Managing App-V Virtual Environments

AdminStudio 2020 R2 SP1 | 20.01 | Application Manager

Edition:Application Manager is included with AdminStudio Professional and Enterprise Editions.

In Application Manager, you can create App-V virtual environments for App-V 5.0 packages for both Microsoft App‑V Servers and Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Servers.

App-V virtual environments enable deployed virtual applications to share the same file system and registry on client computers. This means that unlike standard virtual applications, these applications can share data with each other.

Tip:Using virtual environments to group dependent packages together in App-V 5.0 is similar to the Dynamic Suite Composition feature used with App-V 4.x packages.

Virtual environments are created or modified on client computers when the application is installed or when clients next evaluate their installed applications. You can order these applications so that when multiple applications attempt to modify the same file system or registry value on a client computer, the application with the highest order takes precedence.
