Virtual Apps! But how?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have successfully deployed Windows 7 and software. Now I want to make virtual apps but I don't have a clue how to do that. I have installed SCCM 2007 R2 and virtual app streaming is enabled. What do I have to do next? When I want to create a "New Virtual Application Package" the wizard needs "a manifest XML file". Where can I get this file? Do I have to install anything else on the clien or on the SCCM Server?

 

Thank you for your help!

I'm in the same boat trying to understand how app-v integrates into SCCM - only config I am seeing is relating to: Enabling the DP for streaming

And deploy the App-v client to the SCCM clients

 

What about the SCCM server itself does it require any additional App-V server installed but is managed via the SCCM console? Or is the functionality built into SCCM?

What additional pre-reqs, requirements or configs are there on the SCCM Primary box - other than the App-V client being installed on workstations?

 

I understand a sequencer environment will need to be available separately for the apps to be packaged - which are imported into SCCM for it to then have the Virtual App SCCM wrap applied to it.

 

Could someone please clarify and not post a link which takes me to a bunch of white papers..

You do not need an extra App-V server if you use the traditional SCCM method to distribute App-V sequences. It is managed via the SCCM console, using the xml-file which you get from the App-V sequence. You also need to enable "Allow virtual application package advertisement" under Site Management -> Site -> Site Settings -> Client Agents -> Advertised Programs Client Agent.

And as for the sequence environment, you will need a virtual machine which you can "revert" everytime you create a new App-V sequence.
