Whilst compiling my guide to building an App-V lab, I started gathering up the latest hotfixes currently available.  These fix some pretty critical issues yet there are many out there who aren’t aware of their existence, so I thought this warranted a post of it’s own as it applies to people operating production environments as well as those interested in setting up a test lab.

The patches are cumulative, but not each patch covers all of the components. In the end there are three separate downloads you need to apply and I suggest you use them all.

Server:

Sequencer:

This one is a complete installer rather than an MSP patch.  No need to install the RTM version beforehand, in fact the updated version will prompt you to uninstall it first!

Client:

Aaron Parker also maintains a nifty table listing the latest versions available here.

  1. Hi!

    Sorry, this isn’t strictly to do with the article, but can you tell me if App-V 5 sequenced packages can be delivered from an App-V 4 server?

    Thanks in advance

    1. It is possible, but only with a customised publishing/deployment solution, perhaps based on PowerShell scripts – you cannot install both the App-V 4 & 5 full infrastructure on the same server according to this: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/2edbc877-0e12-472a-84fc-832e90dd1993/separate-mgmt-streaming-server-for-appv-46-en-5-packages?forum=mdopappv
