  • Before you can run the UNPUBLISH PACKAGE command, the package must already have been added to the Application Virtualization Client.

  • To use GLOBAL , UNPUBLISH PACKAGE must be run as local Administrator; otherwise, only ClearApp permission is needed.

  • Using UNPUBLISH PACKAGE with GLOBAL removes any global file types and shortcuts for the package. CLEAR is not applicable.

  • Using UNPUBLISH PACKAGE without GLOBAL removes the user shortcuts and file types for the package and, if CLEAR is set, also removes user settings and stops background loads under the user’s context.

  • UNPUBLISH PACKAGE works on applications from the same package name or GUID that was used as the source ID for ADD , EDIT , and PUBLISH PACKAGE .

  • UNPUBLISH PACKAGE always clears all the user settings, shortcuts, and file types regardless of the use of the /CLEAR switch.
