The digital transformation has changed the way users work across a new generation of devices. If in the past, traditional computers were the only gateway to the digital world for both enterprise and traditional users, the mobile revolution has changed the way people access to digital information: smartphones and tablets have become, more and more, a companion to traditional desktop apps. However, despite this transformation, there are still millions of desktop solutions on the market and the enterprise-ready devices with a mouse and a keyboard are still the most effective way to achieve full productivity.

In the latest Windows Insiders update there is a new OS-level switch that allows users to block installation of Win32 apps outside of the Windows Store. This means your MSI/EXE setups may no longer install for users that have this option enabled.
Productive virtual application debugging requires an understanding of the basic fundamentals of debugging compiled software code. For this part of my series on debugging virtual applications, I will be focusing exclusively on these fundamentals. If you are already familiar with these concepts, please allow me to quickly recap these to those readers which may be either not familiar, or only somewhat and looking to solidify these concepts.
Document your repackaging process and save time on package maintenance operations and training new packagers, by using the Repackager Assistant.
Recently I have been seeing many queries regarding shortcut icon not displayed after publishing a virtualized App-V 5.x package. The answer would be quite simple. But I would like to demonstrate it with a simple example so that it can shed some light.
Take full control over your MSI tables with Advanced Installer's built-in editor. Extend the easy to use options from our GUI, and customize your package just as you need to.
For many application packagers, virtual application sequencers, and general IT pros, the concept of actual “debugging” can take on many meanings. Often the words “troubleshooting” and “debugging” are interspersed – especially when reading articles and blogs dealing with the topic of trying to dissect what may be occurring when a virtual application is not functioning as expected. When we speak of the word “debugging” in the context of its meaning with regards to programming and compiled software code, it is simply the dissection and reverse engineering of binaries to determine the root cause of an issue or basically “find the bug” in the code.
Automation is never enough. Save time, eliminate human errors and streamline your build process with the predefined support for build events from Advanced Installer.
Industry expert Rory Monaghan, in collaboration with Jurjen van Leeuwen and Ruben Spruijt, released their Application Virtualization Smackdown 2016 whitepaper in early November '16.
Know your users, understand how they use your application and improve it to fit their requirements. Get live insights on how many unique users launch your application daily and how many times they launch it.
I guess every ConfigMgr Admin can confirm that getting the right LogFiles into CMTrace can sometimes be pretty challenging, due to the huge amount of actual LogFiles. I'm no difference here and in the past years, while troubleshooting ConfigMgr client side issues, I noticed that I always did the same repetitive tasks:
The installation is the first experience your users have, before using your application. ICEs help make sure your installer is compliant with the Windows standards for application packaging and deployment.
Application Packagers usually spend some time in testing the virtualized applications in a standalone machine to confirm that the package is working fine and is issue free. In order to test the virtualized package using .appv, we need to open up a Powershell window as an administrator, and type in some Powershell commands. Though the commands are simple, they often require some time, which I feel can be reduced drastically. There are quite a few tools that provide options to test the packages without any need to do manual work, but not all customers want to use them in their environment. Hence, an idea to use a simple trick to install the App-V virtual packages in a single click without any need to open Powershell and type commands in a standalone machine. This can be achieved by a simple registry tweak to publish the virtual packages either globally, or to a user by right clicking an appv file, and using the context menu shortcut option.
Simplify deployment for your add-in users with a Windows 10 compliant package. Put an end to support calls for solving add-in registration problems or enterprise deployment related issues.
Windows 10 Anniversary edition brought App-V as a built-in feature in the OS, accessible to all Enterprise users without any additional costs (until now you had to purchase the MDOP).
