App-V Observations


For those that don’t know, App-V is a great way of rolling out applications to users without actually having to get the app to install on the local machine. Each app is run in a ‘sandbox’ and streamed down to the computer as needed. User settings and program changes are stored in Application Data so it seems like users have complete permission over the installation.

From Microsoft’s blurb:

Application virtualization can best be described as running an application using a workstation or Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server without installing the application on the client operating system. Instead of loading files into the program files directory and adding entries into the local registry, the application is loaded into an isolated virtual environment on the client.

So, what do you think ?
