How to deploy App-V 5.0 Packages Using Electronic Software Distribution

Updated: November 1, 2012

Applies To: Application Virtualization 5.0

If you plan to use an electronic software distribution (ESD) solution to deploy virtual applications, it is important to understand the factors that go into and are affected by that decision. This topic describes the benefits of using an ESD-based scenario and provides information about the publishing and package streaming methods that you will need to consider as you proceed with your deployment.

Whichever ESD solution you use, you must be familiar with the requirements of your particular solution.

When using an ESD-based scenario, you have the following choices for publishing the application to the clients:

  • Stand-alone Windows Installer. The Windows Installer (.msi) file contains the associated App-V 5.0 package file information use to configure a package. The Windows Installer file also copies the required package files to the client because this scenario does not use a server.

  • PowerShell. You can use PowerShell to deploy virtualized applications. For more information about using PowerShell and App-V 5.0 see Administering App-V using PowerShell.

  • Deploying clients. You can use an ESD to deploy App-V 5.0 clients. You should refer to the associated documentation available with the ESD you are using for more information.

To deploy App-V 5.0 Packages Using Electronic Software Distribution

  1. Install the App-V 5.0 sequencer on a computer in your environment. For more information about installing the sequencer see How to Install the Sequencer.

  2. Use the App-V 5.0 to create virtual application. For information about creating a virtual application see Creating and Managing App-V 5.0 Virtualized Applications.

  3. After you have created the virtual application deploy the package using your ESD solution.
