Type: Free
Version: 2.4.0.0 Updated: May 4, 2015

AppV_SelfService (AVSS) is an alternative deployment tool for App-V 5 virtual application packages.

AVSS is a flexible alternative for App-V distribution.  Intended for non-persistent and semi-persistent environments where publishing time and distribution complexity must be reduced, it is also capable of being a full replacement for persistent VDI and desktops. It does not require a database, and can publish virtual applications and connection groups.  Publishing may be automatic, or virtual applications may be authorized and left to the user to select which applications they want using a simple and convenient GUI, even when the user does not have administrative privileges.

Type: Free
Version: 3 Updated for 5.1 October 16, 2015

Update:   I have updated some, and added new reports!  These should work on any version of the 5.0 through 5.1 App-V Reporting Server.  These reports require no inputs and may be scheduled in SRSS every night.

Microsoft has now released and updated some report templates also. Google "App-V 5 SRSS Report Templates"  Many of these reports are intended for interactive use to filter things.

I created some sample reports that we use in our App-V training classes, and thought it might be useful to share these with the community.

XSD Schema for AppV 5 AppXManifest file
Rating: -
Type: Free
Version: N/A Updated: March 25, 2013

The AppXManifest.xml file is generated by the sequencer and stored internal to the App-V file. The AppxManifest file contains the complete package definition for applications and extension points. Portions of the contents of the AppXManifest file may be overridden by either DeploymentConfiguration or UserConfiguration files.

Microsoft has done a half-hearted job to define the syntax in the external config files, with more of an example than definition, but have not defined the format of the internal AppXManifest file at all. While very similar, there are many things in the AppXManifest file that have not been seen in the external config files. Additionally, the syntax changes on a few items. This is a work-in-progress, currently built using information from about 80 different packages.

This XSD file that can be used in an XML editor to create and/or validate the syntax.

AppV_DeployNPublish
Rating: 5.00 (2 votes)
Type: Free
Version: 2.4.0 Updated: November 12, 20151

AppV_DeployNPublish consists of four free tools, primarily for use on App-V 4.* clients configured for "standalone mode".  These tools are useful to deploy App-V Virtual Applications without a back-end server. Better than MSI Deployment because you get Per-User Publishing and Active Updates. The ideal "simplest" way to deploy virtual applications -- especially to Terminal Servers!


 

Brief Description:

The package includes and installer for the three tools, pdf, and sample App-V client install script. A brief description of these tools follows:

AppV_DeployApp

Performs the equivalent to running the virtual application MSI, except that you can control whether publishing of shortcuts happens. Also, if you update the reference a windows file share as the source, and then update the sft on that share with Active Update, the client will take the update upon the next (connected) launch of the app.

AppV_DeployContent

Same as AppV_DeployApp except that rather than doing one package at a time, you point to a share folder and it will walk the folder structure to deploy all of the packages it finds.

UPDATE 2.4.0 to AppV_DeployContent: 

  • When more than one SFT is in a folder, the tool now uses Creation Date instead of Modified Date to determine which is newest.
  • Added a DEPTHLIMIT setting to constrain package searches to a limited number of subfolders.  Default value of 0 is old behavior.  Set in GUI, CMDLINE, or Registry.

AppV_ManagePackages

Supplements the App-V Client Management Console. This tool works on a package basis rather than application.

AppV_PublishApp

 Can be used as an alternate way to publish per-user shortcuts using application groups in AD. Typically used in a login script.

The first tool in the package allows you to right click on any application shortcut, including those of App-V virtual applications to publish to XenApp. The wizard prompts you to select the servers from the list of servers in the farm, and Active Directory Users/Groups to publish to.

The second tool in the package allows selection of multiple App-V apps by selecting those found in the App-V cache for publishing to XenApp. The wizard interrogates the App-V client for the application list to choose from, prompts you to select the servers from the list of servers in the farm, and Active Directory Users/Groups to publish to.

PageMania is a tool designed act as a badly behaved application that:

  • Allocates a lot of memory,
  • Reduces it's working set, also called a trimming operation, causing the memory to be flushed out to the page file,
  • Modifies a byte in each memory page to cause page faults and bring it back into it's working set. In most cases, the memory will be retrieved from the standby lists cache so a disk read from the page file will not occur unless memory is in demand. Note that by modifying each page, this will cause the next trimming operation to re-write to the page file again.

TMNetSim: Quick and Easy Network Simulation Tool
Rating: 5.00 (9 votes)
Type: Free
Version: 2.0.4.0 Updated: February 12, 2007

TMnetsim is used to simulate a wide-area network for a single protocol.  It is used to create test situations that simulate real-world situations in a reproducible way.  TMnetsim works with TCP based socket protocols.  TMnetsim may be deployed on any PC with a Microsoft OS:

  • A stand-alone PC
  • the Client PC
  • the Server PC

TMnetsim is primarily used to simulate network delay, however, in some (rare) cases it may be used to simulate packet loss or out-of-order delivery, as well as packet capture.  Settings to control delivery delay and loss may be set on a global basis or per conversation basis.  These parameters may also be set in a per-direction basis.  A monitor allows you to view current conversations, and you may select specific instances to modify parameters for that connection on-the-fly.

TMnetsim works with most all TCP socket based protocols, including FTP, RDP, and ICA.  To work with any arbitrary protocol all you need to know is the TCP Socket that the server listens to.  Loss and out-of-order delivery will cause most TCP protocols to fail, so it should be used with caution.  Only when the application protocol provides additional flow control or sequencing at a higher layer is use of Loss and OOO possible.
