Installation Files Page
Use the Installation Files page to specify the installation files that were used to create the virtual application package specified on the Select Package page of this wizard. If you created a virtual application package that contains multiple applications, you should copy all required installation files to a single folder on the computer running the Microsoft Application Virtualization Sequencer.
This page contains the following elements:
Original Installation Files
Click Browse to specify the installation files that were originally used to create the virtual application package. The parent directory you specify should be saved locally to the computer running the Sequencer and must contain all required installation files or subfolders that contain the installation files. The installation files can be contained in the parent folder or in any of the subfolders of the specified parent folder.
Files installed on local system
Click Browse to specify the installation files that have been installed locally on the computer running the Sequencer. You can only select this option if the application installation files have been installed to the application’s default location.
The default installation location you provide depends on the following conditions:
The package root specified when the package was originally created.
The installation location specified in the Windows Installer when the package was originally created.
The default application installation path.
For example, if the package root specified is Q:\Office12 and during installation, the default installation location is changed from C:\Program Files\Office12 to Q:\Office12, then the path specified during dehydration must be C:\Program Files\Office 12.
If the package root specified is Q:\Microsoft and during installation, the default installation location is changed from C:\Program Files\Office12 to Q:\Microsoft\Office12, then the path specified during dehydration must be C:\Program Files.
When you create a package using a package accelerator, each file in the package, for example Q:\Office12\file.txt is found on the local computer by replacing the package root Q:\Office12 with the default location specified when the Package Accelerator was created, for example, C:\Program Files\Office12. In the previous example, the file should be located in C:\Program Files\Office12\file.txt.
