With the introduction of System Center Configuration Manager R2 comes the integration between Application Virtualization 4.5 and Configuration Manager 2007. This Guide will go through the installation and configuration.
How does Configuration Manager 2007 intergrate with the App V. client
- SFTMIME commands are used to manage Virtual Application publishing delivery to the App. V client cache.
- The OverrideURL registry value is configured to direct the client to the correct Distribution Point.
- Applications are launched using the SFTtray.exe command.
- WMI is used to report on the status of the installation process.
Steps to configure Virtual Application Support
Be aware Application Virtualization support in Configuration Manager and "normal" Application Virtualization dosn't go hand i hand. When you enable the support with Configuration Manager, the client will automatically remove all previously cached appications.
