Install the App-V Sequencer
- Windows 10, version 1607
Use the App-V Sequencer to convert Win32 applications into virtual packages for deployment to user devices. Those devices must be running the App-V client to allow users to interact with virtual applications.
The App-V Sequencer is included in the Windows 10 Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK).
The computer that will run the sequencer must not have the App-V client enabled on it. As a best practice, choose a computer with the same hardware and software configurations as the computers that will run the virtual applications. The sequencing process is resource intensive, so make sure that the computer that runs the Sequencer has plenty of memory, a fast processor, and a fast hard drive.
To install the App-V Sequencer:
Go to Download the Windows ADK.
Click or press the Get Windows ADK for Windows 10 button on the page to start the ADK installer. Make sure that Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) Sequencer is selected during the installation.
To open the Sequencer, from the Start menu, select Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) Sequencer .
