Usefull Application Virtualization support tools

While waiting for Microsoft to release the SDK for Appication V. it’s nice to have a basic knowledge of the existing tools.

SFTMIME.EXE:

Used to control and configure the client. I really urge you to take a look at the complete list of commands and parameters at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc817090.aspx.

SFTMIME can be used to configure the client, query for packages, settings, delete apps, load app and more.

Example on how to configure a server connection:
SFTMIME CONFIGURE SERVER:ctsccm /NAME "Coretech App V server"/HOST ctsccm /PORT 554 /TYPE RTSP /REFRESH ON

Example, queries for all configured servers:
SFTMIME QUERY OBJ:Server

Example, removes all icons, shortcuts and packages from the cache for all users:
SFTMIME remove obj:app /Global /Complete

SFTtray.exe

This utility is used to preload the cache, launch applications and refreshing the client. It dosn’t have the same rich functionality as SFTMIME but can be very usefull i many different scenarios.

Example, first performs refresh and the loads all applications into the cache:
SFTtray /Refreshall
SFTtray /loadall

SFTList.exe

Is used to modify the log level.

SFTlist.exe /resetlog /verboselog /Linfolog (information level) /warninglog (default, warning level)

SFTSequencer.exe

Commandline interface used when sequencing applications – for more information check http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc817161.aspx
