Packaging in App-V is the best preparation enterprises can do today. It works with more apps, at least until the rest of MSIX is built, and you can quickly embrace MSIX through conversion when it becomes good enough.

They could have called it "App-V Version 6", but they are calling it MSIX to get software vendors to release in this format. Here is what the Microsoft MSIX folks say about App-V today:

PowerShell with App-v 5 Front coverUpdated for 5.1.  Now available in both paper and electronic form.

With the release of Application Virtualization version 5.0, Microsoft changed out all of the old scripting and programming interfaces and replaced them with PowerShell interface modules. In this book, the authors dig well below the limited online help that comes with the product to fully expose not only the PowerShell cmdlets but underlying object interfaces, with numerous examples.  

Both IT Professionals looking to build some custom scripting, and Developers who want to build add-on products will find this complete reference guide a valuable resource for working with App-V. This book is not only more accurate than the release documentation, but is full of working examples on how to use the four PowerShell modules released with the product.

Written by Tim and Kate Mangan, this is a reference guide that aims to correctly document the PowerShell API exposed at the App-V 5 client, sequencer, and server.  Provides corrected syntax and examples of all of the App-V 5 cmdlets, as well as exposing the data object properties and methods required for more advanced use of the API. 

Version 5.1 of the book contains not only updates to reflect product changes, but we have added more extensive PowerShell script examples, often based on work performed for customers using App-V.  The page count of the book has expanded from 275 pages to 382 pages. 

Both paper or electronic copies may be purchased online via our publisher at Lulu.com.  The books may also show up on other online retailers (like Amazon), but the author gets a much bigger cut of the action when purchased through Lulu (and your cost is the same).

The Application Book front coverIt's All About the Applications...

After years of helping companies around the world with deploying applications and desktops, Tim Mangan shares his insights into the world of installing and configuring apps.

It does not matter what technologies you use to deploy them, the bottom line is that if you don't know the apps you will end up in a lot of trouble down the road.

This book represents a reverse engineering, or sorts, to the Windows API. Designed as an IT Professional's view of the API, it looks at the output of installers to explain what those files and registry entries are trying to do.

The book also covers everything from the high-level processes and practices involved in preparing for application and desktop deployments down to the deep details of how applications interface with the end-user, the operating system, and each other.

A writer and speaker at international conferences, Mt. Mangan is recognized as a Microsoft MVP for 12 years running, and as a Citrix CTP for more than 5. His "day job" is as head of his own company where he teaches his "Masters Level" classes on Microsoft App-V.

Windows System Performance Thrugh Caching book cover imageThe caching of code and data is a common technique used throughout the Windows Operating System in order to improve system and application performance. While System Performance is a difficult subject, this work represents a digestible look at performance by isolating the top fifteen or so ways that caching is used in the Windows 7 Operating System.

Not only are each of the caching techniques described and detailed, but experiments are provided that the reader may use to look further into the performance of their own systems. Numerous free tools are used for these experiments, and the appendix provides an excellent guide to using these tools.

This book represents the culmination of years of research and a series of presentations made by the author in front of audiences around the world.
