TMurgent is continuing our world renowned App-V and MSIX training with remote learning.  With the on-going pandemic hanging on, we hear from some customers that they need the training but just still can't travel.
This class is widely considered to be the ultimate place to learn about App-V and MSIX Packaging, and will be delivered remotely, allowing you to train from work or home without travel.
Book With Confidence / No Cancelation Policy: Whenever a single student is registered and confirmed for a class, we will not cancel the class. Period.
The Experts Level App-V and MSIX Packaging class will be run by TMurgent.  This 10-day class (4 hours/day) will provide you with both theory and practical hands-on experience in our training lab.  This class is both for those who are new to App-V and/or MSIX, and those with prior experience already.
The class will be held online at a time equally convenient to Europeans and Americans.
Note: The class is a 10-day class for 4 hours each day.


The course is designed for people with a general background in IT and/or Packaging. We take students with or without prior experience in App-V.

There are no hard pre-requisites to be able to take the class, however, the following are helpful:

  • Knowledge and experience with general Microsoft Server Administration.
  • Knowledge and experience with SQL Server Administration.
  • Experience with other "packaging" techniques helpful.
  • Experience with App-V Administration and Sequencing.
Remote students (only) will be required to build your own VMs at your site prior to the start of the class:
  • Each student will require two Windows VMs.
  • Our pre-class prep kit will provide detailed written instructions, a video introduction to building the VMs, and installers for the tools needed.
  • Any type of hypervisor may be used, but the student must have access to create and revert to "snapshots".
  • You will need additional storage on a share for the application installers and created packages.
  • It is highly recommended that students have two monitors, microphone, video camera, and earphones.
In-person students (when available) need to bring a laptop with wireless lan to tap into lab equipment provided.


IT Pro Experts Packaging for App-V & MSIX

A hands-on class where you will learn the concepts, techniques, and latest tricks to be successful and packaging and configuring applications for delivery within the Enterprise using both Microsoft App-V and MSIX.

Whether you use modern or traditional application delivery methods, the applications your company depends on must be customized, and in many cases remediated to work in today’s desktops. MSIX is the future for new applications, you will also need App-V because MSIX will be much more work for older apps and is currently incompatible with many of your apps.

The three major portions of the class are:
  • Concepts: Provides an in-depth understanding of the underlying concepts of Packaging, especially for Application Virtualization and MSIX. We also cover the "Windows API", from the prospective of the IT Pro - helping you to understand how the app intends to integrate with the OS and the End-User.  With this core knowledge in place, you are now ready to learn the packaging techniques.
  • App-V Sequencing: The heart of the class. Demonstration of "best practice" techniques and techniques to tackle a variety of application types that do not deploy easily.
  • MSIX Packaging: The other heart of the class. Demonstration of "best practice" techniques and techniques to package in MSIX and Psf, and issues to look out for and alternatives to consider.
