Over in Berlin a little event called TechEd took place and gave everyone the first look at the App-V SP1 Sequencer. Now if you have never seen the 4.6 SP1 sequencer than i would highly recommend watching Chris Green’s session on the 4.6 SP1 Sequencer, which also demonstrates the new features in the 4.6 SP1 sequencer and why these add improvements to saving you time and effort in your day to day operations. We will have more blog posts around this as the year develops.
Ever wondered how Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) can simplify and accelerate Office deployments? Learn about the investments made in App-V 4.6 and Office 2010, and best practices for deploying and maintaining Office 2010 on App-V. We will arm you with the information needed to successfully sequence, deploy, customize and maintain virtual Office.
VIR304 – How to Create App-V Packages More Efficiently With the New App-V 4.6 SP1 Sequencer
This session will educate you on how to leverage the new Sequencer enhancements that are included with App-V 4.6 SP1. We will walk you through the sequencing process from beginning to end, including how to define dependencies between packages, and how to set up automation using the command-line sequencer. You will see how the Sequencer can help you configure your workstation VM to get up and running in minutes, as well as how to use diagnostic information to successfully package applications to run in a virtual environment. We will also give you a first look at exciting new technology that lets you create App-V packages directly from setup media, without the need to install the application. This session will help you understand the new capabilities in the Sequencer and how they can help you package applications more efficiently.
This demo will show you an end-to-end view of Microsoft Application Virtualization, from packaging to deploying applications. It will also include a preview of new upcoming features for App-V, and help you learn how to avoid some pitfalls when deploying virtual applications.
