  1. It's time for a better sequencer with more power and more intelligence.

    The App-V 5.x sequencer is missing a lot of power that could really help the admins of the world. It's time to give it an overhaul, and include some missing features!

    * Ability to remove .Net runtimes that were packaged with the application, possibly by accident or without control of the admin.

    * At least an option to compile .net code so JIT compilation isn't used.

    * View and edit all com objects, potentially with tips to help you identify components that might have a big impact on performance.

    * Recommendations to remove any known file/registry data that truely isn't…

    • App-v: syncing with publishing server (sync-appvpublishingserver) should update also current running package

      App-v: syncing with publishing server (sync-appvpublishingserver) should update also current running packages, so that the new version of the package is published to the user and used the next time the user launches the package.

        • edit shortcut problem

          AppV5 shortcut problem when editing.
          After importing package to AppV5 mgmt. console I import edited configuration to package (example changed shortcuts icon or target). After importing new config I edit shortcut (ex. parameter) within mgmt GUI. Mgmt resets some changes made within import xml (like target and icon).

          Is this possible to fix that gui shortcut edit only applies changes not resetting shortcuts properties?

          • Deploy App-v packages using Intune MDM or an Azure Streaming Service

            I notice there is now CSP support for this in Win10 1709 so MDM developers can implement the functionality in third party MDM solutions. However there is no sign of any support in Microsoft intune yet?

            Or how about an Azure App-v SaaS offering so you can stream from the cloud

            • Scriptrunner silent

              Add optional argument to let the scriptrunner run fully silent. I do not want to bother the user with unnecessary popups.

                  • Service Pack 1 for App V application publishing?

                    A customer of mine is looking to have a direct conversation with the PG for App V Application Publishing. If that's an option, contact me directly and we'll work to set that up.

                    The concern from the customer is the lifecycle for Version 5.1. With 5.1 SP0 in extended support through Jan 2023 is there a service pack coming down the line that will bring the product into mainstream support? Customer is aware that 5.2 is coming and will be integrated into the OS.

                    • App-V 5.x allow pathpassthru be optional per package and not global

                      App-V v4.6 has the ability to leverage native registry access, but the App-V virtual registry bubble writing takes precedence (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2750869/en-us). With App-v 5.x, there is a change in how App-V handles writing to native registry. The change is a global workstation change that if you modify the global settings to specify a registry path to be written to in the native registry, it will apply to all App-V packages and will take precedence in any App-V package virtual registry bubble edits (https://www.vmadmin.co.uk/microsoft/88-app-v/418-app-v-5-x-write-to-the-native-registry).

                      Would be nice if App-V 5 allows the similar capabilities at a per package…

                      • Add or update Services

                        We have services that are ran as service accounts and not the local system. Since App-v only monitors localsystem account. these services are not captured and cannot be easily added. We need the ability to add a service and login account when necessary since App-V sequencer does not capture Non Localsystem.

                            It would be nice to have a landing page for APPV 5.1 (and possibly older version 5.0 or 4.6) that has the latest versions available and, if possible, links to the pages for downloading the latest hotfixes for the components (client, server, sequencer).

                            • Ability to resize the Exclusion Items dialog in Sequencer Options

                              Although a minor change, it would be very useful to be able to resize (or at least maximise) the Exclusion Items dialog in the Sequencer. Often the entries are so long that it won't show both the "Exclude Path" and the "Resolves To" entries in the standard window. A scrollbar is provided - but it would be easier if you could see both paths in their entirety.

                                      Bring back Office 2016 volume license version support like there was for Office 2013. We need to support Office 2016 VL and O365 in App-V on desktop and RDS for the foreseeable future. We are moving from Office 2010 & 2013 this summer and our Citrix environment is going to be stuck on 2013 unless we decide to use some sort of unsupported method to get Office 2016 VL to work in App-V. Sadly even O365 2016 Viso does not work on RDS in App-V. All this stuff needs to get sorted out ASAP!

                                      • App-V Sync Notification (customize the message the user sees/move the sync before the user can click apps)

                                        We request to change the way the App-V Publishing Refresh UI notifications are presented to end-users and also mitigate a number of user experience errors generated by the fact that applications can be clicked and opened while the Sync is in progress, causing multiple errors that are confusing the user.

                                        The improvements we propose are the following:

                                        A. Move the App-V Publishing Refresh UI (Sync) prior loading the user session / prior loading Windows shells (e.g. preferably to something similar to GPO update at logon time)
                                        OR/AND
                                        B. Change the wording of this sync popup or allow organizations to change/customize…

                                        • to fix SCCM / AppV integration.

                                          - Currently SCCM doesnt unpublish an AppV application when it is in an uninstall collection
                                          - SCCM client doesnt perform any AppV action as soon as it encounters for example a MSI installation that requires a reboot
