Video: Tim and 5 other App-V MVPs interviewed by TechTarget’s Colin Steele.

In October, we had a group of 6 App-V MVPs together in Boston to meet with the App-V development team. We had an opportunity to shoot an interview at that time with TechTarget’s Colin Steele. We were handcuffed in that we couldn’t disclose information we knew about (under NDA) the final App-V release, but we were free to talk about …

Why our new App-V 5 Class won’t be called “Masters Level”

As we are getting ready to launch our final App-V 4.6* “Masters Level” training class next week, I am being hit up by people wanting to know about a 5.0 class.

So let me make it clear. We won’t be labeling the new 5.0 class as a “Masters Level” class. oWhen I started training folks on App-V many years ago, …

Why I am Documenting the App-V 5 Schemas

One of the great things about App-V 5 is that they have eliminated so many things that were not documented nor well understood. For so many years, my OSD Illustrated and OSD Reference e-book were the only place to find the full OSD file syntax.

Microsoft is aware of it already and confirmed it is an issue. Although it, at first glace, appears that adding a File Type Association while in the sequence editor causes the sequencer to crash, I can confirm that on other apps I can add new file associations just fine.

App-V 5.0: Evolving the “Integrated Experience” for Virtual Applications


I ran the effort to build the original version of App-V at Softricity, the company that Microsoft acquired the product from, almost a dozen years ago, and the 5.0 Beta release represents the most dramatic set of changes to the product since.

Summer Fun with App-V 5.0

It’s summer. My new book is almost published, and I’m cutting back on my golf (well, a little) due to a bad ankle. So what do I do? Dig into the App-V 5.0 Beta, of course! With lots of shiney new thigs to look at, plus a few dark corners with cobwebs to poke into, it is almost as good …
