 2012

Applies To: Application Virtualization 5.0

Use the following procedure to revert extension points from an App-V 5.0 package to the App-V 4.6 SP2 file format using the deployment configuration file.

To revert a package

  1. Ensure that App-V 4.6 SP2 package is published to the users but the FTAs and shortcuts have been assumed by App-V 5.0 package using the following migration method, How to Migrate Extension Points From an App-V 4.6 SP2 Package to a Converted App-V 5.0 Package for All Users on a Specific Computer.

    In the userConfiguration section of the deployment configuration file for the converted package, to set the policy, make the following update to the userConfiguration section: ManagingAuthority TakeoverExtensionPointsFrom46="false" PackageName=<Package ID>

  2. From an elevated command prompt, type:

    PS>Set-AppvClientPackage $pkg –DynamicDeploymentConfiguration <path to deployment configuration file>

    PS>Publish-AppVClientPackage $pkg –DynamicUserConfigurationType useDeploymentConfiguration

  3. Perform a publishing refresh, or wait for the next scheduled publishing refresh for the App-V 4.6 SP2 package.

    Open the application using FTAs or shortcuts. The Application should now open using App-V 4.6 SP2.

    noteNote
    If you do not need the App-V 5.0 package anymore, you can unpublish the App-V 5.0 package and the extension points will automatically revert to App-V 4.6.
