speedThese Microsoft App-V Package Accelerators help you quickly and easily create an App-V virtual application package for various software packages, all by simply clicking through a Wizard and answering a couple questions. By following the Wizard in the App-V 4.6 SP1 Sequencer, you can easily sequence a new package by using these Package Accelerators.

Package Accelerators feature:

  • Easy to follow instructions
  • Repeatable deterministic App-V Package Creation
  • No complex Prescriptive Guidance to follow

Basically if you can follow the Wizard then you can sequence these packages. 

We have some available in the Download Center here:

We also have a couple more, including one for Office 2010 that allows you to easily create an App-V package for Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 at the following TechNet Gallery site:

* Note: This may get missed by folks who download the Office 2010 Package Accelerator so please be aware of this issue and solution.  From the Q & A section on that site:

Please don’t forget to delete all instances of “~” from the OSD files in this package.  The Accelerator adds a “~” to the SFT_MNT variable, which will cause the package created by the accelerator to fail. 

Also note that you need to be on App-V 4.6 Service Pack 1 for these to work so if you haven’t upgraded yet then this is just another reason to get that done.

  • Will the Project Pro 2010 Accelerator have a version for XP SP3? Thanks!

  • "We have some available in the Download Center here"

    Hopefully there will be more on the way?  It sounds like a great concept, I'm hoping that you'll follow through on this and provide more than 2 (Actobat Reader 9 [which is outdated] and Office 2010).

    I was very disappointed to find only 2 available after reading this announcement.  The posting had me expecting more.  If you're going to hype something up like this, please at least be able to back it up.  Who knows how many will never give this a shot because of the underwhelming product out of the gate?

  • Looking for a package accelerator for the Lync Client 2010... Available somewhere?

  • have you something disabled with the RSS-Feeds in this package? I'm not be able, to add some new feeds in my outlook..

  • Is it possible for someone to create a malicious Accelerator and upload it to the community?

  • Ok guys, let's make this site more legit. A couple apps is not going to make me flock to this product.
