App-V with AppLocker executable rules overview

Applies to: Windows 7

This video demonstrates how you can create AppLocker executable policies for virtual applications. AppLocker is a new feature of Windows 7 that allows administrators to define policies that can allow or deny a user's ability to run or install executable, MSI, or script files. Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) separates the application from the operating system to prevent application conflicts and enable the ability to run multiple versions of an application of the same desktop. Virtual applications can be delivered in many ways - streaming by assigning applications to a user, delivering to computers through Configuration Manager, or by using file streaming from removable media. Using App-V and AppLocker together ensures that an application will respect the policies you define, regardless of how the application is delivered or what format it takes (physical or virtual).
