Both the connection groups viz. per-user and Global Publishing are no longer supported. This implies that now the applications in the connection group can only be the one which are either published as Per-User or the one which are published as Global. A lot of fuss was surrounding around APP-V engineers regarding the reduced application support on APP-V 5.0 SP1 as compared to the earlier versions of APP-V especially 4.6. But as SP2 evolved, things started to change and a good percentage of applications started working with APP-V 5.0. Recently, Microsoft released two new hot fixes, HF-4 and HF-5 which solved almost every single issue that was not addressed in the versions prior to it.
Some of the salient features of HF-4 and HF-5 that may be of interest for the enthusiasts’ are-
- Improved Deployment Speed:
A new protocol called SMB or server message box has been introduced which has made publishing of APP-V application seamless.
- Write access to virtual file system:
This system has been enabled as against the earlier versions where any write operation in the virtual file system could be done through Primary Virtual Access Directory or PVAD
- Support for Network related shortcuts:
Executables which are located on a network are now supported as they no longer require a user to log-in in a computer account.
- Enhanced Package Conversion ratios:
It means that if someone wants to migrate from earlier versions of APP-V to APP-V 5.0, the chances of package conversion has increased.
Some of the features that are incorporated in HF-5 are:
- Applicable only for APP-V client:
This implies that this update is client feature oriented.
- Removal of Package store Access control feature:
This feature has been removed as it only worked for “windows desktop client” and for the “Remote desktop server environment.”
- No support to Connection groups:
Both the connection groups viz. per-user and Global Publishing are no longer supported. This implies that now the applications in the connection group can only be the one which are either published as Per-User or the one which are published as Global.
