App-V Application deployment strategy
What benefits have you seen using the AdminStudio tool over native App-V sequencer in your workplace ? Any downsides ?
Re: App-V Application deployment strategy
The process works always from a MSI perspective.
EXE -> IRP -> ISM -> MSI ->APPV
if using the repackager, you will have an option to repackage to App-V (or any other virtual solution) but the process keeps the same.
if building a MSI from scratch , same thing..
if using the AAC , same thing.. that's the beauty of using AdminStudio.
There is no need for the Sequencer anymore.
remarks: If your repackaged MSI is not a good candidate to convert directly to App-V , you will get an advice to repackage the MSI first.
Reasons: Com+, Drivers, Kernel Services, Conditionalized components, features, custom actions etc..
The AAC will take care of this.
Hope this info helps.
