Here’s another article written by Microsoft Partner and MVP Leandro E. Carvalho that’s over in the TechNet Wiki. This one talks about managing and installing Microsoft Application Virtualization packages:
After the sequencing process of applications through the Application Virtualization Sequencer, you can import them into the App-V Management Server and manage them through the Application Virtualization Management Console.
To do that, open the Application Virtualization Management Console in Start> Administrative Tools. Before you start to import the applications, you can create groups for better organization. In the example in Figure 1 were created three groups: Office Apps, Apps Line of Business and Finance Apps. Click the right button in the group that the application must be imported and click Import Applications, as also shown in Figure 1…

Microsoft is really confused when it comes to deployment and management of App-V packages. You talk to different people and hear different stories.
There are a lot of articles and talk about using the App-V Management Server, but then I have heard people from Microsoft talk about how using SCCM and fully integrating App-V deployment and management in that, is the way forward (which I can understand, fitting into the strategy of having one configuration management tool). However, there are precious few technical articles on this latter scenario.
