This may be intersting to those that have longed for Microsoft to provide a solution to virtualising IE in App-V. If you download the latest IE preview from the Internet Explorer Developer Channel, you will find it is packaged with App-V and bundles in a version of the App-V client!

In fact, it fails to install if you have the App-V client already installed (although you can extract the IEDC.appv file and publish it to a regular App-V client, the only other pre-req is to have IE11 installed).


I’m told that Microsoft have no plans to release IE in App-V format for production use however!
