How to Revert Extension Points From an App-V 5.0 Package to an App-V 4.6 SP2 Package for a Specific User

Updated: November 1, 2012

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 revert an App-V 5.0 package to the App-V file format using the user configuration file.

To revert a package

  1. Ensure that App-V 4.6 SP2 package is published to the users but the FTAs and shortcuts have been assumed by App-V 5.0 package using the following migration method, How to Migrate Extension Points From an App-V 4.6 SP2 Package to App-V 5.0 for a Specific User.

    In the userConfiguration section of the deployment configuration file for the converted package, to set the policy, make the following update to the userConfiguration section: ManagingAuthority TakeoverExtensionPointsFrom46="false" PackageName=<Package ID>

  2. From an elevated command prompt, type:

    PS>Publish-AppVClientPackage $pkg –DynamicUserConfigurationPath <path to user configuration file>

  3. Perform a publishing refresh, or wait for the next scheduled publishing refresh for the App-V 4.6 SP2. Open the application using FTAs or shortcuts. The Application should now open using App-V 4.6 SP2.

    If you do not need the App-V 5.0 package anymore, you can unpublish the App-V 5.0 package and the extension points will automatically revert to App-V 4.6.
