Updated: December 8, 2014

Applies To: Application Virtualization 5.0, Application Virtualization 5.0 SP1, Application Virtualization 5.0 SP2, Application Virtualization 5.0 SP3

Use the following procedure to publish an App-V 5.0 package. Once you publish a package, computers that are running the App-V 5.0 client can access and run the applications in that package.

The ability to enable only administrators to publish or unpublish packages (described below) is supported starting in App-V 5.0 SP3.

To publish an App-V 5.0 package

  1. In the App-V 5.0 Management console. right-click the name of the package to be published, and select Publish.

  2. Review the Status column to verify that the package has been published and is now available. If the package is available, the status published is displayed.

    If the package is not published successfully, the status unpublished is displayed, along with error text that explains why the package is not available.

To enable only administrators to publish or unpublish packages

  1. Navigate to the following Group Policy Object node:

    Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > System > App-V > Publishing.

  2. Enable the Require publish as administrator Group Policy setting.

    To alternatively use PowerShell to set this item, see To enable only administrators to publish or unpublish packages.
