You can update a virtual application package that has been imported into Configuration Manager 2007 using one of the following methods:

  • Using the Virtual Application Package Update Wizard.

  • Editing the Source directory of an existing virtual application package.

Regardless of the method you use, you must first create a new version of the virtual application package source using the Microsoft Application Virtualization Sequencer. After the new version of the package has been created, you must configure the updated virtual application package so that it references the updated Manifest XML file. The updated virtual application package must also be copied to the applicable Configuration Manager 2007 distribution points and re-advertised to target computers.

Use one of the following procedures to update an existing virtual application package.
