DESCRIPTION

The New-AppvPackageAccelerator cmdlet generates a package accelerator object. It accepts an existing Application Virtualization (App-V) 5.0 package file along with the appropriately installed files or installation media. The cmdlet then generates a package accelerator file.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Create a package accelerator

PS C:\> New-AppvPackageAccelerator -AppvPackageFilePath "C:\MyPackages\Package1\Package1.appv" -Installer "C:\MyPackages\Package1" -OutputPath "C:\Output\packages\Package1.cab"

This command creates a package accelerator using an installer folder containing, for example, MSI installers.

Example 2: Create a package accelerator with instruction sheet

PS C:\> New-AppvPackageAccelerator -AppvPackageFilePath "C:\MyPackages\Package1\Package1.appv" -InstalledFilesPath "C:\Program Files\Package1InstallFolder" -OutputPath "C:\Output\packages\Package1.cab" -AcceleratorDescriptionFilePath "C:\MyPackages\Package1\Package1Description.rtf"

This command creates a package accelerator and inserts an instruction sheet on how to accelerate package.
